In this paper, a mathematical simulation of the closed-loop control of a flow-through flow meter-metering device with two installed load cells on the loading side of the material is presented. The presented model was tested on the boundary conditions and all the dependencies obtained were checked for adequacy. The obtained data show that the determination of the optimal speed of conveyor belt allows to increase the accuracy of dosage of bulk material.
