Acrison, Inc., an innovative global leader in dry solids metering and handling technologies for nearly 60 years, offers their Model 405-BDF-1 “Weight-Loss” Weigh Feeder with a time-proven Model BDF-1 Metering Mechanism. This extremely versatile metering mechanism combines a flow-inducing dual auger/agitator mechanism with a centrally positioned metering auger that operates at proportional but dissimilar speeds to produce superior metering performance.
The robustly built Model 405-BDF-1 features a compact footprint measuring 22×32 inches along with a technologically advanced, highly durable dynamic weighing system that is permanently calibrated and adjustment-free. Acrison’s Ratiometric Digital Weight Resolver instantaneously generates an unamplified, non-integrated, high resolution “real-time” weight signal (no signal lag) for use by one of Acrison’s various available multiprocessor controllers for precise feed rate control. The entire weighing system of the feeder is guaranteed, along with its associated electronics for five years. Feed rates range from several pounds upwards to about 500 lbs./hr. (based on product weighing 40 lbs./cu. ft., with continuous metering accuracies ranging between +/- 0.25 to 1 percent or better (error) at two sigma, based on a given number of consecutive one minute sample weighments. Cost of ownership is the lowest in the industry.
