How it Works

Loss in Weight Feeders combine a feeding device such as a screw feeder, an electronic weighing system and control system to create a gravimetric or volumetric feeder. This combination can control the set material flow rate based on the weight of the product rather than its volume. As material flows from the feeding mechanism, weight measurements are fed continuously to the control system that then adjusts the feed devices rate to ensure that material is fed accurately as required

Loss-in-weight systems only perform optimally when a appropriately designed refill system feeding into them is implemented.

  • Flexible polyurethane hopper agitated by amplitude adjustable paddles for consistent screw filling and mass flow of ingredient without degradation
  • Interchangeable screws and screw tubes allowing quick adjustment to changing ingredients and feed rates 
  • Optional separate paddle motor to allow paddle speed adjustment for difficult flowing ingredients
  • Universal - for virtually all flowable ingredients (powders, pellets, flakes, fibers, etc.)
