Dry ingredient applicator

March 29, 2003
A new dry ingredient applicator accurately dispenses a 36-in.-wide "curtain" of granular or powdered coatings at volumes from 300 to 2,700 lbs./min. Ingredients are dispensed by an electrically driven auger traveling through a perforated distributor tube. The discharge pattern from the tube and the flow rate can be easily changed using a vernier-type hole adjustment on the tube and a variable controller on the drive.
