New weighing, batching and storage system eliminates machine downtime

July 21, 2008
New weighing, batching and storage system from Meese Orbitron Dunne, features an innovative, dual-hopper design that ensures material is always on hand and ready for processing. Ideal for managing powders, granules and liquids used for continuous and batch production of foods, beverages, pharmaceuticals, inks, paints, coatings, plastic products and others, the new MOD Material On Demand system integrates two plastic hoppers capable of holding up to 800 pounds each with designed-in bench scales all secured within a durable, powder coated steel frame. Machine operators draw material from one hopper during production and when it is empty, material is drawn from the second hopper without halting production. The empty hopper is removed by forklift and replaced with a fully loaded hopper without idling staff or machinery.
