How Volumetric Doser Works

Yushine volumetric feeder is equipped with a stepper motor to control the output volume of masterbatches or additives accurately. It utilizes a PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) for precise calculations of the proportions.

The Masterbatches are transported to the measuring chamber using a screw-feeding mechanism. Then, the rotation of the measuring screw pushes the masterbatches into the mixing chamber, facilitating the dosing and blending processes. To maintain accuracy for subsequent dosing, the machine includes a cleaning screw designed to remove any residual masterbatches from the measuring chamber.

Complete Guide Volumetric Dosing System

Yushine volumetric dosers are versatile and capable of automatically mixing a variety of materials such as virgin plastics, regrinds, masterbatch, and additives. They can be applied across different manufacturing processes, including injection molding, extrusion, and blow molding.

Here are the FAQ lists:

What is the difference between volumetric feeder and gravimetric feeder?

The difference between volumetric and gravimetric dosing and the benefits of each depends on the application you are using the dosed product.

Gravimetric dosing is done by weight, which involves a scale to weigh out or measure a product. This method requires less technique than volumetric dosing, as it’s all based on weight and measurements.

 Volumetric and Gravemetric

The volumetric dosing method measures the volume of material without being influenced by the ingredient’s weight, density, or size. The Volumetric Doser is used when it is desirable to mix a specific volume (weight/volume) of one or more ingredients in a constant amount.

Volumetric dosing is more accurate and repeatable than gravimetric dosing but requires sensors and flow meters to measure the stock material flow. Gravimetric Dosing–Gravimetric is a simpler and quicker means of measuring. This can be used with slower or less expensive scales.

Why Calibration is Essential for Your Volumetric Doser

It is necessary to calibrate volumetric doser because the dosage must be accurate. The volumetric doser is very important in the plastic industry because it can accurately measure the number of materials, increase production efficiency, improve product quality, and reduce waste. By calibrating your volumetric doser, you will get an opportunity to create more products with less material.

Any imbalance in the settings may result in severe issues with the molding. Industries such as injection molding, blow molding industries, etc., require the volumetric doser to be calibrated to prevent overfilling and underfilling of the machines. As a result, volumetric calibration doser produces consistent volume in the given cycle time.

Volumetric Dosing Caliberation

Every time you change the mold or product dimensions you want to create, you need to calibrate your volumetric doser. This prevents errors and improves the overall quality control.

Without calibrating the volumetric doser, it is quite difficult to calculate the exact consumption of stock materials or suddenly occurring shortage of material, which results in low efficiency of the production process and cost waste.

Which Industries Are Suitable for Volumetric Dosing Systems?

Several industries utilize volumetric doser to streamline their production needs. Some of the major sectors are as follows:

Plastic Industry

Every industry has its need for a measuring instrument. While in the plastic manufacturing industry, volumetric doser is the answer to their demand. It helps control their material supply more effectively and makes their production process smooth and disciplined. It is used to dispense color concentrates in container and bulk form for most plastic manufacturing industries like PVC, Polycarbonate, PET, PC, Polyester, etc.

Pharmaceuticals

Pharmaceutical volumetric doser could be used for liquid products, based on the weight or volume of products, and flow is controlled automatically from the main machine to connected devices, it’s widely applied in medicine filling and powder packing. The volumetric dosing dispenses accurately, automatically, and efficiently the desired amount of powder, liquid, or granular material.

Food Industry

The role of a volumetric doser in the food industry is to determine how much powder mix or granules should be put in a can, tube, or another container. You can use it for food ingredients as well as for chemicals. It saves time and money for manufacturers, distributors, and food service establishments by providing faster and more precise measuring ingredients for their products.

Volumetric Color Mixer Usage and Safety Guide

  1. Installation of Equipment
  • The volumetric mixer must be positioned on a level, stable surface to prevent any movement or tilting during operation.
  • Ensure a solid connection to a consistent power source to facilitate the smooth functioning of the electrical components.
  • The operational control panel should be mounted within easy reach for convenience.
  • Position the color masterbatch container in an accessible spot for effortless opening, usage, and replacement.
  • The masterbatch container should be sealed adequately to prevent contamination from dust, which can lead to inconsistent coloring.
  • Regularly inspect and clean the mixer’s agitator and the transfer pipes to avoid the build-up of powder materials.
  • Label each component with clear signage for monitoring operational status and safety cautions.
  1. Operating Procedure
  • Perform a comprehensive check of all equipment parts, including electrical and mixing systems.
  • Activate the equipment’s power to initiate standard operation.
  • Use the control panel to select the required color and quantity settings.
  • Load the appropriate color masterbatch into the feeder, ensuring it’s free from clumps for even distribution.
  • Seal the masterbatch feeder, then start the mixer and transfer mechanisms.
  • Allow the system to run until the master batch is consistently blended and delivered to the production apparatus, like an injection molder or extruder.
  • Upon completion of the dosing, shut down the equipment to cease operation.
  1. Safety and Maintenance
  • Operators should be well-versed in the mixer’s functions and safety measures through professional training to prevent accidents.
  • Protective gear such as gloves and masks should be worn to protect against masterbatch exposure.
  • Constantly monitor for any irregularities during operation, and halt the system immediately if any are detected.
  • Conduct timely cleaning and maintenance post-operation to maintain the equipment in optimal condition.
  • Adhere strictly to the formulation ratios when adding masterbatches to avoid inconsistencies in the mix.

By adhering to these operational guidelines and safety measures, the volumetric color mixer can be utilized efficiently, ensuring the production of high-quality plastic products with consistent coloring.
