The FlexWall Plus feeder accurately meters virtually all bulk ingredients and fibers. The multi-angled, trapezoid-shaped polyurethane hopper combined with angular paddle movement, ensures the flow through the feeder is uniform (true mass flow) and fills the screw efficiently. It promotes highly accurate feed rates and batching performance. Since the feeder has a vertical walled extension hopper and reduced height due to large inlet to polyurethane FlexWall screw trough, there is no need for agitation in extension hopper. Due to the trapezoid shape, the feeders form a compact grouping of six feeders around a common discharge point. The compact trapezoid footprint is identical to both the volumetric and gravimetric feeder with either a single high-performance DigiMass II or analog load cell. Other features include an external AC motor for easy maintenance. Options include: swivel mount for rear screw removal; fixed mount for screw removal from the front; explosion proof and lightweight.
