Accu-Flow Hopper/Feeders combine the precision of the company’s standard series feeders with low-level surge storage capacity. For additional accuracy, a broad line of loss-in-weight hopper/feeders are also available.
Company applies the latest advances in volumetric and gravimetric feeding to its new PosiPortion feeders. A flexible wall design helps to assure that they are ideal for precision dosing, filling and continuous feeding. They handle free-flowing granules, pellets or stubborn powders.
Heavy-Duty Ultra Force Mechanical Feeders are available in 11 models with capacities to 2,500 tons per hour. The long stroke and low frequency of these rugged machines move high volumes of bulk material. Tray sizes up to 96 in. wide and 144 in. long are available. Special sizes can also be provided.
For volumetric feeding applications, the Tuf-Flex Series Feeders handle a wide variety of fine powders, flakes, granules, chips and pellets. Designed with a unique form of agitation, they are manufactured with a Tuf-Flex vinyl hopper that is agitated on the exterior by two alternating paddles.
Self-contained feeder and conveying system is ideal for conveying powders pneumatically over short distances with high accuracy. Typical flow rates are between .015 and 1.25 cu ft/hour. A venturi eductor entrains the powder into the conveying air stream.
The GT Turbine Agitator for agitator service in applications up to 600,000 gallons features an efficient, double reduction gear drive that delivers maximum mixing power with minimum energy consumption.
