Hybrid Loss-in-Weight DIWE-200 Feeder
The University of Applied Sciences Constance appraised the Gericke Hybrid Lossin-Weight Feeder which is equipped with a mechanical vibration damper system and tare compensation as being a system that compensates adverse effects caused by vibrations coming from the plant or the volumetric feeding system itself. Tare compensation permits high feed rate and high metering accuracy even when processing very light and cohesive products like e.g. TiO?, Ca?CO?, kaolin and various salts as only the bulk material in the hopper and in the feeder is weighed and not the weight of the feeder itself.
A number of helix and screw designs are available in order to be in a position to offer the best possible solution for various bulk materials. The hybrid weigh feeders can optionally be equipped with a vertical agitator in order to prepare bulk materials with very poor flowing properties for the metering process. Combined with the intelligent Gericke controller, Easydos Pro, the feeder can meet the high demands made on short term accuracy. User programmes and configuration can be downloaded off the computer and the settings and data can be downloaded by means of a memory stick.
Gericke manufactures complete feeding, conveying and mixing systems. Trials with our complete product portfolio can be carried out at our Test Center in a handsonlike environment.
