Designed specifically for extruder manufacturers and compounders, the ProFlex C 500 feeder from Schenck-AccuRate packs maximum versatility into a very space and cost efficient package that’s easy to operate, reconfigure, clean, and service.
Flexibility is a key ingredient in the design of the ProFlex C. The AC drive motor assembly and material discharge positions can be exchanged, optimizing the feeders ability to accommodate different mounting and clustering requirements for up to eight feeders. Additionally, the ProFlex C supports both single and twin-screw configurations making the feeder adaptable to handle a variety of materials.
The ProFlex C features an asymmetric flexible EPDM feed-hopper and a six-point external agitation system that can be adjusted without influencing screw speed.
Servicing the feeder can be done from two different sides, which reduces space requirements while providing easy access to all critical components. Disassembly is done quickly and easily without the need for special tools.
An integrated, dual strain gauge load cell-based multi-point weighing system serves as the heart of the ProFlex C’s loss-in-weight metering capability. Used in conjunction with Schenck AccuRate’s DISOCONT LIW controller, the ProFlex C becomes a robust, reliable, high accuracy loss-in-weight feeding system capable of metering a very broad range of resins, colors, fillers, impact modifiers, and UV inhibitors at feed rates up to 18 cubic ft/hr.
