Acrison Model 402x-Bdf-1.5 “Weight-Loss” Weigh Feeder Engineered to Accurately and Reliably Feed a Broad Variety of Dry Solid Materials with Difficult Handling Characteristics

Press release date: Oct 06, 2017

Acrison, Inc., an innovative global leader in dry solids metering and handling technologies for over 50 years, offers the Model 402X-BDF-1.5 “Weight-Loss” Weigh Feeder. This highly versatile feeder combines a flow-inducing dual auger/agitator mechanism with a centrally positioned metering auger operating at proportional but dissimilar speeds to accurately and reliably feed a broad variety of dry solid materials, especially those possessing difficult handling characteristics. As with all Acrison ‘Weight-Loss’ Weigh Feeders, the Model 402-BDF-1.5 includes a technologically advanced, exceptionally durable and dependable dynamic weighing system, permanently calibrated and adjustment-free. Stable, high resolution weight sensing is produced by Acrison’s Ratiometric Digital Weight Resolver, which instantaneously generates an unamplified, non-integrated real-time weight signal (no signal delay) for use by one of Acrison’s various multiprocessor controllers for precise feed rate control.

With minimal maintenance needs and a minimum life expectancy of 20 years, the strong performance capabilities of these ruggedly built, non-temperamental weighing systems have been proven in thousands of installations worldwide -- providing users with a high degree of confidence in their ability to perform reliably and dependably 24/7. The entire weighing system of the weigh feeder is also guaranteed for 5 years, including the associated electronics. Feed rates range from several pounds upwards to about 2000 pounds per hour (based on product weighing 40 pounds/cubic foot). Continuous metering accuracies range between +/- 0.25 to 1 percent or better (error) at two sigma, based on a given number of consecutive one minute sample weighments. Cost of ownership is the lowest in the industry.
