The food and chemical industries are well known for their exacting requirements for mixing, batching and blending materials. The consistency of the batch will ultimately determine the quality and consistency of their product. Load cells and digital weight controllers (also referred to as process controllers) play a critical role in this. Imagine trying to make a recipe in your kitchen with your eyes closed. You would have no way of knowing how much of each ingredient you were putting into your mixing bowl. Trying to do a batch process without precision load cells would be the same thing.
