Weighing systems are important for ceramic manufacturers to ensure accurate measurement of raw materials, precise formulation of ceramic mixtures, and quality control of finished products. Ceramics production involves various stages that require precise weighing for consistent product quality.
Here’s how weighing systems are used in the ceramic manufacturing industry:
Raw Material Weighing and Mixing. Ceramic production begins with accurately measuring and mixing raw materials to achieve the desired composition. These systems accurately measure and dispense various raw materials to create consistent ceramic mixtures.
Slip and Glaze Preparation. In slip casting and glazing processes, precise measurements of materials are crucial. These systems measure and dispense liquid materials such as slips and glazes for accurate formulations.
Tank weighing systems are commonly used in ceramic manufacturing to accurately measure the weight of liquids, such as waterglass (sodium silicate), stored in tanks or vessels. Waterglass is often used as a binder in ceramics and other industries, and precise measurement is crucial for consistent product quality and process control.
Loss-in-weight systems are commonly used in ceramic manufacturing to accurately control the dispensing of various materials, such as powders, additives, and liquids, during the production process. These systems are particularly useful when precise measurement and dosing are essential to maintain consistent product quality. It is commonly used for accurate batch dosing in ceramic formulation.
Accurate measurement of incoming material from supplier for fair trading. Weighbridges are used to measure large quantities of material for trading purposes and make sure the quality control of bulk material.
