volumetric feeders acrison incorporatedAcrison’s ruggedly built Models 170-1-2 and 170-2-2 volumetric feeders incorporate a highly versatile metering mechanism featuring two independently driven metering augers for the accurate and reliable feeding of a diverse variety of dry solid ingredients over a wide feed range. The feeders’ architecture eliminates the undesirable requirement to change the size of the feeder’s metering auger whenever a feed range is required that cannot be effectively achieved by a single size auger. By incorporating two separate metering augers sized accordingly, a wide feed range is possible. Additionally, for batching applications, these feeders are able to provide both high and low feed outputs (rapid feed/dribble feed) to help facilitate the highest degree of batch accuracy. The feeders also feature a unique self-emptying design incorporating a discharge port to enable rapid and complete emptying.
