3-A Sanitary Feeder-Conveyor

August 12, 2008
This combination feeder-conveyor for free-flowing and non-free-flowing bulk dairy products, pharmaceutical products, and other contamination-sensitive materials meets 3-A sanitary standards. A coupling positioned beyond the point at which material exits the discharge spout eliminates the potential of contamination while allowing quick disconnection of the screw from the motor drive for wash down. The screw is the only moving part contacting material. The unit simultaneously meters and elevates bulk materials, potentially eliminating the need for a separate feeder and conveyor, while reducing the clearance typically required above the receiving vessel for a dedicated feeder. Mobile and high-capacity units are also available.
