Designed with circular flat bottom feed chambers, the Models 170-1-2 and 170-2-2 volumetric feeders feature a specially configured, slowly rotating horizontal agitator that operates at a constant or variable speed to ensure the feeders’ two variable speed metering augers are filled with consistent, “conditioned” product, while simultaneously aiding downward flow of bulk material from the integral supply hopper into the feed chamber.

Proper sizing of the two independently driven metering augers vs. use of a single auger with a limited feed range, enables a wide feed range (over 130:2) with the Model 170-1-2 capable of a maximum throughput of 84 cu ft/hr and the Model 170-2-2 160 cu ft/hr. A discharge port, located in the flat bottom feed chamber, facilitates self-emptying in both models.
