Acrison Inc. now offers an enhanced version of its Model 905-14 feeder that is specifically designed to meter “strand-type” materials that contain small amounts of moisture, such as fiberglass, in lengths ranging from 0.4 to 0.75 in.
An integral, specially designed 5-cu-ft supply hopper ensures reliable product flow into a uniquely configured distribution trough and onto a slow-moving metering/conveyor belt where two pile depth control and leveling mechanisms produce a consistent depth and width of material on the belt. Both the metering/conveyor belt and the two leveling mechanisms operate independently in a proportional relationship to each other that is powered by heavy-duty variable speed gearmotors. In addition, a rotating dispersing mechanism, operating at the discharge end of the belt, produces a uniform flow of material off of the belt. The output feed rate is controlled by the speed of the belt.
Gravimetric metering is obtained by utilizing the Model 905-18 feeder as the metering mechanism of an Acrison Model 402 ‘weight-loss’ weighing system.
The entire feeder assembly is manufactured in 304 stainless steel, including the feeder’s supply hopper. The feeder is completely self-emptying, easy to clean, requires minimal maintenance, and is virtually silent when operating. Controls are furnished in a NEMA 12 enclosure.
