Volumetric Screw Feeders Reduce Downtime
IPM Systems’ Barracuda volumetric screw feeders

IPM Systems’ Barracuda volumetric screw feeders incorporate advanced features to ensure less downtime and optimized material handling. The Barracuda is able to handle a variety of powders, pellets, flakes, and chips in a small footprint, providing a versatile solution for feeding products.

Each feeder utilizes a direct-drive motor and gearbox assembly for fewer moving parts (there are no pulleys, chains, or belts), resulting in reduced mean time between failures. This generates cost savings through increased feed rate accuracy. The unintimidating feeder design allows the tooling (auger and spout) to be removed with the simple turn of a wrench.

The overwind auger option conditions the material to prevent feed issues. A variety of options and configurations on the Barracuda provides a process-friendly auger feeder and integrates with other IPM System components as a complete solution.
