CONTROL Automation will show its newly released loss-in-weight controller for the Autoflex range of flexible-wall metering feeders. It is an advanced, precision, bulk solids feeder /controller.
Ample input and output facilities, combined with a range of industrial communications protocols make it a powerful and versatile instrument. When matched to an appropriate feeder it will control feed rates from 1 to 26,000kg /h.
Control Automation has recently developed, and applied for a patent for an attachment to the collapsible IBC box, allowing powder to be discharged or metered direct to process. (Typically from a CHEP box.)
This means powder packaged in a collapsible IBC can be transported from supplier to end user's store. After attaching a cone valve hopper, the IBC can be moved direct to the process and placed on a discharge station. This system provides guaranteed discharge and allows automatic metering of the product to process by rate, or by batch.
