Loss-in-weight feeder/cable suspension scale
Thayer Scale has introduced a line of Loss-In-Weight Feeders specifically designed to handle materials that are extremely free flowing and fluidizable.
The Loss-In-Weight Model LWY-SC-RF with Rotary Feeder was developed as a means of improving the accuracy handling fine materials over conventional Loss-In-Weight Screw Feeders. The unique design incorporates a rotary feeder that provides high accuracy and completely dust-tight from product inlet to outlet.Thayer Scale's The Model LWY-SC-RF is ideally suited for applications feeding into pneumatic conveying systems. The system can be configured for either continuous loss in weight feeding or batch. Weighing is done through Thayer's patented low deflection, non-wearing FMSS (Force Measurement Suspension System) flexure scale which measures vertical loading and can take high-load directed overloads (1,000%). The FMSS Scale design uses counterweights to negate the tare weight of the support structure, feeder and bin; this means that 100% of the scale capacity is used to weigh material, resulting in the best possible weight signal resolution.
