New: Volumetric and Gravimetric Feeder GDU610
In the case of volumetric feeders, feed rate is normally not regulated continuously, but should remain constant if there is no change in bulk density. A precondition for this is constant filling of the metering organ.
Feeding of the bulk material, when using the GDU610, is carried out by means of a metering helix or metering screw. A wide variety of helixes and screws for all types of products, installation situations and process specifications means an ideal solution can always be found.
Here at Gericke, we attach a great deal of importance to the linear course of the feed rate in connection with the development of a volumetric feeder. The feed rate depends on the volume transported per time unit. Precise volumetric metering is also an important precondition for high gravimetric accuracy.
The new allpurpose GDU610 feeder with complete emptying covers a feed rate range from 340 l/h to 36.000 l/h. The feeder can be used in connection with products with all kinds of flow characteristics, e.g. from ones which flush to those with poor flowing properties. A considerable number of intromitters are available in order to guarantee continuous, even product flow. Special hygienic designs, as well as those used when metering raisins and fruits, are also available on demand.
Since the beginning of this year, the volumetric feeder type GDU610 has also been available in the 3Eweigh feeder design. Various hopper sizes up to a standard hopper volume of 1600 litres are realisable.
The 3E lossinweight feeders and the hybrid weight feeders, available on demand, can also be equipped with a vertical agitator in order to prepare bulk materials with very poor flowing properties for the metering process. Very demanding metering accuracy can also be achieved short term if the feeder is combined with the intelligent Gericke Easydos Pro controller. User programmes and configuration can be downloaded off the computer and the settings and data can be downloaded by means of a memory stick.
Gericke manufactures complete feeding, conveying and mixing systems. Trials with our complete product portfolio can be carried out at our Test Center in a handsonlike environment.
