In order to automate accurate feeding of materials into the extruders and eliminate the manual handling of ingredients, the AccuRate dry material feeder is used. The feeder handles a wide variety of fine powders, flakes, granules, chips and pellets. Instead of using traditional internal stirring devices to keep materials moving, the AccuRate dry material feeder uses a Tuf-Flex vinyl hopper. This flexible hopper is agitated on the exterior by two alternating paddles. The paddle gently mixes the materials down into the metering screw creating a more uniform bulk density. The helical flights are filled uniformly, resulting in excellent volumetric accuracy. This feeder handles wide range of volumetric or gravimetric feeding applications that have been used in many major industries – chemicals, plastics, food, etc.
