Weigh Feeders

Active Weighing Solutions’ range of Belt Feeders in Australia handle light/low flow rates up to heavy-duty high flow rate feeders - indoors and outdoors.

An Active Weighing Solutions Belt Feeder is a slow speed short conveyor incorporating a single idler, full floating frame Belt Weigher design. These Weigh Feeder models cater for bulk materials feed rates from 1kg to 5,000 tph and deliver weighing accuracy 0.5% and better. Weigh Feeders are commonly used to control bulk material flow rate into a process or to blend products on a continuous basis. Installed under a bin, an Active Weighing Solutions Weigh Feeder can be set to:
  • extract material at a specified rate
  • batch a pre-defined amount of material
Belt Feeders provide continuous weighing with better accuracy than both Belt Weighers and Weigh Belt Conveyors because the cross sectional areadoes not change. Changes in bulk density are accommodated by the weigh controller which has the ability to increase and decrease the belt speed as required.

Multiple Linked Belt Feeders

A number of Weigh Feeders used together can be linked to ensure that if even one unit runs out of the product, all units will stop. Limit relays are also available to provide an output signal to operators wherethere is a problem.

Weigh Belt Feeder

At Active Weighing Solutions, our weigh belt feeders are used to control the flow of bulk solids. The product is typically fed through a chute onto the weight belt in a continuous stream and processed into the system. An electronic controller will calculate the mass rate and derive variables based on the weight. Our weigh belt feeders come with a range of components, including high-quality conveyor belts, load cells, full floating weigh frame (belt weighers), speed sensors and a very reliable digital weigh controller.

Based on the structure and environment of your workspace, our weigh belt feeders are available in multiple variations. We provide enclosed and open weigh feeders for both indoor and outdoor usage. Additionally, we supply weigh feeders for food applications, feed testing, chemical application, coal application, and more. We’ve got a weigh belt feeder to optimise your operational flow no matter what industry you’re working in. Weigh belt feeders are the perfect accompaniment to other processes needing fully automated bagging lines and automated bulk bag filling systems.

Weighing Solutions.

A weigh belt feeder will ensure your operation runs in optimal condition. Utilising an appropriate weigh belt feeder ensures that the correct amount of material feeds into each process run. They make for excellent quality assurance solutions as they control and measure exactly how much material is being used to create a final product.


Weigh belt feeders can be completely customised to suit your industrial applications. Our experts will help you find the best weigh belt feeder for your production system by analysing your processes and identifying suitable options. Depending on the material you’re weighing, our team will advise you on the best weigh belt feeder for you. Contact us today for more information.
