Low-maintenance weigher

November 1, 2009




Heat and Control’s Ishida cut-gate weighers weigh free-flowing dry powder and granular products. Typically requiring less maintenance than auger and volumetric fillers, says Heat and Control, the cut-gate feed system also reduces product damage and giveaway. Models are available with up to 10 weighing heads, capable of speeds up to 15 wpm per head. All product contact parts can be removed without tools for fast cleaning and changeovers.
