Our solution

SCAIME proposed a continuous loss-in-weight dosing system that takes care of flow control and material totalization. 

  • 4 load cells R10X 1t for weighing the 1.5t hopper
  • 1 Loss-in-weight feeding controller eNod4-F
  • 1 PLC / HMI Unitronics V570


Feeding at constant flow rate by loss-in-weight dosing system, up to 35 kg/min

  • eNod4-F calculates the flow rate (kg/min) by loss-in-weight.
  • eNod4-F manages the lime feeding according to the targeted flow rate.



Customer benefits

  • From a target transmitted by the PLC, eNod4-F controller manages the entire flow rate control.
  • The automatic setting of the PID controller parameters optimizes the flow rate control and makes easier the implementation of eNod4-F.
