Loss in weight feeder DE-DDW-40-FX/2 in detail

The DE-DDW-40-FX/2 Loss-in-Weight Feeder is a feeder for volumetric and gravimetric feeding of bulk materials such as powders and granulates. The dosing screw and screw tubes, which can be easily dismantled in two directions, allow flexible adaptation of the device to the dosing capacity. Various attachments and container lid variants support both manual and fully automatic filling processes and allow filter bags and jet filters to be attached for venting.

 

An innovative method of product activation by external agitation of the feeding hopper supports a material flow that is gentle on the product and ensures a constantly uniform screw filling level even with heavy-flowing bulk solids. For this purpose, a low-wear trough is externally and particularly gently deformed by means of a novel process, which considerably reduces disturbing influences on the weighing signal. The weight signal is also much more stable during and after refilling, so that gravimetric - and thus more accurate - dosing can be resumed much more quickly.

* The specified dosing capacities are theoretical values in volumetric operation and with a screw filling ratio and a motor speed of 100%. For gravimetric feeding, the feeding capacity is somewhat lower. The actual capacity is largely determined by the material properties of the bulk material.
