06.08.2018 Feeder now available with quick-change capability

Brabender Technologie, Duisburg, Germany, has introduced an easy change version of its popular FlexWall® Plus loss-in-weight feeder. A feeding exchange module enables users to substantially reduce downtimes during product changeovers. One module will be in production while the other is being cleaned. This allows further quick product changeovers once the dry and wet cleaning process has been completed. “This smart solution minimises cleaning times, accelerates bulk material changeovers and makes more formulations feasible with less equipment”, said Bernhard Hüppmeier, sales manager for Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The easy change design version of the FlexWall will be one of the highlights on the Brabender Technologie stand at FAKUMA, which takes place 16-19 October in Friedrichshafen.

The Brabender FlexWall® Plus feeder is an all-purpose loss-in-weight feeder for practically any free-flowing bulk materials including powders, pellets or flakes. Its flexible polyurethane hopper features lateral massage paddles, which gently stir the bulk material and ensure mass flow without degradation. Different replaceable screw profiles are used depending on the bulk material handled and the performance range required. The easy change version includes the hopper, screw, screw tube and housing as a single unit. Quick-release clamps secure this unit to the chassis and drive mechanism. They only need to be released to enable any residual bulk material to be removed.
