Flexible Screw Conveyor meets 3-A sanitary standards.

Suited for use with contamination-sensitive materials, 3-A sanitary conveyor employs flexible inner screw as only moving part contacting material. Screw self-centers as it rotates, producing gentle rolling action that prevents separation of blended materials. Coupling design, positioned beyond point at which material exits discharge spout, minimizes potential for contamination. Standard and...

Batching/Blending System offers in-line operation.

Pneumatic batching system consists of bulk bag dischargers mounted on load cells that allow loss-of-weight batching. System controller starts and stops rotary airlock valve to weigh ingredients. Minor, pre-weighed ingredients are added at manual dumping station, and dilute-phase vacuum conveyor line terminates at filter receiver that accumulates batch, then discharges it through slide gate valve...

Material Handling & Storage

Weigh Batching System is designed for low headroom areas.

Weigh Batching System is comprised of 8 low profile, motor-driven, screw conveyors fed by roof-mounted storage vessels, with each group of 4 conveyors feeding either of 2 gain-in-weight hoppers. System controller starts and stops each conveyor to weigh ingredients in sequence, stopping material flow once accurate batch weight has been gained. Enclosed, dust-free conveyors can handle products...

Bulk Filling System features high-lift drum dumper.
Material Handling & Storage

Bulk Filling System features high-lift drum dumper.

Bulk Filling System transfers bulk solid materials from drums to machine's fill head dust-free, fills pails by weight, and verifies fill weight accuracy. Drums are loaded at floor level onto platen that lifts hydraulically to form dust-tight seal between drum lip and gasketed discharge cone. Entire drum carriage elevates hydraulically, then tips, causing discharge cone to mate with gasketted...
