Process Equipment Manufacturer Unveils Clean-In-Place Bulk Material Feeder
21 Jul 2023  |
Somerset, NJ: Process equipment manufacturer Gericke USA, Somerset, NJ, has unveiled a bulk material feeder suitable for installation in processing lines that require Clean-In-Place for cleaning process equipment. Developed for food, dairy, nutrition, pharmaceutical, and other sanitary operations, the Feedos® S-H/P CIP integrates a series of spray nozzles within the hopper and downspout in a 360-degree spray pattern to automatically remove material from inside the feeder and achieve a predetermined level of sanitization. The stainless steel construction accommodates virtually any type of detergent, disinfectant, or chemical cleaning agent, as well as hot water and steam.

The Clean-In-Place feeder also features a novel sealing design that replaces stuffing boxes on the drive shafts with proprietary lip seals at the feeding tool and intromitter. Connections remain tight during both operation and cleaning to prevent leakage, even in critical interfaces with moving parts.

The CIP feeder expands the Feedos S line of feeders, which also includes standard, hygienic, and pharmaceutical models to suit virtually any process feeding application. The feeders meter and dose a wide range of flow-resistant and free-flowing powders, granules, flakes, and other dry, bulk materials, automatically and with high accuracy. Testing is offered in the company’s New Jersey test laboratory.
