Process Control Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the newly redesigned PF Series Powder Feeder. This new design is more robust than its predecessors, and allows for increased efficiency and lower maintenance. Special features include weephole for visual monitoring of the system.
Carried over for the PF Series, this feeder offers operators unprecedented metering accuracy from ultra low rates up to 3000 pounds per hour.
Incorporated into the brushed stainless steel design is a unique round-to-trough feeding area which provides more consistent mass flow for better metering accuracy. The feeder is designed with a steep wall, removable hopper which features a dust-tight band clamp for easy mounting of hopper extensions and quick disassembly for clean out. The bottom trough design is optimized to provide maximum material exposure to the auger.
Separate drives for the agitator and metering auger allow appropriate agitation at all auger speeds. Metering augers are available at full pitch or 1/2 pitch configurations with helix diameters from 1/4in to 2-1/4in. The PF Series can be configured with controls for intermittent agitator operation, which is particularly useful when operating at very low rates. Additionally, this variable speed agitator permits thorough mixing in all areas of the metering section.
The unprecedented metering accuracy of the PF Series Powder feeder is enhanced by a proprietary filtering method which allows very accurate and consistent gravimetric metering in the presence of ambient vibration and electrical noise.
The feeder is available either as a stand alone or configured as an element on a gravimetric blender. Be sure to also check out the product spotlight on the XU Series 2 Continuous Gravimetric Powder Blender and watch how to put together the new PF Series Powder Feeder on PCC’s Youtube Channel.
