The patented Bulk Solids Pump (BSP) feeder line has been specifically designed and engineered to provide gentle, precise feeding of free-flowing pellets, granules, flakes, and friable materials. BSP feeders do not use the usual screws/augers, belts, or vibratory trays to convey the material. They utilize positive displacement action to feed free-flowing materials with high accuracy, offering uniform discharge, consistent volume, and gentle handling. The BSP feeders have vertical rotating discs that create feeding ducts. Material moves smoothly from storage hopper to discharge outlet through a “product lock-up zone,” achieving true linear mass flow. With no pockets or screws and only one moving part, these compact feeders are cleaned in seconds, making them ideal for applications with frequent material changes.
