Twin-Screw Feeder

May 13, 2008
The Model TSF twin-screw feeder is designed for precise batching and weighing applications. The feeder’s dual-helix design combines fast, high-volume filling with accurate dribble flow at the end of the cycle. Its compact design is ideal when limited space prohibits multiple individual screw units. Two helixes—1½ and 4 in. in diameter—are mounted on an 18 × 22–in. hopper. They are rated at 17 cu ft and 283 cu ft per hour, respectively, at maximum rpm with 100% efficient conveyable product and no slippage. The unit is good for batching to weigh hoppers, low-loss-in-weight scale-monitored flow, low-loss-of-weight batch applications with scales, drum and pail packout lines, and recipe-type batching by multiple computer-controlled units. Several options are available.
