    Density Measurement with Belt Weighing


    Hello, I'm an engineer from a pet-food plant.

    I heard that is possible to measure bulk density using the belt feeder. It is an easy concept:

    You have the weight of the product (kg/m) and also the area.

    If you have some experience with this kind of issue, please contact me.

  2. Hello Demazon,

    Density is a relatively easy measurement with a weighbelt provided the belt is flood-fed. This will produce a constant material cross-section, so the only mass variable will be the bulk density.

    Note the typical proprietary belt control may not necessarily include programming for density calculation, however we provide Allen-Bradley PLC-based gravimetric controls that we can easily program any measurement you require. Please forward application details to dschmidt@melfitechnologies.com and we would be pleased to forward you equipment specifications.
