MDS HO Balance

The MDS HO Balance is the gravimetric answer for dosing high capacities from 50 kg/h up to a maximum of 1,200 kg/h. The system doses this high output of additive without making any concessions to accuracy. The gravimetric technology makes thispossible for both injection molding and extrusion applications.

The unit has an integrated weighing module that precisely measures the throughput by the loss-in-weight principle. The fully gravimetric system continually calibrates the dosageand adjusts automatically. The refilling of the MDS HO Balance is controlled by an integrated pneumatic operated knife valve at the top flange.

The MDS HO Balance handles granulates, difficult regrinds and free-flowing powders. It is capable ofprocessing hot materials up to 180øC.

”The MDS HO Balance is perfectly capable of dosing our dried PET flakes that reach up to 180øC”
