Metering Screw Feeders are specially designed to continuously dose materials, from harsh granules to fine powders, at a constant volume to high accuracies. The feeder is made up of a feeder body, complete with rotating agitator and various control functions which provide constant or intermittent feeding to suit the nature of the products being handled. The agitator manipulates the product to a uniform density and breaks any bridges that may form in the feeder body. The product is administered into an auger screw, which can be rotated at variable speeds, ensuring accurate metering at a constant volume of 1% to 2% typically.
