Hybrid weighing systems with tare-compensated load measurement

Gericke’s gravimetric feeders with a tare-compensated weighing system are perfectly suited for applications where emphasis is put on both highest accuracy and exceptional robustness. Because the dead load of the feeder is mechanically compensated, the whole load cell range is available for measuring the weight of the bulk material only. Due to our unique spring-damper system, vibrations are filtered before they even reach the load cell. Thus, Gericke’s hybrid loss-in-weight feeders are especially suited to feeding bulk materials with a low bulk density in challenging environments.
