Overview

Marel Hopper Scales are designed for weighing a continuous product flow into batches for packing and other purposes. The unit consists of a stainless steel hopper, a load cells, and a weighing indicator. The Hopper Scale is controlled by a software application, which normally runs on an M2200 indicator.

The scale is robust and designed to withstand the harsh environment of food processing plants, without any trade-off in weighing accuracy.

The M2200 Scale Indicator is operated with push buttons and a keypad, using a simple built-in menu system. The indicator has a large, bright weighing display, showing tare, grade number and other data. The display also has a large filling bar which clearly shows the packing status in real-time.

Versions

Arc Opening Solutions

Arc opening solutions are used for various products, typically in applications such as packing or in-weighing. This type of hopper is well suited for packing or weighing whole products, such as fish and poultry, and fish meal. On arc-opening hoppers, the bottom of the hopper opens upwards from the centre. The shape of the hopper makes the product slide out easily. The hopper is used typically with the M3000 controller.

Features

  • Available in sizes ranging from 100-1000 litres
  • Normal weighing accuracy 1000-1500 deviations
  • Ideal for weighing a flow of products
  • Suitable for fish, meat, poultry, fresh and dry

Bottom Opening Solutions

Bottom opening solutions are normally used for very sticky or small, non-fragile products.  The product is released from the hopper by horizontally slipping the bottom (a sliding plate) from under the product.

Features

  • Available in sizes ranging from 4-10 litres
  • Normal weighing accuracy 1000-1500 deviations
  • Ideal for yield monitoring on flow lines
  • Suitable for fresh or sticky products
