Volumetric Feeders

May 10, 2010
For volumetric dry material feeding applications, Tuf-Flex series feeders handle a wide variety of fine powders, flakes, granules, chips, and pellets. Designed with a unique form of agitation, the feeders are manufactured with a Tuf-Flex vinyl hopper that is agitated on the exterior by two alternating paddles. The paddle action gently massages the material down into the metering screw, eliminating ratholing and bridging while conditioning material into a consistent bulk density. The helix flights are filled uniformly, resulting in high accuracy. The feeders are offered in model sizes accommodating feed rates from .000017 to 280 cu ft/hr.
