Custom Material Handling Equipment: Metering Feeders

DEMAX Test Lab-sized Belt Feeder

What is a Metering Feeder?

 Industrial Metering Feeders are controlled dispensing machines used for either:

  • Continuously delivering material at a controlled flow rate for continuous processes (such as plastics extrusion). This is known as CONTINUOUS FEEDING; or
  • Cyclically delivering material up to a determined weight (such as bag filling). This is BATCH FEEDING.

Means of Implementing

  Depending on the flow characteristics of fed material and the required feed rate, an Auger Feeder, a Belt Feeder, a Rotary Valve Feeder  or a Vibratory Feeder would work best.
