Acrison Volumetric Feeders are universally acclaimed for their unique ability to accurately and reliably feed an extremely broad variety of dry solid ingredients. Their innovative and technologically superior designs provide a high degree of versatile volumetric metering performance. The quality of construction and durability of these volumetric feeders is unsurpassed; their maintenance requirements are the lowest in the industry.
A true volumetric feeder encompasses a positive method of measuring a specific volume of product and a means to effectively discharge that material, generally over a variable range. With an auger type volumetric feeder, the auger is the means used to measure volume, discharging the “measured” volume of material with each revolution, as it typically rotates through a discharge spout. Consequently, the viability of any auger type volumetric feeder is dependent upon how uniformly and consistently the feed auger is filled with product, and how reliably this is accomplished.
