Schenck AccuRate Inc., which makes bulk solids metering equipment in Whitewater, Wis., rolled out the Coni-Steel, all-stainless-steel feeder.
The feeder has a conical, cornerless feed hopper and a design that gives access to screw motors and the internal feed hopper without the need to first remove extension hoppers, inlet valves and discharge tubes.
Coni-Steel is part of AccuRate's line of Mechatron feeders, which this year won the top new product award from the Wisconsin Society of Professional Engineers. "Mechatronics" is the company's new design philosophy that fully integrates mechanics, such as motors and electronic control devices. AccuRate said this design gives the feeders true "plug-and-play" capability.
