The Sackett Loss-In-Weight Blend System is a revolutionary development in continuous blend systems with blending capabilities exceeding 250 TPH. What separates Sackett’s Loss-In-Weight from the others is its utilization of a proven, dependable mechanical design along with advanced automation to give the customer unprecedented speed, flexibility, dependability and accuracy.
The Sackett Loss-In-Weight features stainless steel hopper construction with extra width and holding capacity. Each hopper rests on stainless steel load cells and are supported by structural steel framing. Dosing of each material is done via a stainless mesh chain conveyor, providing a very large feed opening to minimize flow issues.
Sackett’s PLC (Process Logic Control) control system is combined with control gates and VFD (Variable Frequency Drives) on each feeder conveyor to allow the user to custom optimize the system through the integrated software. This “user friendly” software prompts the operator for formula and hopper ingredient designations. Using a database of materials and hopper design parameters, the software will walk the operator through system optimization. This method allows for great flexibility in formulations, speed, and incorporation of micro nutrients, trace elements, and liquid coatings.
