Volumetric Feeder

September 8, 2009
The redesigned MetaTech feeder provides simple, economical, and reliable feeding of dry bulk materials. The new design features only two moving parts (drive and screw) to ensure years of reliable performance with minimal process downtime and maintenance expense. The feeder also features a compact, space-saving design, low maintenance o-ring sealed inline direct drive, new Delrin bushing, and an agitator/conditioner screw to maintain consistent product density and completely fill the feed screw for highly accurate (±1 to 1 1/2%) feeding. Interchangeable screw/tube combinations are available in ½- to 6-in. sizes and permit feed rates from 0.05 to 550 cu ft/hr. The feeder is also available in a wide range of models including space-saving mini, sanitary, and combination feeder/conveyor units.
