Bulk Solids Pump Feeders

November 8, 2010
K-Tron Process GroupThe patented Bulk Solids Pump (BSP) feeder line was specifically designed and engineered to provide gentle, precise feeding of free-flowing pellets, granules, flakes, and friable materials. BSP feeders do not use screws/augers, belts, or vibratory trays to convey materials. They utilize a principal known as “lock up” to provide true positive displacement action and feeds free flowing material with astounding accuracy. They offer uniform discharge, consistent true linear volumetric flow, and gentle handling. BSP feeders have vertical rotating discs that create the product “lock-up” zone, conveying the material smoothly from storage hopper to discharge outlet, producing excellent linearity and repeatability. With no pockets or screws and only one moving part, the compact feeder is cleaned in seconds, making it ideal for applications with frequent material changes.
