Advanced Extruder Technologies of Elk Grove Village, Ill., said its new line of heavy-duty screw feeders are custom-designed for the specific material and bulk density.
The large machines, also called crammers, most often are used in scrap reclamation and compounding. The feeders can be adapted to all extruders by modifying or replacing the existing feed section.
Diameters of the feed screw/ augers range from 1½-10 inches. An automatic torque feed back control corrects for changes in bulk density and material feeding efficiency, sending a steady flow of material to the extruder.
