Design Features

The FB130 is ideal for gravimetric feeding of flakes, chips, pellets and similar bulk material. The housing is made of stainless steel. The removable side cover is equipped with a window for observing the material flow. Slide gates at the hopper outlet allow the material flow to be easily adjusted. The easy to clean belt is made of a polyurethane coated polyester. The unit can be easily cleaned by sliding the conveyor out of the housing. For bulk materials which tend to clump, a brush is fixed at the outlet of the belt.

The feeder can optionally be equipped with an agitator for feeding powders with special characteristics, e.g. powders with very low melting points, powders with wax additives, or powders with very abrasive characteristics.
