The electronic weighing system in continuous flow Tolflux from Toledo do Brasil is a scale for continuous weighing of granular materials used for several applications, from the loading and unloading of grain in ships, trucks and wagons, even in industries that need control of the raw material flow used in the industrial process, serving both for weighing solid products (grains, soy bran, crystal sugar, VHP, rice, cashews, corn, wheat etc.) and for liquids (alcohol, honey, must, oil, etc.).
Among the main characteristics of Tolflux (weighing system in continuous flow), it is worth noting that its self-supporting structure does not require additional structures and walls, reducing total costs for the customer and installation time and its cylindrical shape with minimized height and diameters reduces the cost of transporting the material to the upper bucket, allowing for the use of smaller spaces, since the conical weighing bucket allows better accommodation of the product and the weighing system is protected by the cylindrical structure being immune to wind and weather, allowing less stabilization time and a faster process, independent of environmental conditions, its interface is friendly to the user, guided by function keys and menus, which facilitates the programming of parameters and operation with automatic simulation and operation resources that facilitate training operators and the provision of information maintenance, allowing to check the reliability of the system. In addition, it is also possible to print various reports to identify if the programming was done correctly, if there were alarms and which and how much of the products were weighed, and the operation is possible in two ways: Dispatch (shipping), when the total load to be weighed is known and Receiving (landing), when the total load to be weighed is unknown.
The product to be weighed must be transported through a conveyor belt, bucket elevator, screw, gravity or any other form of loading. It goes through the upper bucket, is weighed in the weighing bucket and unloaded in the lower bucket from where it will be extracted by a conveyor belt, bucket elevator, screw or any other suitable means of extraction.
|- Opening of the upper bucket gate and filling of the weighing bucket;||- Closing the upper bucket gate, stabilizing and registering the weight in the weighing bucket;
- Submission of data for printing or to the computer, PLC etc. (optional output according to the target equipment).
|- Opening of the weighing bucket gate to discharge material into the lower bucket.||- Weighing bucket gate closing, stabilization and tare record.||- Beginning of a new weighing cycle.|
