The CentriFeeder MCV is a gravimetric feeder meter, that works by
integrating the flow measurement accuracy of a solids mass flow meter
with the flow controlling capabilities of an Integrated Slide Gate. Combined
into a single, multifunctioning weigh feeder, the MCV both measures the
flow rate and total of the product that runs through it, but also controls the
flow rate and total to a predetermined setpoint. As product flows through
the MCV and flows over the curved measurement pan, the instantaneous
flow rate is measured and used, via a PID control loop, to modulate the
Integrated Control Valve. Because the CentriFeeder MCV is able to
respond to the changes in the measured flow rate within 100 ms and can
typically be within +/-1.00% of the flow set-point within 1 second, it offers a
perfect alternative to conventional Loss-in-Weight feeders. The result is an
extremely accurate way to measure and control the flow of any granular
product such as pellets, grains, fertilizers and more.
