A weighing screw is used to establish and monitor how much product is being conveyed and processed. This method is suitable for the recycling process of plastic (PET) bottles.
Do you not need accurate dosing because you only want to fill lorries, for example? But you still want to be able to control the amount of product being transported? Then a weighing screw is a good option. A weighing screw is designed for 24/7 processes. Naturally, you can also use it to temporarily restrict the feed line, for example, when replacing a full truck with an empty one. The weighing screw is mainly intended for coarser weighing and is therefore ideal for monitored transport of flakes.
During operation, the weighing screw displays the material speed in metres per second. You can also read the number of kilograms already transported and the flow control drive from 0 to 100%. This is made possible because special load cells measure the mass of the screw plus content. This is then monitored in a junction box.
Our weighing screws are optimally matched to your requirements and environment. This applies to the length and the design. We can also take care of integrating them into your production process.
