Bulk material feeder ensures consistent product flow

| By Gerald Ondrey

The Feedos S bulk material feeder (photo) automatically meters and doses powders and other dry materials with the high accuracy and consistency needed to optimize continuous processes. Featuring a proprietary design, the Feedos S is engineered with optimized geometry that eliminates dead zones to promote smooth, uninterrupted flow of a wide range of free-flowing and non-flowing materials. Suitable for food, dairy, chemical, pharmaceutical and other manufacturers, the Feedos S ensures a non-stop flow of material to mixers, blenders, compounders, reactors and other continuous processing equipment at rates up to 500 L/h. Additional models achieve throughput rates up to 54,000 L/h. — Gericke USA, Inc., Somerset, N.J.
