Scale feeder

August 2, 2007


The FMC FoodTech proportional gate system separates product from the main product stream, continuously distributing regulated quantities to each scale feeder to eliminate gaps and lags in product flow. Continuous adjustment can be made to product flow based on scale demand by adjusting scale feeder speed and the proportional V-shaped gate opening. The meter maintains uniform product depth, reducing over- and under-seasoning of product.
