Loss-in-weight feeding success: As easy as 1, 2, 3
Proper material handling, weighing, and control: Getting these three basics right will help your loss-in-weight feeder satisfy your process performance requirements. Before explaining how these basics affect your feeder's design, this article describes loss-in-weight feeder operation and discusses factors for evaluating your feeder's performance.
Moving and metering your material, weighing it correctly, and controlling the material's flowrate are equally important elements in getting top performance from your continuous loss-in-weight [LIW] feeder. If one element isn't up to par, your feeder's performance will suffer.
