Composite Feeder Offers Loss-In Weight Accuracy

Vibra Screw, Inc., a leading manufacturer of equipment and systems for precision processing of dry bulk materials, has announced availability of their new AccuFeed plastic-bodied loss-in-weight feeder.

Designed to minimize loss of accuracy through incorporation of controlled vibration during the refill cycle, the AccuFeed system improves accuracy in gravimetric mode where the weight signal is far more stable than in other systems.

Available in screw diameters from 1"-6" and capacities from 2.8 to over 600 cu.ft./hr, the units are constructed of food grade polyethylene which is inert and noncorrosive. The feeder provides versatility in hopper selection, adapts easily to a wide variety of storage/discharge systems, and its sanitary design allows easy cleaning between material changes.

AccuFeed is also available off-the-shelf at a price significantly lower than comparable steel loss-in-weight feeders and is easily adapted to a broad range of applications through simple addition of a secondary trough conditioning screw for non free-flowing materials. User-friendly, microprocessor-based controls feature a membrane keyboard and easy-to-read display that distinguishes actual weight from plant electronic noise.

Vibra Screw introduced the concept of controlled vibration to condition and drive bulk materials into and through a process more than 40 years ago. Today they manufacture the broadest line of equipment incorporating this feature including Bin Activators, Bulk Bag Unloaders, Volumetric Screw and Belt Feeders, and all types of Gravimetric Feeders, Blenders and Controls.
