A Loss In Weight Feeder was recently supplied to a West Australian Assay Laboratory to help test for ore grade and yields. Installed and commissioned by Accuweigh’s Perth branch, the Loss In Weight Feeder is used to deliver a metered feed of ore into a small Ball mill.

The Budpak Loss In Weight Feeder is fully Australian made with all fabrication performed at Accuweigh/Budpak’s manufacturing facility in Perth’s southern suburb of Bibra Lake in WA. Loss In Weight Feeders are designed to maintain a consistent flow of product out of a weigh hopper to suit application requirements. 

Budpak’s Loss In Weight Feeder delivers a programmable metered feed of between 50kg to 250kg per hour and is designed for use on a variety of ores 2mm or less in size and with Specific Gravities of between 2.7 and 5.0. Accuweigh’s fully programmable IT8000 Intelligent controller ensures high accuracy flow rates and was custom configured to provide the exact functionality this client required.
Designed for one person operation, Budpak’s Loss In Weight Feeder is self contained and includes the weigh hopper, feeder and sealed control panel all mounted in a powder coated steel frame. The out-feed is by an endless belted conveyor and the hopper is fitted with low level sensors, a refill beacon and an inbuilt emptying facility.

Accuweigh/Budpak is Australia’s largest weigh packaging company and has eight branches across mainland states providing superior product support on all types of scales, weighing and packaging equipment, including belt weighers, weigh feeders and Loss In Weight Feeders.
