CPM Beta Raven introduces the MicroMaster Conical Scale System

27 May 2021  |
This unit provides high-speed weighing along with superior accuracy and the ability to weigh 6 ingredients at the same time on a 24-bin system (4 bins per scale hopper).

The unique design provides a 3 cubic foot / 85 liter hopper per every four bins which allows simultaneous weighing of six ingredients on a 24-bin scale system.  Each scale hopper has 60° sides with stainless steel construction that provides corrosive durability and smooth, rolled vertical sidewalls which make it extremely difficult for any material to remain in the scale. The integral vibrator pads are fitted with air vibrators controlled by pneumatic solenoid valves that activate while discharging the scales.  Each hopper has 10″ discharge butterfly valves with open and close switches.  These supplied discharge components mate to the transfer device by provided flexible curtains.

The 14-gauge, 304 stainless steel bins come standard with 6 cubic foot /175 liter capacity with options to upgrade to 10 cubic foot / 283 liter.  The single straight-sided bin design features 45° beveled corners, three vertical sides, and a 65 ° pitch bottom side panel.  This provides the optimum throat discharge arrangement to promote proper material flow and inhibit bridging. 

The auger motors are 1 HP, 1725 RPM, 230/460VAC 3 phase controlled by variable frequency drives (VFDs) housed in a motor control panel with integrated Allen-Bradley or Siemens PLC IO.

Scale size ranges from 4 bins up to 24 bins on a common frame with a typical scale resolution of 0.01 lbs. / 5 g depending on the surrounding area.  All surface areas that touch product are 304 stainless steel and the scale has a Class II Division 2 Hazardous Location rating.

Options include: Dust collection hoods, bin lid lock with barcode interlock, refill lids for being fed from a tote or fill conveyor, bin level sensors, and bin vibrators.

Applications include: Pet Food, Animal Feed, or Premix facilities. If you want reliability, optimal batching performance, and precision accuracy, CPM Beta Raven is leading the way in process automation and weighing systems for more than 40 years.
