Material Weighing Systems

Sterling offers a variety of standard and custom material weighing systems for many industries and applications.

Micro Weighing Systems

We offer supply bins, feeders, automatic bin refilling, work platforms, bag handling equipment, dust collection, and batched material conveying equipment (pneumatic and mechanical). Systems can be either manual, semi-automated, or fully automated to best meet our customers’ needs.

Minor and Bulk Weighing Systems

sterling-material-weighing-systemWe offer minor and bulk weighing systems, ridged tote bin Systems, Large and small supply bin systems manufactured from Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel and Plastic. This uniquely designed system features 18 supply bins and 4 scales with batching software for formulations, inventory tolerance control, lot tracking, and corp interface.

Systems are modular in design that can be easily expanded — many of our customers focus on the most frequently used raw materials and expand the systems to incorporate more raw materials over time. Sterling material weighing system consists of supply bins, scale hoppers and work platforms that are customized for each application. Supply bins capacity range from 1 to 125 cubic foot and the scale hoppers range from ¼ to 75 cubic foot capacity. Typical systems include supply bins, feeders, scales & support structures. Supplied systems to date have included one to eight scales with up to 48 supply bins with feeding devices. A variety of raw material feeding devices are offered. Most commonly used feeders are vibratory and augers. Auger sizes range from 2” to 6” with a variety of auger flight configurations. Vibratory feeders provide a wide variety of size and rates to fit most applications.

Bulk Bag Unloading & Weighing Systems

Sterling offers a full line of Bulk Bag Unloading & Weighing Systems that incorporate many of the same designs as the modular weighing system but support the use of bulk bags and totes.

Customized solutions are provided for filling the supply bins such as drum or tote tippers, mechanical or pneumatic conveying. Sterling offers many scaling solutions including Gain-In-Weight & Loss-In-Weight (Continuous or Batch).
