MBF Micro-Batch Feeders are particularly suitable for feeding poorly flowing powders and granular materials which tend to clog. A comprehensive modular system design ensures the right solution for virtually all user requirements.
The MBF Micro-Batch Feeder for continuous volumetric feeding of powdery or granular materials consists of a steel-reinforced SINT engineering polymer body (optionally body entirely manufactured from stainless steel), a horizontally mounted rotating agitator tool, a feeder screw beneath the agitator tool, a feeder pipe enclosing the protruding feeder screw, one drive unit each for agitator and feeder screw. Tests on product flow and material stress were carried out to establish optimum body geometry. Agitator and feeder tool geometry and materials were tested, too, before choosing an optimal steel and SINT engineering polymer composite. On request, MBF series Micro-Batch Feeders are supplied in food-grade versions with both FDA and EN- approval.
