This High Throughput Powder Dispensing (Flux Weighing) system accurately dispenses and weighs powder into small paper cups for a global precious metals processing company. The system is capable of dispensing up to 50g of flux in to paper cups to a tolerance of ±.5g at rate of 1 every 36 seconds, or 1000 per a 10 hour run. Additional hoppers, output trolleys and output racks allow the system to produce 2000 cups every 24hrs. This is achieved by bulk feeding from both hoppers simultaneously to within 5 to 10% of the target weight then fine feeding from each hopper in turn until the final weight is achieved.

The system is also capable of blending 2 different powders in each hopper to a predefined ratio, with a maximum total of 50g and a tolerance of ±.5g for each hopper. The flux hoppers are mounted on to a hydraulic lift table to allow easy removal for loading, filling and cleaning. We are currently supplying additional hoppers and an output trolley to further increase the capacity.
