Vibra Screw Sanitary AccuFeed™ Composite Feeder Features Loss-in-Weight Accuracy

16 Sep 2021  |
Vibra Screw AccuFeedTM Composite Feeder Features Loss-in-Weight Accuracy Vibra Screw, Inc., a leader in solids processing and solids handling solutions, offers AccuFeed Loss-In-Weight Feeders that provide accuracies to ± 1/4% in gravimetric mode, where the weight signal is far more stable than in other systems.

Designed to maximize accuracy through controlled vibration during the refill cycle, the Vibra Screw AccuFeed plastic-bodied Loss-in-Weight Feeder is available in screw diameters from 1/2” – 6” and capacities from 0.24 to over 600 cu.ft./hour. Contact materials are USDA and FDA-approved polyethylene and stainless steel for sanitary compliance. The unit is ideal for food processors or anywhere that frequent, thorough cleaning is required.

The Feeder offers versatility in hopper selection, adapts easily to a wide variety of storage/discharge systems, and affords easy cleaning between material changes. AccuFeedTM is also available off-the-shelf at a price significantly lower than comparable steel loss-in-weight feeders, and is easily adapted to a broad range of applications by the simple addition of a secondary trough conditioning screw for non-free-flowing materials.

User-friendly, microprocessor-based controls feature a membrane keyboard and easy-to-read display that distinguishes actual weight from plant electronic noise. As with all Vibra Screw equipment, the AccuFeedTM Loss-In-Weight Feeders are unconditionally guaranteed to perform in the service for which they are sold. With a staff of experienced and talented engineers, technicians and crafts people, Vibra Screw manufactures high-quality equipment to store, discharge, meter, convey, size and blend solid materials.
