Loss-in-Weight Screw Feeder
The Sanitary PF-LC-S is a large capacity loss-in-weight screw feeder designed for accurate and uniform feeding of a wide range of materials, from free flowing to very fine cohesive powders. Made from high-quality stainless steel, the unit is corrosive-resistant and appropriate for the processing of food products, such as pet food, cereals, and chips. It was developed for applications that require fast, easy, and thorough cleaning out of materials to prevent spoiling and cross-contamination. The feeder can be completely disassembled, without the use of tools, in less than one minute. The rugged construction promises years of trouble-free operation. The “U-trough” feed chamber with an independently driven agitator provides precise delivery of material to the feed screw. It also eliminates material build-up, controls material aeration, and delivers a steady constant flow of material. Feeder “dead load” is mass-counterbalanced so that only material weight (live load) is measured.
