An integrator, working for YKK, was looking to automate a process and needed a new system installed. The plant needed a system that would accurately batch zinc pellets to create the proper ratio with the other raw ingredients, which varies with every single batch. YKK originally desired a BBU with a belt conveyor to deliver the product at a 4.5’ elevation. We suggested a gravity, inline system which offered numerous advantages and minimized the capital investment. Advantages of 3Sigma’s system: no moving parts and mass flow design, led the customer to choose 3Sigma to provide the desired equipment.
