Flow control scale

   The Feedamatic 67 flow control scale delivers a uniform flow of material at the exact selected rate regardless of changes in moisture level or density.

   The Feedamatic's features and benefits include

   • advanced, twin single-point load cells on four isolated mounts to ensure accuracy, even when load is off center;

   • uniform flow, compact and hygienic because of new mass-flow weighing hopper design;

   • inlet and discharge gate bearings and socks that are isolated from material flow to increase hygiene and reduce maintenance;

   • maintenance-free, high torque, quarter-turn actuators with sealed moving parts for hygiene and safety;

   • superior ergonomics — calibration panel is on the scale while operator's display can be located remotely;

   • precise control with fast start-up and shutdown because of maintenance-free, force-balanced electro-pneumatic positioner.
