Acrison Inc. -

Able to feed 0.4- to 0.75-in.-long, strand-type materials that contain small amounts of moisture, the Acrison Model 905-18 304 stainless steel volumetric feeder has a 5-cu.-ft. supply hopper with a distribution trough that empties onto a slow-moving metering/conveyor belt with 2 pile depth control and leveling mechanisms. A proportional relationship between the metering/conveyor belt and the 2 leveling mechanisms allows them to operate independently. A rotating dispersing mechanism operating at the discharge end of the belt produces a uniform flow of material off the belt.
