Abstract

The article presents a typical structural scheme and physical model of weight bather for dry products regarded as an elastic system with one degree of freedom, operating together with the attached variable mass body. Dynamic mathematical model of the batcher has been developed. The model describes weight batcher's performance at its five key working stages: filling with the product at increased productivity, accurate low–rate top–up filling, filling suspension (pause before discharge), product discharge and discharge suspension (pause after discharge). Mathematical model allows for theoretical investigation of weight bather performance throughout its entire working cycle as well as analysis of its structural and design features.
