The MECHATRON® 3-A feeder was designed specifically for use in food and dairy industry process applications where equipment must meet 3-A sanitary levels or equivalent. All welds, radii, seals, surface finishes, gaskets and contact and non-contact materials meet 3-A standards. Available product features include:
- AC and DC drive packages
- An FDA/USDA accepted “Coni-Flex™” flexible conical feed-hopper
- Helix configurations for feed rates from 0.30 to 330 cubic feet per hour
- Ability to disassemble, clean, reconfigure, and service from the non-process side of the feeder
A domed hopper cover and open bottom frame speeds and optimizes draining during and after wash-down cycles. Smooth, crevice-free product contact surfaces at 32 micro inch or better help prevent the formation of bacteria. Industrial-grade versions are available in low-, mid- and high-range models with feed rates from 0.002 to 1,137 cubic feet per hour.
