Hopper Scale and Weigh Silo Description

Hopper Scales (also known as Weigh Hoppers or Weigh Bins) and Weigh Silos are common for many industrial sites. Most types of products are stored in bins, hoppers, or silos before transfer to a mixer or a transport vehicle and using a weighing system enables accurate monitoring and management of the product while in the bin or silo.

By installing a Weigh Hopper (or installing loadcells under an existing hopper) control in transfer of product around site can be achieved, either using a simple weigh indicator with some batching functionality or using a batching software package. Weigh Bins and Weigh Silos ensure good product traceability as well as improve mixing accuracy.

Loadcell Kits

Existing hoppers and silos, that were not initially installed with a weighing system, can be retrofitted using loadcell kits installed under the hopper or silo. Silo loadcell kits are specifically designed to control silo movement and prevent excessive silo tilting.
