Demonstration of Brabender FeederScout at IP-2008New online program for automatic selection of the optimum bulk ingredient metering feeder
DEMONSTRATION AT INDUSTRIAL PROCESSING 2008
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
