Precise Twin-Screw Feeder
Designed for precise batching and weighing applications.
The Model TSF twin-screw feeder from Best Process Solutions, Brunswick, Ohio, is designed for precise batching and weighing applications. The feeder’s dual-helix design combines fast, high-volume filling with accurate dribble flow at the end of the cycle. Its compact design is ideal when limited space prohibits multiple individual screw units.
Two helixes—1½ in. and 4 in. diam.—are mounted on an 18 in. x 22 in. hopper. They are rated at 17 ft3/hr and 283 ft3/hr, respectively, at maximum rpm with 100%-efficient conveyable product and no slippage.
The TSF is reportedly ideal for batching to weigh-hoppers; low loss-in-weight scale-monitored flow; low loss-of-weight batch applications with scales; drum and pail packout lines; and recipe-type batching by multiple computer-controlled units. Many options are available.
Visitors to the recent NPE 2009 show in Chicago were looking for materials handling equipment that could do more than dry, blend, or convey resins. It had to do those things while saving energy, providing faster and easier maintenance, speeding product changeovers, reducing labor cost, minimizing waste, and providing better value for money. The new products cited below addressed those needs and more.
Non-uniform thickness in extruded sheet is a serious problem.
