Flexiblity key feature in Schenck's feeder
Schenck AccuRate Inc. developed the new ProFlex C feeder for extruder manufacturers and compounders. Flexibility was a key design goal. The alternating-current drive motor assembly and material discharge positions can be exchanged to optimize the feeder's ability to accommodate different requirements for mounting and clustering for as many as eight feeders. Also, the ProFlex C supports single-screw and twin-screw configurations. It can be serviced from two different sides, with no need for special tools. The feeder has a flexible polyurethane feed hopper. A six-point external agitation system can be adjusted without influencing screw speed. The firm has opened a new sales office across the street from its four-building complex in Whitewater, Wis. Tel. 262-473-2441, fax 262-473-2489.
