The ALFRA FCD Flexible Component Dosing System uses a dosing plateau with ALFRA Dosing Slides. Therefore it very accurately doses large and small quantities.
The weigher-in-weigher system incorporates two weighing hoppers for a very wide dosing range. Large quantities are being dosed directly into the 100 kg weigher. Small quantities are initially being dosed into a 5 kg weigher after which this is being emptied into the 100 kg weigher. This system reduces the number of silos required since large as well as small quantities can be dosed from the same silo.
Reduced risk of contamination
The combined weighing system is mounted on a moveable frame that enables it to be located under each dosing position and above the discharge position(s). This significantly reduces the risk of contamination.
Self-learning ALFRA dose&weigh software
The FCD uses ALFRA dose&weigh software that can increase the dosing performance by 20%. This program is self-learning to optimize the dosing performance without having to separately fine-tune individual parameters. This gives a more consistent production capacity because the influences of differing product characteristics are limited. It also reduces required operator interaction. The system has a user-friendly touch-screen control panel and information can standardly be duplicated in a central control room.
Dust extraction and easy to clean
To simplify cleaning, inspection and maintenance, the FCD has a special cleaning position for the weigher-in-weigher system. The FCD also features a dust extraction system to avoid dust residue in the weigher and for a cleaner workplace.
