Low Capacity Weigh Feeders

The Thermo Scientific Ramsey Mini Weigh Feeder offers accurate weighfeeding of industrial materials at moderate feed rates.



The Thermo Scientific Ramsey Mini Weigh Feeder offers accurate weighfeeding of industrial materials at moderate feed rates. Its unique cantilevered and formed channel frame design provides a strong and sturdy weigh structure and allows for quick and easy maintenance.

We have over 30 years of experience designing and manufacturing weighbelt feeders. Every feeder is designed to meet the specific needs of the application. We work closely with our customers to ensure that each system meets their expectations for performance and dependability.

The Thermo Scientific Ramsey Model mini weighbelt feeder is designed for industrial weigh feeding applications with moderate feed rates and belt loading requirements. It accommodates flow rates of approximately 0.5 tons per hour up to 100 tons per hour, and belt loadings of
15 kg/m to 170 kg/m .

Theory of Operation

Material is fed onto the feeder through an inlet feed section equipped with a manually adjustable vertical slide gate to control material height. The scale carriage/weighbridge assembly measures the gravitational force of the material and converts this force measurement into an electrical output signal proportional to belt loading.

A digital speed sensor continuously monitors the belt speed.
The microprocessor-based electronics integrate the two signals to produce and display a true rate and a total weight fed. The electronics also provide an output signal for control and monitoring purposes.

For more information, refer to the separate product specification sheet on the Thermo Scientific Ramsey Micro-Tech 2000 or 3000 series of electronic integrators.

Features and Benefits
