American Italian Pasta Co.: Weighing of pasta on a weigh scale

Pasta moves through a Triangle combination scale on its way to the bagging machines.

The Triangle scale/bagger combination has a rated speed of 100 bags/min. A linear, as opposed to circular, combination scale, the machinery has nine weigh hoppers above 18 holding hoppers from which final weight combinations are made. With each cycle, the scale¡¯s PC picks the right combination of holding hoppers to release into a bag.
