Feeder Valve & Micro Dosing System

Available on request


  1. Feeding & WeighingFeeding & Weighing

Dinnissen's Feeder Valve can be used in many applications, as it can process a wide range of quantities. The Feeder Valve is a butterfly valve, powered by a single drive unit. Thanks to its compact installation height, this feeder valve can easily be incorporated into a new or existing setup. The compact design and simple construction minimize product residue being left behind, allowing quick and easy cleaning of the installation. A Feeder Valve is always connected to a weighing system. Weight decrease or increase shows how much product is passing through the Feeder Valve at what speed. On that basis, you can determine how it should be adjusted.

  • Production capacity between a few kilograms and dozens of tons per hour
  • Simple, easy-to-clean construction
  • Accurate dosing through combination with load cells

Accurate to the gram

Production requirements in the powder industry are becoming increasingly strict. Whereas initially, a dosing accuracy of 100 grams was sufficient for processing bulk materials, the demand came for a much more accurate dosing system. In response to this demand, our engineering department has developed a Micro Dosing System with an accuracy of 1 gram. The Feeder Valve can be used in a batch weighing application as well as in a continuous weighing application. The system uses hardly any energy, has short dosing times, and is applicable in many sectors. The Dinnissen Feeder Valve has been validated by leading producers of milk powder, cocoa powder, creamers, sugars, whey powders, lactose, premixes, and baby food.

  • Very high accuracy, up to the gram
  • Suitable for both batch and continuous weighing systems
  • Energy efficient
  • Short dosing times
  • Validated system

Micro Dosing System

Because the Feeder Valve is coupled to weighing cells before the Feeder Valve (loss-in-weight) or to weighing cells after the Feeder Valve (gain-in-weight), the system can accurately regulate very small quantities in addition to large quantities. How the Feeder Valve is tuned, is matched to the amount of product allowed to flow through. This is a very effective system for adding critical components within a mixing process.

In this video, we show you how our Micro Dosing System works. 

Feeder valve overview

Key features, options, and versions

The production capacity of the Feeder Valve can be set from a few kilograms to tens of tons per hour. Depending on the required accuracy, the Feeder Valve can be supplied as a Micro Dosing System with an accuracy of up to one gram. The Feeder Valve consists of a dosing element and one drive unit, making it a very compact system. As the dosing system is easy to clean, the Feeder Valve can be used in many sectors and can process many different substances.

How it works

The Feeder Valve is a powered butterfly valve that allows exactly the desired amount of product to pass through. The feeder valve can be connected to a tube through which the product passes.  Once the amount of product to be passed through is registered, this can be added accurately to the gram. The system can be combined with a batch weighing application where one batch is composed each time but can also be applied in a continuous process.
