The GCDxy is a versatile dosing system that has been developed for reliable and accurate dosing of small to medium quantities of components. Designed as a movable system, it can operate with a large number of silos - and even a widely spread silo block. This compact system uses our ALFRA dosing slides, the ALFRA dose&weigh controller and is optionally available with our Weigher-in-Weigher concept. It is ideal for extremely accurate dosing of quantities ranging from 100 gram to 1.000 kilogram.
The compact design brings another advantage: a significantly reduced risk of contamination. The smaller dimensions mean the product contact surface is kept small, allowing the movable weigher to position itself above one or more discharge locations without the need for horizontal and vertical transportation like pipework and conveyors. This minimizes the risk of contamination.
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.
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!
