Many people are unaware of the importance of industrial dosage in those sectors involved in the creation and sale of food, chemical or pharmaceutical products. Whether for the treatment of raw materials or finished products, having an accurate and hygienic system for dosing quantities is essential.
What is an industrial dosage for?
We already know that this is an essential system in industry, but what is an industrial dosage for? As we have already mentioned, dosing technology allows the distribution of raw materials in exact quantities and time sequences. Through the different dosing systems, solid or liquid products are treated during the entire manufacturing process.
Industrial dosing systems.
Although each industry has very specific needs depending on the material it uses and needs to dose, in general terms we can differentiate between industrial dosing systems for liquids and industrial dosing systems for solids. The operation of these systems is different but the objective is the same: to weigh and measure the quantities in order to optimise the production and quality of the product.
Types of industrial dosing units:
- Gravimetric feeders operate on the basis of the loss of a specific amount of weight in a specific amount of time. Therefore, they do not use a base as a reference to calibrate the dosing rate.
- Volumetric feeders operate measuring volume not mass, therefore need to be calibrated before each use. In addition, these dosing systems are not able to automatically compensate for changes in the density of the material.
To sum up, dosing for industry is a need that technology has managed to overcome in an efficient way. Manual work throughout the whole process is relegated to supervision, as the different types of industrial dosing systems, increasingly specialised, allow you to optimise time and resources, increasing your safety in the workplace.
