Micro Cone Feeder

May 13, 2008
The Micro Cone Feeder features a screwless feeding mechanism that accurately doses free-flowing color, master batch, or additives into a blending system or directly into the process screw of an extruder. Utilizing a simple induced-flow rotating tube/cone, the unit doses down to a few granules at a time, with a feed-rate range of 0.007 to 0.07 cu ft/hr. With the use of an extension tip, the feeder can feed even lower. The minimum dispersive rate is approximately two pellets per second. With no pockets or screws, the design is simple, providing ease of use and almost zero maintenance. The feeder housing swings open for fast material change. There are no areas for the product to trap, making cleaning easy.
