Fill to Perfection. Control Inventory.
Filling bins, tanks, and hoppers properly, without underfilling or overfilling, means an accurate hopper weighing system is non-negotiable. Tank and hopper scales allow your operation to fill to perfection every time without production interruptions. We offer tank and hopper scales with a variety of options to meet the needs of many different industries – all of which rely on accurate weighing to control inventory. High-vibration systems, systems customized for your batching & blending, extra fast loading and unloading capabilities – we can put the perfect products to work for you.
How Hopper Scales Work
A hopper scale system generally consists of multiple load cells, one placed on each foot of the tank or silo. These are connected to a display unit that shows the weight of the materials contained within the hopper. Tank weighing scales are the best way to measure the contents of a tank or hopper because they are always connected to the vessel and therefore always provide an accurate measurement of the materials.
The Benefits of Using a Hopper Scale System
Here are several reasons your operations can benefit from hopper scales:
- Efficiency — Because they are always connected to the tank, hopper weighing scales save time compared to having employees manually weigh materials during loading or unloading.
- Accuracy — Knowing exactly how much you have on hand at any given time is essential when it comes to forecasting and sourcing, and tank weighing scales give you the most accurate picture of your current inventory levels for certain materials.
- Versatility —Tank weighing systems are robust enough to be used outdoors. They also come in various capacities to provide accurate measurements for relatively small loads as well as much larger ones.
Typical Applications for Hopper Scales
These scales are a critical element for a wide range of bulk material handling applications in numerous industries. From agriculture to food production to manufacturing, these instruments are essential for proper blending, mixing, batching, and portioning.
