Learn how gain-in-weight and loss-in-weight batching systems work, how they're applied, and what to consider when selecting a system for your application.Manual batching is a time-consuming operation in which an operator adds premeasured ingredients or individually weighs ingredients before adding them to a blender or other process vessel. This operation can slow the entire process, generate considerable dust, and result in lost product through spillage and incompletely emptied bags. However, the biggest problem with manual batching is that it can be an inaccurate and inconsistent method of weighing batch ingredients, thereby affecting product quality and consistency. For many plants, whether large or small, switching to an automated batching (also called weighbatching) system is a cost-effective way to solve these problems.
