Open-Frame Weighbelt Feeder for Sanitary Processes

March 1, 2012

Designed specifically for sanitary processes, the DEA open-frame weigh belt feeder features tool-less, rapid belt removal for frequent cleaning cycles, an IP69K stainless steel load cell manufactured to withstand high pressure spray, a shaft-mounted, wash-down drive system for simple power transmission, and product contact surfaces with 316 stainless steel. The feeder provides weight controlled feeding, weight indication, and totalization for fragile materials like cereals, snack foods, kibble, fruits, and pasta. Like other Schenck AccuRate DEA weighbelt feeders, the sanitary open frame is offered in models with 12- and 24-in. belt widths, BIC (belt weight influence compensation), and accuracies of ±0.25% to 1% of set rate sigma. A v-profile belt guide provides reliable tracking and minimal hardware requirements, while a gravity-assist head pulley scraper and an internal plow automatically clean both sides of the belt. Feed rates up to 2660 cu ft/hr are achievable.
