SAPplicator Systems…
with Multi-Flight Auger Metering Mechanism


Acrison’s industry-leading SAPplicator Systems are specifically designed and engineered for the processing and precise feeding of SAP (super absorbent polymer) used in the manufacture of absorbent hygiene products, incontinence pads, etc., where the absorbent core is composed of a fluff pulp/SAP mixture. Designed in three configurations – from entry level to premium applicators – the SAPplicator is available to suit the performance requirements and financial constraints of the various markets it serves.

Entry Level SAPplicators – combine a multi-flight auger and tachometer feedback in a unit that is upgradeable and suitable for applications involving tight cost control of the SAP component or low volume runs. Application rates up to 600 pounds per hour. (For emerging markets or institutional consumption.)

Mid-Range SAPplicators – offer all the advantages of the entry-level unit with the added benefit of a compact “loss-in-weight” scale and digital controller for even greater accuracy of the metered product. The unit is ideal for more demanding applications that require greater accuracy, fast lines, and more rigorous accuracy.  Application rates up to 1,200 pounds per hour. (For private label or branded products.) 

Premium Range SAPplicators – Acrison’s flagship and ultimate performance feeder combines all the advantages of the mid-range unit with a larger “loss-in-weight” scale and digital controller for high accuracy at high rates. The unit is perfect for high rate applications, requires less refills (maximizing time spent in gravimetric “feeding” mode), and provides optimum short-term accuracy for excellent raw material (SAP) conservation. Application rates up to 3,300 pounds per hour. (For premium branded products.)


  • Patented Multi-Flight Auger Metering Mechanism – provides versatility to handle a wide range of SAP grades and offers maximum short term feed accuracy, minimal pulsation, a wider turn down ratio than conventional augers without sacrificing performance, and excellent repeatability over a wide feed range
  • Highly Accurate Dosing – minimizes SAP material and pad waste
  • All Steel Construction – provides long-term reliability with minimal maintenance requirements
  • Range of Model Sizes – application feed rates from 60 to 3,300 pounds per hour
  • Utilizes a high-speed serial motor control loop to ensure rapid acceleration of the applicator – reducing time taken to achieve target feed rate and to minimize product waste at startup
