The weight accuracy of individual recipe ingredients for a continuous blending, granulation, or extrusion process has a direct effect on product quality and bottom-line savings. This article explains how to optimize that feeding accuracy.
Too often, companies don't consider the savings an efficient loss-in-weight bulk solids feeding system can provide over time and, instead, consider only the upfront equipment cost. An efficient loss-in-weight feeding system, however, can improve feeding accuracy for even the lowest feedrates or high-value ingredients and reduce overall process costs.
