Understanding the mechanical basics of weighing and weighing concepts
In bulk solids handling operations, weighing systems fill, batch, blend and proportion, measure, and convey. As a result, a weighing system's accuracy is key to controlling product quality and operating costs. This article discusses mechanical basics of weighing that contribute to weighing accuracy, as well as various weighing concepts and their applications.
Weighing systems -- both mechanical and electronic -- play a key role in receiving, processing, and shipping bulk solids. An accurate weighing system can help control your final product's quality and your operation's costs. For instance, an accurate batch weighing system ensures your ingredients are added in the correct proportions. An accurate bagging scale ensures that your bags are filled within a given weight tolerance.
