Dry Material Feeder for Hygienic Processes

Dry Material Feeder for Hygienic Processes
The Schenck Process PureFeed® AP-300 feeder was designed specifically for pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and other hygienic processes.

Unique customer-driven features include quick and easy disassembly, a dual-arm agitation system for maximizing material handling versatility, and an FDA compliant EPDM feed hopper that is disposable and recyclable. That means simpler, shorter cleaning cycles and virtually, no chance of cross-contamination when moving from one material to another. 316L stainless steel is used for most of the feeder parts including the 4, 12, and 36-liter extension hoppers and covers. 32 microinch Ra finishes are standard on all contact surfaces with lower Ra’s available upon request. Finally, the number of feeder pieces is kept to a minimum, and connections are made using sanitary quick-release clamps so disassembly, cleaning, and reassembly are quick and easy.

The PureFeed® AP-300 is available in volumetric and gravimetric configurations for applications with feed rates from 0.5 to approximately 150 Kg/hour. Jet milling, continuous blending, medical-grade plastics compounding, packaging, coating, and ingredient weighing are just a few examples of applications the PureFeed® AP-300 can satisfy.
