Process equipment manufacturer Gericke USA unveils the Feedos S line of bulk material feeding systems. Developed to deliver highly accurate dosing in a hygienic, compact design, the Feedos S feeders feature a proprietary rectangular helix design that promotes constant product flow from the hopper to the feeding tool for uniform dispensing to mixing and other secondary processes. The novel configuration also ensures complete discharge with minimal residue and disassembles in seconds without reaching into the chamber for safe, fast, easy cleaning.
The Feedos S automatically meters free-flowing and flow-resistant granular and powdered materials at high feed rates to nearly 20 cubic feet per hour operating in a choice of volumetric or gravimetric feeding modes. For sanitary processing, the bulk feeding system is manufactured in polished stainless steel as standard in product contact areas with hygienic, dust-tight seals connecting upstream and downstream equipment. Atex-certified versions for hazardous environments are offered as options.
