C J Waterhouse company limited were approached by a UK glass company specialising in the manufacture of bottles, primarily for the spirits industry to supply a dosing and weighing system to replace a poor functioning existing unit. Due to its location, age and design the existing weighing system suffered from poor accuracy and vibration.
The supplied system comprised of a small sack tip unit with access stairs & platform from which a trough screw feeder with radial catch gate was suspended. Mounted from the end of the screw feeder is a duplex loadcell batch weigher again with a radial discharge gate.
The system provides automated weighing and discharge of small decolouriser batches directly into the existing process line.
