Tuf-Flex Series Volumetric Feeders
Available from Schenck Process
In most every industry worldwide, from chemicals to food, plastics, pharmaceuticals and countless others, you'll find Schenck AccuRate volumetric feeders at work, metering fine powders, flakes, granules, chips, fibers, pellets and anything else imaginable.
Instead of incorporating traditional internal stirring or vibration devices to keep material moving, Schenck AccuRate pioneered the preferred Tuf-Flex™ seamless vinyl hopper, that is externally massaged by two agitation paddles. Material is conditioned to a uniform bulk density, evenly filling the flights of the feed screw, eliminating ratholing and bridging. The result is excellent volumetric accuracy. Volumetric feeding deviations range from +/-0.5% to 3% for most materials.
