Dosing is a process of weighing or measuring a portion of raw materials of the required weight or volume with the help of a doser. The accuracy of the measured dose depends on compliance with the recipe and as a result – the quality of the final product. Dosing can be performed by weight and volume.
Volumetric dosing – measuring a given volume of the product. This is a fast method, but with a large error, since an equal volume can accommodate different weight of the product.
Gravimetric dosing – weighing of a specified weight of the product. Requires more time, but provides greater accuracy.
The greatest accuracy is given by volumetric-weighting dosers.
Dosers are divided according to the principle of action:
• discrete dosers – supply the product in equal portions at regular intervals;
• continuous dosers – the product is fed evenly and continuously, providing the greatest accuracy.
By the amount of dosed products:
• one-component dosers for one product only;
• multi-component dosers, including the function of mixing.
Automatic dosers of dry and liquid components provide high accuracy. Up to 100 dosing programs can be stored in their memory – for different materials and mixtures. In addition, they keep a record of the products production in the technological cycle: by shifts, current and archived. Dosers work with any type of feed conveyors, continuously feeding the product.
