A new approach to loading a hopper-mounted gravimetric feeder is said to improve accuracy so molders and extruders can save on colors and additives. MGF Series feeders from Maguire Products, Inc., Aston, Pa., have a new venturi loading device that refills the feeder hopper only when the contents fall to 10% of hopper capacity. In this way, the loss-in-weight measuring sees no distortion from constant additions of new material. Instead, one refill can last for hours. MGF units for up to 35 lb/hr cost no more than a volumetric feeder. (888) 459-2412 • www.maguire.com
