Fresco Systems offer both volumetric (product flow rate is by volume and set over a given time) and gravimetric (product flow rate is by weight and controlled using loadcells) types of metering screw feeders, with throughputs ranging from 1.76 litres/hr up to 13,650 litres/hr.
The crucial factor in achieving accuracy is consistent product bulk density by proper design and selection of an agitator in the conditioning zone above the screw auger. The agitator de-aerates and densifies the product to a uniform density and breaks any bridges, preventing hold up in the hopper.
This combined with a vast selection of screw sizes and types allows a wide cross-section of materials to be fed very accurately. Volumetric accuracy of ±1% to ±2% and gravimetric accuracy’s of ±0.25% to ±1% depending on the material can easily be achieved.
Weigh platforms fitted under the standard feeder linked to a batch controller provide accurate loss in weight feeding. Two-way RS 232 serial ports will send and receive signals from other plant control systems.
An easily removable front section provides access for cleaning and screw changes.
