Portable bin unloader offers accuracy, flexibility

THAYER SCALE-Hyer Industries

Pembroke, MA… Thayer Scale has introduced a line of Loss-In-Weight Portable Bin Unloaders. This unique design allows for accurately discharging and metering of material stored and transported in either side or bottom discharge portable bins. The system can be configured for either continuous loss in weight feeding or batch,

Weighing is done through Thayer's patented low deflection, non-wearing FMSS (Force Measurement Suspension System) flexure scale which measures vertical loading and can take high load directed overloads (1,000%). The FMSS Scale design uses counterweights to negate the tare weight of the support structure, feeder and bin. 100% of the scale capacity is thus used to weigh material, resulting in the best possible weight signal resolution.

Founded in 1949, Thayer Scale is a pioneering developer of continuous weighing and feeding equipment for the dry solids conveying and processing industries. Thayer’s Belt Scales and Weigh Feeders of both the Weigh Belt and Loss-in-Weight types, cover an extremely wide range of applications in virtually all industries that involve dry solids conveying and processing. From Loss-In-Weight Feeders that feed vitamins into cereals at rates below 1 pound per hour to 6-Idler Conveyor Scales weighing coal at rates up to 10,000 tons per hour, there are more than 100 proven product variations available to suit most application requirements.

Thayer Scale enjoys a unique reputation as a supplier of equipment that provides the rare combination of measurement precision and extreme robustness. Equipment installed more than 40 years ago continues to operate reliably and accurately.
