Pendular Weighers, solution for dosing of sugar -
Pendular weighers are offering effective solution for
dosing of difficult product s like sugar.
Due to the chemical structure of the crystals of
sugar (C12 H22 O11) the handling of such product
requires particular care and dedicated equipment
for two reasons.
- Multihead Combination Weighers are not
suitable for this applications since there will
be a continuous leakage of product from the
weighing and storage buckets.
Moreover jumps and vibrations mashes the
sugar crystals generating powder.
- Standard Volumetric Filler with cup dosers are
either way not suitable because the filling
system of such equipment mashes relevant
quantity of product generating a lot of sugar
powder and at the same time the friction of
sugar crystals against the surfaces generates a
quick wear out of the Volumetric Filler
The most suitable equipment for handling of
granulated sugar (or other similar products) is a
penduling volumetric doser, connected to a
Pendular Volumetric doser for sugar.
The doser is composed of a loading throat which,
by means of a pendular motion, fills alternatively
one of the two dosing buckets while the other
download the product.
The two operations ( loading of product and opening
of the bucket) are mechanically linked in order to
grant the perfect synchronization.
The adjustment of the volume occurs by means of
an electro-cylinder which can be easily interfaced
with the feed-back device of the check weigher.
The pendular motion, generated by a lever is
driven by gearmotor and inverter, is controlled by
an encoder in order to create a real “electric axe”
with the packaging machine set below in order to
achieve the perfect synchronization of the drops at any
Entirely made of stainless steel and aluminum
“nipoy treated” the Volumetric doser, is motion
controlled and to a device which minimize the
influence of the variation of the quantity of the
product loaded, grants a high and constant weight
accuracy at any speed.
This is recommended to use in line checkweigher
installed after packaging machine that will
check the weight of every single product.
In the case of weight variations, correction
feed-back signal will be send to the dosing
system providing active net weight control loop.
