Press Release Summary:
The Models 170-1-2 and 170-2-2 Dry Solids Volumetric Feeders come with circular flat bottom feed chambers. The horizontal agitator operates at constant or variable speed to ensure feeder's two variable speed metering augers are filled completely with conditioned product. The Models 170-1-2 and 170-2-2 are capable of delivering a maximum throughput of 84 cu.ft./hr. and 160 cu.ft./hr respectively. The agitator aids in downward flow of bulk material from 170's integral supply hopper into the feed chamber.
Original Press Release:
Specially Configured, Slowly Rotating Horizontal Agitator Ensures the Two Metering Augers of the Model 170 Dry Solids Volumetric Feeders are Completely Filled with Conditioned Product
Acrison, Inc., an innovative global leader in dry solids metering and handling technologies for over 50 years, has announced availability of the new Models 170-1-2 and 170-2-2 Dry Solids Volumetric Feeders.
The Models 170-1-2 and 170-2-2 are designed with circular flat bottom feed chambers and feature a specially configured, slowly rotating horizontal agitator that operates at a constant or variable speed to ensure the feeder's two variable speed metering augers are completely filled with consistent, "conditioned" product while simultaneously aiding downward flow of bulk material from the 170's integral supply hopper into the feed chamber.
Proper sizing of two independently driven metering augers vs. use of a single auger with a limited feed range enables an extremely 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.
Both models are designed to self-empty via a unique discharge port located in the flat bottom feed chambers. In batching applications, use of a large metering auger allows high material feed output for the desired batch size, while use of a smaller metering auger provides a final dribble amount so the highest degree of batch accuracy can be achieved.
