The Standard in Process
The Ozark CD200 fully automatic gravimetric chemical dosing system enables the user to control the dispensing of a number of products, completely automatically. Weighing of between 1 and 48 components in any formula is possible, since the unit is available with up to 48 dispense valves.
is computer controlled, utilising an industry standard, force-compensated
stainless steel scale. Components are individually dispensed into the
receiving mixing tank, which is mounted on the scale. On completion of
each dispense the mixer is programmed to ensure the thorough incorporation
of the dispensed chemicals. If the system is configured with multiple
outlets to individual process stations the correct delivery line is then
selected and the built-in pump transfers the formula to the process. Once
dispensing, mixing and product transfer is complete, washing of the valve
outlets, the mixing tank and the pipework takes place prior to the next
formula being weighed.
Recirculation can be incorporated into the system for products that have a tendency to settle during storage. Products can be fed to the system from bulk tanks, IBCs or drums, or direct from suppliers' containers.

Throughput of the system will vary, dependent upon site configuration and the nature of the products to be dispensed, but typical throughput for a full cycle (empty-weigh-discharge) for 6 components is 5 minutes, with an accuracy for chemicals of 5 grams. Colour accuracy is, typically, better than 1g.
A high-accuracy version of the dosing system, dispensing to an accuracy of better than 1g, is available for processes incorporating high value or critical components.
The CD200 system can be supplied with a modem to enable on-line support and system upgrades as required.
