THAYER Accumulative Ingredient (Gain-In-Weight) Batch Scales are designed to accurately weigh solids and liquid materials ranging from highly fluid powders to corrosive chemical and ores.
Typical industries served: steel, aluminum, foundry, plastics, fertilizer, chemicals, food, cement, and many more.
Standard designs available in capacities ranging from 500 lb to 10,000 lbs. and bucket sizes from 5 to 100 ft3.
Small batch scales (under 25 ft3) are typically fed by screw feeders, vibratory feeders or small volumetric belt conveyors or rotary feeders.
The large batch scales can be fed by a front end loader, installed directly under storage silos or fed by screw conveyors, screw feeders, pumps or belt conveyors.
The system consists of a rotating “bucket” that turns and empties after a batch cycle. The “bucket” is mounted on Thayer’s Force Measurement Suspension System Cable Scale that has been used for more than 35 years in various weighing applications throughout the Thayer product line.
THAYER Cable Suspension System has no equal when it comes to its ability to tolerate the unintentional operator abuse that accompanies frequent equipment clean out, setup changeovers, equipment re-positioning, and mechanical repair if necessary. This patented system utilizes a series of stainless steel cables in conjunction with Torque Transfer Tubes to accurately focus a force to a tension-type (single) load cell, which is completely independent of load position. The system is adaptable to most load cells whether they are of the strain gauge or LVDT type.
Because the system utilizes only static components, there are no active elements to maintain, even under severe operating conditions. The cable suspension system is inherently self-aligning to the direction of gravity, and therefore, is not affected by building or foundation strains. It can be hung from the ceiling or mounted on wheels without concern.
