An order for a second Prisma checkweigher was recently received by Accuweigh’s Adelaide branch from Port Lincoln Tuna Processors.
Prisma checkweigher will be fitted with a wider product belt than their existing checkweigher to better suit the larger 1kg foil pouches of liquid cooking sauces currently in production.
Prisma 08D3 series checkweighers are rated at IP65, but IP67 models are also available for full washdown environments.
The new checkweigher is fitted with a pusher reject mechanism and will be operating at a relatively slow speed of 50 packs a minute to suit existing product output.
Accuweigh’s Adelaide branch manager, Ian Cunningham, also specified the length of the associated in-feed and out-feed conveyors to also match the 400mm belt width and length of the Prisma checkweighers to minimise spare parts requirements for the client.
