Gravimetric Feeder With Tare-Compensation
The Swiss Gericke Group has a new weighing system called Diw-E-Star. In combination with the Gericke GAC feeders it now covers the medium range of feed rates in the Gericke portfolio of gravimetric hybrid feeders, typically from 10 up to 2000 kg/h (depending on bulk density).
The DIW-E-Star from the specialist for modern bulk material processes is available with hopper sizes from 50 l to 200 l net volume. Due to the modular approach, all hopper sizes fit into one weighing frame. All hoppers are equipped with vertical agitators to ensure mass flow even for cohesive powders. The weighing frame itself has been designed to combine highest mechanical stability with a lightweight construction.
Due to the tare-compensation mechanism the load cell only measures the actual product weight, and vibrations are filtered out mechanically before even reaching the load cell. This makes the DIW-E-Star suited for dosing tasks where precise feeding in challenging production environments is required, such as in the chemical and construction materials industry.
