Volumetric Feeders by Acrison
Leadership through innovation
Throughout the various processing industries, the requirement to meter dry bulk solids is not only commonplace, but also, usually one of the more critical elements associated with a given manufacturing process.
In fact, the overall performance of the feeding equipment, more often than not, is directly proportional to the quality of the end product.
Very simply, a volumetric feeder is a device that meters by volume, as opposed to a gravimetric feeder, which meters by weight.
Because of their lower cost and simplicity, volumetric feeders are more widely utilized.
A true volumetric feeder encompasses a method of measuring volume and a means to discharge that measured volume over a variable range by varying the speed of the feeding mechanism.
