Enhanced Volumetric Feeder

Acrison Inc. has specifically designed an enhanced version of its Model 905-18 feeder that meters "strand-type" materials that contain small amounts of moisture, such as fiberglass, in lengths ranging from 0.4 to 0.75 in.

Reliable product flow is ensured through an integral, specially designed 5-cu-ft supply hopper with a uniquely configured distribution trough that empties onto a slow-moving metering/conveyor belt with two pile depth control and leveling mechanisms to produce a consistent depth and width of material on the belt. A proportional relationship between the metering/conveyor belt and the two leveling mechanisms that allows them to operate independently, is driven by heavy-duty variable speed gearmotors. A rotating dispersing mechanism operating at the discharge end of the belt produces a uniform flow of material off of the belt, while output feed rate is controlled by the speed of the belt.

Use of the Model 905-18 feeder as the metering mechanism of an Acrison Model 402 "weight-loss" weighing system permits gravimetric metering. The entire feeder--including the supply hopper--is manufactured in 304 stainless steel, and the feeder is completely self-emptying, easy to clean, requires minimal maintenance, and is virtually silent during operation.
