Metered dispensing of reactive powders into reactors and large tanks has been a challenge faced by many chemical and pharmaceutical process engineers. The requirement to dispense difficult to handle ingredients in a contained and accurate method is an application which can be fulfilled and completely automated using specifically designed loss-in-weight (LIW) feeders. The combination of highly advanced load cell weighing technology, and a contained and sanitary feeder design provides for an ideal automated method of powder delivery, without the dangers and inefficiencies of traditional manual powder loading techniques. A variety of unique methods of design for the feeders are possible to ensure maximum accessibility.
