The KMG FlowWeigherTM is a game-changer in the world of production. Its ability to measure precisely what's in the tray, rather than estimating or weighing the entire conveyor, is a testament to its innovation. This approach allows it to provide real-time flow rate data, ensuring that your processes are optimised for accuracy and efficiency. The user interface is designed with operators in mind, providing real-time numerical and graphical flow rate data. With the touch-sensitive screen, operators can effortlessly navigate through various menu options, including recipe-based settings for tare and auto-tare. A secure calibration mode with a password requirement ensures data integrity and accuracy. The FlowWeigherTM offers a 4-20mA output corresponding to the flow rates, allowing for proportional control of other downstream equipment such as powder dispensers or liquid spray units. In the competitive world of manufacturing, where every measurement counts, the KMG FlowWeigherTM is the tool you need to achieve unparalleled precision, ensuring the quality and efficiency of your production processes.

  • KMG Patented Technology: The heart of FlowWeigherTM’s innovation lies in its patented technology. This system’s unique design sets it apart from other flow rate measuring systems, providing unparalleled accuracy and reliability.
  • Weighs Section of Counter-Balanced Trough: The FlowWeigherTM takes precision seriously. By weighing a section of the counter-balanced trough where the product sits, it offers highly accurate measurements without any significant product drop.
  • In-Line Product Measurement: Unlike some other systems that measure the entire conveyor, the FlowWeigherTM focuses solely on what’s in the tray. This in-line product measurement guarantees precise data and eliminates the need for estimation.
  • Hygienic Vibratory Conveyor Design: Maintaining hygiene in the manufacturing process is essential, particularly in the food industry. The FlowWeigherTM‘s hygienic vibratory conveyor design aligns with industry standards and ensures that your production environment remains clean and uncontaminated.
  • Robust Construction: The FlowWeigherTM is built to last. Its robust construction can withstand the rigour of the manufacturing environment, ensuring durability and longevity.
  • Load Cell Offload Design: This design feature minimises the risk of damage. The load cell offload design contributes to the system’s overall reliability and safety.
  • Simple Calibration Procedure: Calibration is straightforward with the FlowWeigherTM, simplifying maintenance and ensuring that the system remains highly accurate.
  • Main PLC Controlled – Simple Operator/Engineer Interface: A user-friendly interface is vital for efficient operation. The FlowWeigherTM‘s interface, controlled by a main PLC, offers simplicity for operators and engineers alike.
