Working Principle

The blade prevents powder from vaulting inside the hopper or bag-tipping unit. It also allows constant and uniform density when feeding the dosing screw.

Prior to tip the bag, the operator opens the front door. The integrated reverse jet filter and the fan start automatically.

Once the tipping process is finished, the front door has to be closed. The filter and the fan stop automatically. The product is transferred from the inlet to the outlet of the tube by an Archimedes screw. This screw is actuated by a direct coupling gear motor. The gear motor is connected to a frequency inverter to enable adjustment of the speed for fine dosing.

That motor is of the synchronous type, which ensures a constant and accurate speed between 0 to 146 rpm, despite potential torque variations.

A small screw pitch regulates the flow and ensures accurate dosing. Thanks to the pressurized bearings concept, no powder can enter the bearings.
