FAQ for Experts. Answers by Experts.
Dosing technology sum-up
mo explains: There are so many dosing and mixing concepts that it’s easy to get confused. …
Is there a hard and fast definition of dosing accuracy?
mo explains: “Dosing accuracy” can be defined in many ways, depending on the application. …
How do volumetric synchronous dosing units work?
mo explains: Synchronous dosing stations meter all components simultaneously. The mass flow corresponds to the recipe at all times, and there is no need to actively blend the ingredients using a downstream mixer. …
How do asynchronous dosing systems work?
mo explains: With asynchronous dosing the individual material components of a recipe are dosed in portions independently from the processing machine cycle, therefore an additional mixing device is required. …
Why do volumetric dosing units need calibrating?
mo explains: In volumetric dosing, the output is not weighed – which is why it is important to establish a link between the volume of material being dosed by the unit and the actual mass of material. …
How do various types of dosing device work (2)?
mo explains: The choice of dosing device depends on which materials and method you are using, and what throughput you require.
In the last article (3), we talked about dosing screws and cone valves. …
How do the various types of dosing devices work (1)?
mo explains: The choice of dosing devices depends on which materials and method you are using, and what throughput you require.
To choose the right dosing device for your application, you need to consider three key points: …
What is the difference between volumetric and gravimetric dosing?
mo explains: A volumetric system doses material according to the space it occupies i.e. its volume; a gravimetric system determines the amount of material to be dosed by weight. …
