High-speed checkweighing systems

January 1, 2010


Suitable for weighing up to 60 bags or boxes of poultry and red meat products per minute, depending on unit size, new checkweigher systems offer a box unit capacity up to 50 lbs. Designed to withstand most processing environments, the checkweighers are constructed of heavy-duty type 304 stainless-steel tubing and feature a hermetically-sealed loadcell design with eight-point overload protection and a NEMA 4 controller enclosure. Hardware and software packages can be custom configured, and plastic belting enhances sanitation. The systems can be integrated seamlessly with existing poultry production operations.
