Optimum performance in feeding pellets and free-flowing granules is said to be achieved with a new weigh feeder that offers pulsation-less flow over a wide feed range.
Optimum performance in feeding pellets and free-flowing granules is said to be achieved with a new weigh feeder that offers pulsation-less flow over a wide feed range. The ScrewDisc loss-in-weight feeder from Brabender Technologie, Mississauga, Ont., has a bottom-driven vertical screw mounted on a rotating disc and extending up through the conical discharge of a polyurethane elastomeric insert in the hopper. The screw reportedly feeds pellet-by-pellet onto the rotating disc. The system is said to offer quick recipe changeover.
