Inline Vertical Pipe Weigher

The reliable solution for


of cereal, wholemeal, pellets and granules

Exact moisture regulation of all kinds of cereals and grains


  • Inexpensive and dependable measuring system
  • Impressive accuracy (+/-0.5% to 2.0%)
  • Simple installation into available run pipes
  • Expandable for dosage controls


  • The grain to be weighed is first slowed down in the feedpipe by means of a falling brake and then reaccelerated, following which is conducted through a pipe bend, which is suspended in a load cell. The load cell is weighed in exact proportion to the quantity of the throughput.
  • The electronic evaluating system amplifies and processes the electric signal of the weighing cell. The actual throughput is digitally displayed in tons per hour, which is monitored by two adjustable limit values.
  • The weight of grain being transported through the Vertical Pipe Weigher is calculated from the throughput signal by an electronic integration device and subsequently, displayed on a resetable summation counter. In event of programming a planned flow capacity, an electronic reset meter is available as fittings product. For driving dosing and control technique, an analogue output device shows actual flow capacity. The Vertical Pipe Weigher is made of service-free construction and a working system guarantees impressive accuracy.

  • The measuring pipe should be assembled so that the middle section of the pipe, containing the mounted load cell, is exactly vertical.
  • The grain supply always passes through the 90° falling brake. It is important, that there are no sources of vibration where the unit is installed, but if strong vibrations occur in the piping system, the supply and runoff connections should be fitted with rubber sleeves. One should also pay attention to air streams that may occur flow procedure.
  • For compensation of pressure a connecting pipe is fitted near scales outlet. It is recommendable to mount the electronic evaluator at such a distance from the measuring pipe that it can be seen clearly.
  • The electricity is connected in accordance with the connecting plan supplied. The following cables are available:
