A pneumatically actuated slide gate valve controls material discharge from the drum into the hopper to ensure uninterrupted supply to the volumetric feeder.
The skin material is fed into the first port from a standard hopper or volumetric feeder.
Dry powder is then delivered via vacuum transfer and metered into the tank using a volumetric feeder.
The Model 170-MI-5 Volumetric Feeder has been specifically designed to accurately and reliably meter a wide range of dry solid ingredients at feed rates as low b as 0.
The PMMA was always fed into extruder's primary feed port (hopper) through the single screw volumetric feeder for all formulations.
The extruder based particle injection system relies upon a volumetric feeder and is unaffected by well pressure which will substantially improve performance and broaden the operating range.
Acrison recommended its stainless steel 170 volumetric feeder, known as a Flavourapplicator, specifically designed for this type of food application.
Let's look at some of the most common material characteristics that affect volumetric feeder performance:
After looking at a range of feeder manufacturers, Cadbury chose Acrison's 105 volumetric feeder with its double concentric auger metering mechanism, which has been shown to minimise bulk density variations by taking conditioned material from the centre of the feed chamber.
