Description: In Session 2 of Feeders 101 entitled
“Product Handling”, Tom Rickenbach of K-Tron discusses
guidelines for matching the appropriate feeder to your process
needs. Tom discusses single and twin screw feeders, weigh
belts, vibratory feeders, bulk-solids pumps, liquid pumps and
smart flow meters. Also he discusses special feeders used
in pharmaceutical applications.
When discussing screw feeders, he
presents the various screw, tube and hopper configurations,
along with methods to calculate the volumetric throughput for
both screws and belts.
To choose the best feeder for
your application, Tom categorizes many bulk solids properties to
help you select the proper feeder. To avoid common flow problems
and enhance the accuracy of the feeder, Tom discusses various
types of “flow aids”, such as agitation, vibration, and coatings
that can be employed to enhance flow through the feeder.
Tom completes the session
discussing online resources that are available from K-Tron to
make the decisions simpler.
Finally, Tom discusses why it is
important to understand feeder accuracy and how to test and
verify that a scale is working properly. He concludes this
session by discussing various application examples.
