Deliver materials or ingredients in “batches” from a group of feeders into a collection hopper, usually used to manufacture blended products

Deliver materials or ingredients from a feeder into a continuous process, usually  designed to operate 24/7, except during maintenance

Description of Process

Feeder Type


Loss-in-Weight Batching Station

Loss-in-Weight feeders with load cells simultaneously dispense their material or ingredient into a central collection hopper.

Vibratory Feeder, Screw Feeder

Loss-in-Weight batching is ideal for batching micro and minor ingredients where accuracy is vital. It is the fastest and most accurate system to feed individual ingredients simultaneously into a batch process

Gain-in-Weight Batching Station

 Volumetric feeders, each one containing a specific material or ingredient, dispense their material in sequence into a central collection hopper, which is mounted on a scale or load cells.

Vibratory Feeder, Screw Feeder

Gain-in-Weight batching is ideal for batching major ingredients where accuracy is a little bit more flexible. Gain-in-Weight batching systems are more economical when high accuracy is not a major need.

Continuous Feeding

Feeding Type

Description of Process

Feeder Type


Volumeric  Feeding

 Volumetric feeders are open-loop devices, where the feed rate is a function of constant vibrator motor speed and is not governed by any ongoing data feedback from the operation.

Vibratory Feeder, Screw Feeder

Volumetric feeders are used when the bulk density of the material fed is consistent or where feeder accuracy is not a major need.

Gravimetric Feeding

Gravimetric feeders capture and document moment-by-moment feeder performance during continuous process operations,

Vibratory Feeder, Screw Feeder, Weigh Belt Feeder

Gravimetric feeders provide precise feed rates and an immediate alert if there is any interruption of material flow.
