This food-grade volumetric screw feeder/seasoner was engineered for applications that require a reliable, repeatable method for dosing seasoning drums and tumble coaters.

Engineered for an accurate +/-1% loss and weight metered feed, the PosiPortion volumetric screw feeder is specifically designed for seasoning drums or tumble coaters for snack food and candy manufacturers. Precision dosing is measured by keeping the screw full and measuring the volume of material in the feeder coupled with turn speed, pitch of flights, and turning time.

The unit is available in several flow ranges. A long throat design maximizes natural in-flow allowing for easy handling of difficult ingredients and compounds. Proper ingredient flow is maintained with the steep side walls on the flexible hopper and large corner radii. Featuring a FDA hopper design and food-grade finishes on all contact surface including the hopper interior, screw, and nozzle. Rotated 45 degrees, the feeder also reduces the number of surfaces that would be prone to holding water. Quick coupled components allow for easy disassembly and cleaning of components. Spare hoppers, screws, and nozzles are available for quick material change over with minimal downtime.

The volumetric feeder/seasoner is available with optional controls package. Controls are specified per application allowing for high/low hopper sensors, timer for batching by volume, and operator adjustable speed control. Other components, capacity ranges, and design options available upon request.
