Bulk components

The ALFRA BCD combines high throughput with excellent accuracy, which is made possible through the unique ALFRA dosing slide.  The combination of high troughput and excellent accuracy ensures that dosing and weighing is no longer the factory bottleneck. This workhorse machine is low cost yet has high performance, handling batches from 10 kg up to 3000 kg in a single machine. 

Self-learning software optimizes the flow profile for highest speed and precision, reducing waste and thus saving on expensive raw materials. When the batch is complete, the correct weight is discharged onto a transport belt or into an under hopper or mixer positioned on a lower floor. 

Pioneering dosing slide

KSE's pioneering dosing slide makes fundamental improvements over traditional dosing systems using screw drives. It has few moving parts for easy maintenance and long life (>20 years). It delivers raw materials with greater speed and accuracy, and has an enormous dynamic flow range (1:1000).

The unique KSE dosing slide maintains the all-important First-In-First-Out material flow, eliminating deadzones in the silo. with its very large discharge area it is highly effective at avoiding bridging and rat holing. Vertical delivery means no product damage or compaction.

ALFRA dose&weigh software

The embedded ALFRA dose&weigh software uses historical data to start the coarse dosing and then adjusts the fine product flow profile dynamically, achieving up to 20% more throughput – even for materials with varying flow characteristics. The improved accuracy saves raw materials, while batch times are shorter and more predictable. Now, materials dosing is no longer a process bottleneck!
