Micro Cone Feeder

February 26, 2008
Untitled Document The Micro Cone low-rate feeder features a screwless feeding mechanism to accurately dose free-flowing color, Masterbatch, or additives into a blending system or directly into the process screw of an extruder. Utilizing a simple induced-flow rotating tube or cone, the feeder is designed to dose 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 at an even lower rate. The minimum dispersive rate is >2 pellets per second. With no pockets or screws, the design is simple, providing ease of use and almost zero maintenance.
