Weight control solution for inclusions

22 February 2021

Sparc Systems has launched loss-in-weight depositor – Hera – which is designed to help meat, fish, bakery, fresh produce, dairy and confectionery manufacturers eliminate waste. 

Rather than sieving or scattering dry free-flowing products onto applications manually or using waterfall style dispensers, both of which can result in inconsistent distribution of inclusions, Hera deploys a simple technology comprising a loss-in-weight control system and feeder featuring a vibrator sitting on top of load cells. Typically, the system is integrated onto processing lines prior to packaging and contaminant inspection. Two machines can also be integrated with a single control weight station and used as a salt and cure depositor for bacon. 

Guaranteed to deliver an accurate spread, as each conveyorised product passes in front of the Hera sensor, the depositor feeder tray vibrates gently scattering the dry ingredients along the entire width of the product. To prevent high waste levels and address the issue of powder accumulating in and around the machinery and conveyor system, instead of a continuous stream, the dispensing slows and stops until a new product tray passes in front of the sensor.
