The MBF Micro-Batch Feeder offers unsurpassed performance in continuous volumetric feeding of powdery or granular materials. It consists of a steel-reinforced polymer body, a horizontally-mounted rotating agitator tool, a feeder screw beneath the agitator tool, a feeder pipe enclosing the protruding feeder screw, and one drive unit each for agitator and feeder screw. There is also an option for a body main entirely of steel.
The Micro-Batch Feeders we offer prize efficiency and performance, and are particularly suitable for poorly-flowing materials which tend to clog – further improving and streamlining your processes. Applicable across a range of discharge options – from a bag opening hopper to an FIBC discharger – the MBF’s agitator tool is expressly designed to keep material flowing and reduce lumps and bridges.
The body geometry of the MBR Micro-Batch Feeder has been optimised and tested to the highest standards.
Both product flow and material stress test results are excellent, and the agitator and feeder tools have likewise reach a range of exacting geometry and material benchmarks. Not only that, but MBF Micro-Batch Feeders are supplied in food-grade versions.
Our experienced engineers can advise on precisely the right MBF solution, taking into the consideration the variables which impact upon each application: from the size of the product particles, their coarseness or fineness, to how well your materials flow or cohere. Indeed, Depending on the user’s individual requirements, MBF Micro-Batch Feeders can be supplied with alternative feeder screws and blending tools and with various accessories.
