The measurement principle
Our tried-and-tested turbocharger technology feeds the asparagus to the weighing line. A cutting unit is positioned upstream of this and can be used as an option if the asparagus is to be given a fresh cut edge.
The filled trays are conducted over a throughput weighing unit. The weight of each tray is registered three times, which gives a secure average value. The filled trays are then placed on 8 belt scales.
The calculator now knows both weights and fills the belt scales with the remaining quantity until the target weight with the pre-set tolerances is reached. The asparagus is then transported to the removal tray and can be put manually into a flow pack or bundling unit. If the target weight is either not reached or exceeded, the asparagus is automatically transported to the return belt and to the renewed weighing process.
