Feeding of bulk material - an elementary function within a powder process

A simple feeding job can disturb a production process or lead to waste product if the engineering of the feeding application has not been done carefully or if the wrong equipment is used.

The requirements for the mechanical design of a powder feeder is large:
- the feeder must ensure the massflow in the hopper
- the helix or screw has to be filled without interruption and with product of constant density
- variable capacity range increase the flexibility of a feeder
- easy cleaning should reduce the down time of a plant

For many years, Gericke has been manufacturing all different kind of feeders. Many of them are still doing their job in a very reliable manner. The lot of experience that Gericke gained in designing and delivering of conveying, feeding and mixing equipment characterise the feederss design. The best electronic tool cannot overcome the limits of the physical properties and behaviour that powders show within a hopper or feeder.

To offer highest flexibility and a long lifecycle, the Gericke volumetric feeders can be upgraded easily to gravimetric feeding systems, either for batch or for continuous operation.

Consider our rental units and large test labs already in the planning stage of a project. They will be of support to realise your intended process.
