Plastics Feeder

November 9, 2009
The high feed rate Model 6000 ProFlex C feeder was designed specifically for extruder manufacturers and compounders providing maximum versatility in a cost-efficient package that’s easy to operate, reconfigure, clean, and service with feed rates up to 212 cu ft/hr. The AC drive motor assembly and material discharge positions can be exchanged, optimizing the feeder’s ability to accommodate different mounting and clustering requirements for up to eight feeders. Additionally, the gravimetric unit comes equipped with an angular cut discharge nozzle improving accuracies by reducing pulsation at low speeds. The unit offers an asymmetric flexible PUR (polyurethane) feed-hopper and an eight-point external agitation system that can be adjusted without influencing screw speed. Servicing the feeder can be done from two different sides.
