Presse Release: IBC- Weighing System
Product innovation: IBC weighing station with tilting function
Höfelmeyer IBC stations support ergonomic and effective emptying of residues
Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC) are used in a variety of industries. However, no matter whether it is for emulsions, juices, oils, flavours, additives, paints, colours, etc., the industry recognises again and again the need for improvement initiatives for the handling and emptying of the IBC. Höfelmeyer Waagen has developed a new type of IBC weighing station based on these market requirements, which has since proved itself many times in practice.
The weighing systems are used in interim storage, handling and dosing of liquid substances in industries such as food, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics etc. and can be especially adapted to the media and requirements. They consist of a frame made of stainless steel and one or more weighing platforms with tilting devices. The containers are simply and safely positioned on the station by means of a lift truck or forklift (anti-slip protection integrated). With increasing emptying, the containers are tilted by means of gas springs and thereby the emptying of residues is optimised. The tilting position is automatically determined according to the weight, so that production can continue without interruptions.
