Enhanced Acrison Model 905-18 Volumetric Feeder Specifically Designed to Meter “Strand-Type” Materials Including Products that Contain Small Amounts of Moisture

Press release date: Sep 15, 2017

Acrison, Inc., an innovative global leader in dry solids metering and handling technologies for over 50 years, now offers an enhanced version of the 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 inches.

An integral, specially designed 5 cubic foot 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, very easy to clean, requires minimal maintenance, and is virtually silent when operating. Controls are furnished in a NEMA 12 enclosure.
