Choosing an automated batching system:
Gain-in-weight or loss-in-weight
Today’s automated batching systems are based on either gain-in-weight or loss-in-weight operation. This article covers basic information on each type and then explains how to choose the system that’s
right for your application.
A batching system automatically weighs each of
several ingredients before they’re dispensed to a
downstream process or operation, such as mixing
or packaging. The system may use gain-in-weight or loss-in-weight batching.
