Dissimilar Speed Dual Auger/Agitator Metering Mechanism - Model 1015 Series

Model 1015 Series Dry Solids Volumetric Feeders…with Dual Auger/Agitator Metering Mechanism


Model 1015Z Metering Mechanism

Acrison’s ruggedly built Model 1015 Series of Volumetric Feeders for dry solids feature a dissimilar speed, dual auger/agitator metering mechanism in a specially contoured feed chamber. Rotation of the larger 'conditioning' agitator produces bi-directional agitation of product within the feed chamber to ensure positive downward flow into the metering auger beneath. When permitted to feed until empty, only a minimal amount of residual product will remain in the feeder.


  • Unique Dual Auger/Agitator Metering Mechanism – provides product consistency while simultaneously filling the metering auger for accurately and reliably feeding a wide variety of materials
  • Common Drive Network – mechanically links the conditioning auger/agitator and metering auger with a single, variable speed AC or DC gearmotor
  • All Steel Construction – provides long term durability with minimal maintenance requirements
  • Wide Range of Model Sizes – feed rates from 0.0012 – 3,400 cu.ft./hr.


  • All contact parts are 304 stainless steel including the feeder's drive shafts and seal components
  • Variable speed AC or DC gearmotor 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
  • Integral supply hoppers up to six cubic feet (Models 1015, 1015X and 1015Z) depending upon product characteristics
  • Integral supply hoppers available for Models 1015XX and 1015YY (contact Acrison)
  • Available as the integral metering mechanisms for certain model Acrison 'Weight-Loss' Weigh Feeders
