SOMERSET, NJ. — Equipment manufacturer Gericke USA offers Feedos S, a bulk material feeding system for sanitary processing.
Feedos S features 316L stainless steel in product contact areas polished to a fine surface finish as smooth as Ra <0.8 µm. The feeder’s configuration allows the feeding tool and feeding chamber to be safely accessed and quickly disassembled for cleaning, reducing the time and labor required for product changeover as well as the potential for cross contamination, according to the company.
Suitable for volumetric feeding and dosing of flow-resistant and free-flowing powders, granules, flakes and other dry bulk ingredients, it includes hygienic seals and tri-clamps rather than screwed joints for easily connecting upstream and downstream equipment. It is available with a choice of dosing tools, hopper sizes and connections.
