High-volume twin-screw feeder delivers precision

By Chemical Engineering |

Best Process Solutions

The Model TSF twin-screw feeder (photo) is designed for precise batching and weighing applications, including: batching to weigh hoppers; low loss-in-weight, scale-monitored flow; low loss-of-weight batch applications with scales; drum and pail packout lines; and recipe-type batching by multiple computer-controlled units. The feeder’s dual-helix design combines fast, high-volume filling with accurate dribble flow at the end of the cycle. Its compact design is ideal when limited space prohibits multiple individual screw units. Two helixes — 1.5 and 4 in. in diameter — are mounted on a hopper. They are rated at 17 and 283 ft 3 /h, respectively, at maximum RPM with 100% efficient conveyable product and no slippage. — Best Process Solutions, Inc. (BPS), Brunswick, Ohio
