Ingredient Batching Systems

Thayer Scale offers a wide variety of BATCH WEIGHING systems, from the simplest single Micro ingredient feeder in the Loss-In-Weight design to multiple ingredient systems in the Gain-In-Weight configuration. Special consideration is given to metering characteristics of the materials to insure complete system reliability.


Ingredient Batching Systems

A wide selection of feeders and scales are available to handle any material from granular and flaky to fine powders. The combination of Thayer designed prefeeders, material flow aids, flexure/cable scales and operating controls assures component and one source responsibility.

Features and Benefits:

  • Gain-In-Weight systems
  • Loss-In-Weight Systems
  • Continuous Weighing
  • Major and Minor ingredient systems
  • High accuracy load cell and scale controllers
  • Recipe management and reporting.


THAYER Accumulative Ingredient 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 10 to 100 ft3.

The 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.

THAYER Cable Suspension Batch Scale 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.

  • No scale can take more abuse.
  • Sustained sensitivity without maintenance.
  • Inherently self aligning to gravity.
  • Nullifies heavy tare loads.
  • Adapts to all mounting arrangement.
  • Tolerates heavy overloading.
  • Withstands extraneous lateral shocks.
  • Easily accepts Automatic Test Weight Lifter for calibration.
  • Low Maintenance.
  • Versatile and Flexible.
