Using a mass flow meter for automatic fast-fill batching — Part I
Do you have to slow your automatic batching system's material flow down to a trickle as it nears the batch setpoint? Would you like to shorten your batch cycles to 10 seconds or less? Would you like to simplify your process by running material at a constant high flowrate while still maintaining batch accuracy? If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions, then a fast-fill batching system may be the solution you're looking for.
Unlike traditional loss- and gain-in-weight batching systems that use two flowrates (high and low) per batch cycle to achieve accurate batches, a fast-fill batching system maintains one high flowrate throughout the cycle and still produces accurate batches. The fast-fill system can work quickly and accurately because of how it obtains weigh measurements.
