Quick-Change Feeder

August 12, 2009
The T35/S60 Quick Change feeder is designed for applications requiring fast cleaning with maximum possible material handling and change-over flexibility. This unit is available in volumetric or loss-in-weight configurations. The single screw feeding elements handling free flowing powders, granules, pellets, and other non-flooding materials, while the twin screw elements control floodable powders and more difficult sticky or hard-to-flow materials. This feeder is now available with ActiFlow, a new patented material flow aid that prevents bridging or rat-holing of cohesive bulk materials in hoppers. ActiFlow is a non-product contact device, consisting of a patent-pending vibratory drive and intelligent control unit. It eliminates the need for mechanical agitators with secondary motors and gearboxes, or flexible side wall agitation devices and aeration pads.
