DPK – Continuous Loss-In-Weight Dosing
The DPK dosing unit is a compact, loss-in-weight, precision feeder, suitable for the dosing of small quantities of colour or additives into a flow of base material. The masterbatch or additive to be dosed is contained in a hopper, made of a specific transparent, shock-resistant, acrylic material making the contained material and level of load immediately visible. The hopper can be easily removed with no tools for replenishment or additive change.
The precision of the machine is absolute and is guaranteed, even on very low rates. The load cell technology and the control algorithm, make the DPK immune to vibrations, achieving higher dosage precision without risk of overdosing the additive or masterbatch. The control of this dosing unit is supplied with a simple and intuitive touchscreen interface, where it is possible to store and recall the recipes of the products. Continuous production data is available for extraction where reporting is necessary.
DPK has ethernet, RS485 connections and is arranged for MOWIS.
