The VF3000 is ideal for all applications that require consistent and accurate metering of powders, pellets and granules, suitable for industries such as Plastics, Food, Chemicals, Building Products, Water Treatment and many others.
The VF3000 is ideal for medium to large capacity applications. A large inlet size reduces the possibility of material bridging.
The VF3000 is a medium to large capacity Volumetric Feeder, available in a two pack epoxy finish, or optionally fabricated from stainless steel. The VF3000 is available in capacities ranging from 0.05 m3/Hr to 13 m3/Hr.
The feeder is designed to be easily disassembled for cleaning purposes. The front cover, metering screw and metering tube, can be removed to allow access to the feeder hopper.
For products that are only semi-free flowing, the VF3000 can be provided with either a vibrator, or an internal agitator. The vibrator can be supplied with an optional timer controller, which pulses the vibrator at a predetermined time interval whilst the feeder is running. The internal agitator option consists of an agitator blade and additional drive motor.
The VF3000 can be bolted directly to the bottom of an existing hopper, or can be supplied free standing. A range of various capacity extension hoppers are available upon request.
Variable speed control is available by means of an optional AC variable speed controller.
Typical accuracies of ±0.5% to ±3% are possible, depending on the type of material to be metered. For applications requiring higher accuracies, please refer to our range of Loss-In-Weight Feeders.
