Acrison volumetric feederDesigned for both continuous and batching applications, Acrison’s Models 170-1-2 and 170-2-2 Volumetric Feeders incorporate a versatile metering mechanism featuring two independently driven metering augers for the accurate and reliable feeding of a diverse variety of dry solid ingredients over a wide feed range. The design of the Models 170-1-2 and 170-2-2 Feeders eliminate the undesirable requirement to change the size of the feeder’s metering auger whenever a feed range is required that cannot be effectively achieved by a single size auger. By incorporating two separate metering augers sized accordingly, a very wide feed range is possible.
