Portable Bin Unloader Offers Accuracy, Flexibility

Thayer Scale has introduced a line of Loss-In-Weight Portable Bin Unloaders. This design allows for accurately discharging and metering of material stored and transported in either side or bottom discharge portable bins. The system can be configured for either continuous loss-in-weight feeding or batch.

Weighing is done through Thayer's patented low-deflection, non-wearing FMSS (Force Measurement Suspension System) flexure scale, which measures vertical loading and can take high load-directed overloads (1,000%). The FMSS Scale design uses counterweights to negate the tare weight of the support structure, feeder and bin. 100% of the scale capacity is thus used to weigh material, resulting in the best possible weight signal resolution.
