TrueWeigh Hopper (TWH)

TrueWeigh Hopper (TWH)
Extrusion Control

Engineered as part of the Conair TrueWeigh Gravimetric Extrusion Control System, the TrueWeigh Hopper measures the mass flow of material into the extrusion process and sends this loss-in-weight information to the TrueWeigh Controller. The controller then accurately monitors or adjusts the extruder screw and/or haul-off speed to maintain consistent yield control. This enables an operator to run a uniform product within the tightest tolerances at the lowest possible cost.
