Sanitary Feeder-Conveyor

February 25, 2008
This combination feeder-conveyor for free-flowing and non-free-flowing bulk dairy products, pharmaceutical products, and other contamination-sensitive materials meets 3-A sanitary standards. A coupling positioned beyond the point at which material exits the discharge spout eliminates the potential of contamination while allowing quick disconnection of the screw from the motor drive for wash-down. The screw is the only moving part that contacts material. The unit simultaneously meters and elevates bulk materials, potentially eliminating the need for a separate feeder and conveyor, while reducing the clearance typically required above the receiving vessel for a dedicated feeder. Mobile and high-capacity units are also available.
