Coperion K-Tron’s Smart Weigh Belt (SWB) feeder offers optional continuous online auto tare by using two Smart Force Transducer III digital weigh modules. Automatic and continuous online taring of the belt reduces costly maintenance, line shutdowns and laborious manual calibration and improves long term accuracy. The SWB feeder can be supplied in two different belt widths: 300 mm and 600 mm. The mass and volume flow rate is strongly dependent on the bulk density, the maximum allowable height of the bulk solid on the belt and the belt speed. By utilizing different control software, the Smart Weigh Belt can be used to feed material into a batch system.
Gentle high rate gravimetric feeding or metering of free flowing or friable products
Weigh Belt Feeders are relatively simple, extremely reliable gravimetric feeders providing high feeding precision and efficient process monitoring. They can be used as a feeder, batcher, or meter. The SWB is the perfect solution for wild flow metering, where headroom is limited, or when feeding friable material that may be damaged by other feeding methods. This compact gravimetric feeder can handle large volumes of bulk material with different flow characteristics.
Optionally, the SWB-300 and SWB-600 offer continuous online taring by using two weigh modules. This reduces costly maintenance, line shutdowns and laborious manual calibration while at the same time substantially improving long term accuracy and stability.
