Gravimetric metering feeders from Brabender Technologie are capable of reliably and accurately metering bulk ingredients with good to critical flow characteristics. The product line includes high-tech loss-in-weight feeders and stable weigh-belt feeders.
The program of Brabender loss-in-weight feeders offers solutions for powders, pellets, flakes, chips, fibers, etc. due to a variety of ingredient suited feed mechanisms like single and twin screws, vibrating trays, vibratory mass flow feeders, rotary tubes, etc. Dependable ingredient mass flow and reliable performance are ensured by efficient agitation methods like paddle-massaged flexible hoppers or stirring agitators.
The product line is completed by an array of compact weigh-belt feeders, which are preferably used where feed rates are high and headroom is restricted. These robust feeders are capable of metering fine-grained to lumpy ingredients including materials with easily damageable particles.
Gravimetric metering feeders from Brabender Technologie are found in all bulk solids processing industries throughout the world, for instance in plastics compounding and extrusion processes and in the chemical, detergent, rubber, adhesives, food, pet food, sugar, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, life science, ceramics, construction material and glass industries.
For processes with high demands on hygiene, e. g. for the food industry, the feeder line comprises special hygienic designs. All gravimetric metering feeders from Brabender Technologie are also available as "intelligent" weigh-feeders with built-in control and speed regulation electronics for direct connection to host/PLC systems or/and to Brabender touch screen operator interfaces.
