Smart Weigh Belt (SWB) Feeders are a key component used for the weighing of a variety of bulk solids in a wide range of processes. The most typical application is for feeding / weighing into a continuous process. The process material may enter the Smart Weigh Belt directly from an upstream hopper or via a prefeed device like a screw feeder.

The Smart Weigh Belt can be used as a feeder, batcher, or meter. By utilizing different control software, the Smart Weigh Belt can be used to feed material into a batch system. For inventory control or metering, the Smart Weigh Belt can be placed into a constant speed configuration to measure or totalize the amount fed into a process.

The Smart Weigh Belt offers gentle material handling, an important benefit compared to other feed devices like a screw feeder when handling the following materials:

  • Flakes (e.g. corn flakes, bran flakes, and wheat flakes)
  • Lumpy bulk solids (e.g. vegetables and fruits)
  • Shear sensitive materials (e.g. corn flakes, frozen vegetables and frozen fruits)
  • High abrasive bulk solids - due to a low friction coefficient applied to the materials
  • Low melting bulk solids (e.g. fat flakes)
