Exact Metering with a New Process
With tempometric metering, Lanco GmbH, Hanau, Germany, will be unveiling a previously unknown metering principle for masterbatches and additives.
The traditional volumetric and gravimetric metering methods are often not sufficiently precise or are too expensive when it comes to low throughputs and additive volumes of only a few percent. The tempometric metering principle of the Lanco BatchSaver is the solution here. It is a dynamic process in which the effect of gravity during the free fall of the metered material in combination with very exact time measurement of the material discharge results in permanent and vibration-proof precision. According to the manufacturer, even additional volumes of less than 0.5 % of an additive can be easily metered. Lanco also promises ease of operation using a high-speed microprocessor-based control unit with RS485 interface. The software supplied allows convenient process logging, management of process settings, formulations, and much, much more.
