The addition of the Rotary Vane Feeder enables Company to offer more extreme solutions to problems encountered across the whole feeding, batching and filling processes. The technology utilizes two innovative key concepts: an inlet specially designed to ensure consistent material flow into the rotary drum and pneumatic evacuation technology to ensure reliable feeding, batching and filling even with difficult flowing materials. The product's solution to the typical drawbacks of conventional feeding devices is the concept of filling each vane on a consistent basis and ensuring complete discharge of each vane throughout the process. This procedure ensures a completely empty vane is presented for fill on the next rotation. Standard features include a compact and space-efficient design, as well as gentle metering and discharge of material, preventing segregation and degradation. The unit is available in volumetric or gravimetric operating modes in both gain-in-weight and loss-in-weight configurations.
