Powder Feeder is Designed for Pharmaceutical and Nutraceutical Processes
The PureFeed® A feeder was designed specifically for pharmaceutical and nutraceutical processes to feed mills, mixers, extruders and compounders.

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. The PureFeed® AP-300 is available in volumetric and gravimetric configurations with feed rates from 500 g/hour to approximately 150 kg/hour. 

Given the external non-intrusive agitation of its flexible hopper, the PureFeed® A discharges the product gently, ensuring optimum bulk material flow. The penetration depth and frequency of the external agitation can be conveniently set to product-specific requirements.

The screw feeder is available in various configurations, which can be easily adjusted to the application and also handle challenging feeding tasks. Feed hoppers of various sizes are available as well as helix and nozzle auger extensions.
