WHAT IS A MULTIHEAD WEIGHER?
Multi-head weigh fillers (also known as combination scales or radial scales) are commonly used when applications require the highest accuracy and over all throughput.
Offered in 10, 14, 16 and 24 head configuration, each head (or lane) includes a dedicated load cell. The process starts by filling the center of the PrimoCombi scale with bulk product; product will then vibrate from the center cone to the individual vibratory feeder pans. These feeder pans will then transport product to the weigh bucket where it will be weighed and measured. Once weighed, the PrimoCombi’s PC will determine which buckets equal a near perfect match, once that match is chosen it is then locked and the buckets will dispense at the same time to the automatic packaging machine or a person manually packaging. The term multi-head weighing or combination weighing is derived from the fact that you are using multiple buckets or a combination of weigh buckets to achieve a weight.
|BUCKET VOLUME||HEAD CONFIGURATION||WEIGHT RANGE|
|0.5L||10,14||Up to 454 g|
|2.5L||10, 14, 16, 24||Up to 6 kg|
|5L||10, 14||Up to 25 kg|
WHEN SHOULD I USE THE PRIMOCOMBI?
1.High accuracy requirements
2. High production rates
In regards to high accuracy requirements, the PrimoCombi 0.5L multi-head weigher can weigh and dispense as little as 1 gram and is accurate to less than a tenth of a gram. The PrimoCombi is commonly used in applications where giveaway cannot exceed one full piece of product or typically several grams.
As for production rates, the PrimoCombi multi-head weigher should always be considered for projects requiring more than 30 packages per minute and can be used in applications requiring up to 200!
DESIGNED FOR SANITATION
Our design eliminates the risk of water penetration within the controls of the scale by separating the electronics as opposed to having to spray water directly over the electronics during sanitation. Competing brands have their electronics located in the base of the scale (the donut effect), requiring the removal of all the side panels (typically 6 panels with 4 screws each).
The PrimoCombi™ comes standard with single discharge chutes; we do not charge for increased performance and production output.
Also standard is the first ever single post hopper assembly which allows you to now adjust product inflow in seconds and rotates out of the way for product changeover and sanitation.
