A new weighing and recording system designed specifically to track
bulk materials such as food ingredients has been launched by
international weighing and bagging specialist Chronos Richardson.

The new Chrono-Tronic Bulk 9 weighing and recording system has a number of food industry applications, including feed, grain, milk powder and flour - indeed, any item which is shipped and processed in bulk.

Chronos Richardson claims that the new system is designed to meet the most stringent accuracy classes demanded by the OIML (International Organisation of Legal Metrology) recommendation R107 on automatic weighing systems.

The system features subtractive taring, allowing the user to quickly see the net weight of the product without having to subtract that of the container, manual zero setting, in-flight material control, residue weight determination and a filling counter.

The filling control allows full flow input in receiving mode with additional medium and dribble flow control for shipping mode, the company said.

A built-in simulation mode can be used for both training and troubleshooting purposes, although the system has been designed for optimum flexibility and ease of operator use. Clear weight information and messages are displayed in plain text and language can be selected via the menu from English, German, Spanish and French, plus one other native language.

A full keyboard can be connected to simplify data entry, while a wide range of standard and optional inputs and outputs, together with fieldbus networking capabilities, ensure that the system can be integrated into both new and existing installations.

Communication with peripheral devices such as printers or laptop computers is easily achieved and a wide range of printout options can be programmed in the unit.

The Bulk 9 is designed for use with a wide range of weighing scales, in particular Chronos Richardson's Chrono-Weigh series of bulk weighers.
