A combination bulk bag and manual dump batching system weighs bulk materials that are discharged from bulk bags and/or manually dumped from sacks, boxes and other containers and empties the batch into mobile storage bins.
A broken or damaged load cell can be impossible to detect or predict. Only once batches start appearing out of specification, or the weighing results appear unstable, do users realise that there might be a problem and call out a service technician to identify and repair or replace the broken load cell. This can result in lost production time and disappointed customers.
