Hopper scale ABS-XL

The ABS-XL hopper scale is designed for high flow weighing of dry commodities with good flowability such as cereals and fertilizers. It is particularly suitable for the loading-unloading station in grain elevators to manage the ship/train/truck in-bound and out-band.

The weigh cycle is managed by Precia Molen I 410 ABS instrumentation system, the hopper scale acts as a discontinuous totaliser with non-constant batch weighing. Its simple and yet solid design makes for easy installation and maintenance.

The ABS-XL hopper scale comprises two main parts:

  • A feed section which must be fitted under the product feed upper bin. This section is equipped with one, two or three feed gates depending on the model.
  • A weigh hopper supported by four load cells fitted on a rectangular frame. This metal frame is supported by the floor or the support frame.

The weigh hopper is equipped with one, two or three discharge gates depending on the model.
