A pneumatically actuated slide gate valve controls material discharge from the drum into the hopper to ensure uninterrupted supply to the volumetric feeder. Automated controlling of the volumetric feeder's variable frequency drive gearmotor and pneumatically actuated diverter valve ensures properly blended material is supplied at the correct volume to the specified downstream packaging operation.
The skin material is fed into the first port from a standard hopper or volumetric feeder. The core material enters via the second port and is metered into the system by an auger feeder with speed control.
Dry powder is then delivered via vacuum transfer and metered into the tank using a volumetric feeder. The raw materials formulation is monitored using load cells mounted beneath the pre-mix tank.
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 0.0012 Cubic Feet per hour.
The PMMA was always fed into extruder's primary feed port (hopper) through the single screw volumetric feeder for all formulations.
The flexible plug-in adapter provides fast and simple connectivity to all major controllers used for conveyors, compressors, door openers, industrial fans and pumps, mixers, ovens, palletizing, stretch wrapping, tension control, and volumetric feeder control, just to name a few.
Acrison recommended its stainless steel 170 volumetric feeder, known as a Flavourapplicator, specifically designed for this type of food application.
A volumetric feeder supplies the alloy feedstock to the Thixomolder.
This is the most common volumetric feeder, and its material-discharge device is a screw that rotates at a constant speed to meter material at a predetermined volume-per-revolution discharge rate from the hopper to the process.
The AccuFeed vibrating volumetric feeder is for low-cost precision feeding of water and wastewater treatment chemicals.
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.
The Model BDF-1.5-2 Volumetric Feeder incorporates two independently driven metering augers with a dual agitator flow-inducing mechanism to provide versatile metering and hoppering capabilities over a wide feed range.
