When evaluating a dry solids feeder manufacturer, with the intent to purchase equipment, there are a number of factors that should be taken into consideration before making a decision. The following is a list of those items that require careful evaluation.
I. SYSTEM DESIGN PARAMETERS
1. Feed Rates:
a) Minimum, average and maximum rates are important design criteria which need to be considered carefully when selecting a feeder.
2. How will the material get to the feeder?
(Example: manually, pneumatically, live bottom, conveyor, other?) a) Does the means of filling the feeder affect the product characteristics in any way (densify, fluidize, degrade, etc.)?
3. What will the feeder discharge into?
Check for presence of moisture, pressure, extreme temperature, etc., that can possibly affect performance, or cause mechanical difficulties.
Products & Services
Industrial mixers use a shaft, screw, blades, ribbons, impellers or propellers to mix industrial materials such as adhesives, chemicals, construction materials, minerals, coatings and paints.
Powder and Solids Blenders
Powder and solids blenders produce a uniform mixture of dry or powdery materials. They are designed for industrial and laboratory environments, and provide either batch or continuous blending.
Solids feeders are used to deliver powder, granular and other bulk solid materials along a process line, or to and from process units, storage bins, conveyors and product packaging.
