This twin-screw feeder delivers precise batch size and weight

| By Gerald Ondrey

The Model TSF twin-screw feeder (photo) is designed for precise batching and weighing applications. 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 helices (1.5- and 4-in. dia.) are mounted on an 18 in. x 22 in. hopper. They are rated at 17 and 283 ft3/h, respectively, at maximum rotational speed with 100%-efficient conveyable product and no slippage. The TSF is suitable for batching to weight 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. — Best Process Solutions, Inc., Brunswick, Ohio
