Acrison’s heavy duty Model 105 and 140 Series of Volumetric Feeders for dry solids feature a unique, dissimilar speed, double concentric auger metering mechanism designed to accurately and reliably meter a very wide variety of dry solid materials. The metering mechanism consists of a large 'conditioning auger' or Intromitter, concentrically mounted around a smaller, slower rotating 'metering auger', operating at dissimilar speeds in a fixed proportion to each other by a single variable speed gearmotor.
Unique Dissimilar Speed, Double Concentric Metering Mechanism – conditions material to a very consistent state while efficiently and reliably filling the metering auger from a full 360º
Common Drive Network – mechanically links the slower speed 'conditioning auger' with the metering auger via a single, variable speed AC or DC gearmotor.
All Steel Construction – provides long-term durability with minimal maintenance requirements
Wide Range of Model Sizes – for feed rates from 0.0012 to 3400 cubic feet per hour
All contact parts are 304 stainless steel including the feeder’s drive shafts and seal components
Variable speed AC or DC gearmotor drive with either a 30:1 or 50:1 speed range
Various materials of construction
Sanitary construction to comply with USDA and FDA codes and requirements
High temperature and pressure construction
Quick-disconnect construction for ease-of-cleanout
Various AC and DC variable speed motor controllers and control modes
Available as the integral metering mechanisms for certain model Acrison Weight-loss Weigh Feeders
