The net weighers are supplied product from a 3,000 litre capacity supply hopper, which itself is fed by a conveyor bucket elevator from the process line.
Product is drawn from the supply hopper via vibratory feeders fitted with interchangeable stainless steel woven screens which serve as a separator for oversize product.
The net weigher uses a variable speed vibratory feeder to provide two speeds, coarse and dribble feed, for control of product to the weigher for optimum accuracy.
The screening and feeding equipment including the weigh hopper are all enclosed in a dust tight housing with hinged access doors for easy cleaning and servicing.
The weighment of product is discharged into the valve bag filling attachment incorporating a high speed auger to convey the product into the valve bag, with vibrating bag compaction during filling.
The net weighers was all supplied by Accuweigh’s Melbourne branch mounted on a free-standing frame with operator platform designed to Australian standards. Accuweigh has also supplied four bulk bag filling stations and a gross weight valve bagging machine to the same client.
