Weigh belt weighers/feeders

April 1, 2011


Acrison’s Model 260 weigh-belt weighers and feeders are precision, heavy-duty, high-capacity devices designed to weigh and/or totalize the flow of dry materials in open-loop configurations or to meter dry materials as a weigh feeder in a controlled, closed-loop configuration. When operating as a weigher and/or totalizer, the Model 260(WF) continuously weighs product passing across the belt, producing an output signal directly proportional to the weight of product flow. When operating as a weigh feeder, the Model 260(F) continuously controls the feed rate (or rate of product discharge off the belt) in relation to a feed rate set point, via modulation of the belt speed by a multiprocessor-based control system. In this mode of operation, the belt, driven by a variable speed motor, is continuously regulated to precisely maintain the selected feed rate.
