Weigh batch/blend system

May 17, 2004

Flexicon's weigh batching and blending system pneumatically receives and weighs multiple bulk materials while blending previously weighed batches. The filter receiver of the pneumatic conveying system is mounted on load cells, enabling the system controller to weigh each incoming material in sequence by starting and stopping the conveyor. Accumulated ingredients comprising a batch are automatically discharged via a slide gate valve into a ribbon blender.
