Brabender FeederScout

New online program for automatic selection of the optimum bulk ingredient metering feeder

Brabender Technologie KG, one of the leading global feeder suppliers, has published a sophisticated program on their Website for automatic selection of the optimum feeder for a specific purpose. After entering the relevant basic data, the `FeederScout` determines the optimum metering feeder in due consideration of both technical appropriateness and cost-efficiency. Upon request the `FeederScout` also submits a quotation along with its feeder proposal.

The `FeederScout` has been made possible by months of work spent by an expert team from Brabender and an extensive database keeping a record of almost 15,000 feeding trials.

Beside the bulk ingredient parameters entered (name, feed rate, bulk density, bulk ingredient class, etc.), the `FeederScout` takes into account a multitude of other parameters such as ingredient-specific filling ratios of feed screws and trays, flow characteristics, special properties and particularities often not thought of when selecting a feeder. If several different feeder types turn out appropriate, the `FeederScout` compares these with respect to optimum suitability of their feeding principles (screw, twin screw, vibrating tray, etc.) as well as to best effectiveness of their respective agitation systems promoting ingredient flow (flexible hopper with paddle agitation, stirring agitator). Based on the results, the program suggests the most suitable solution.
