Proven design with thousands of running applications. Gericke feeders are designed for the accurate dosing of various bulk materials. The throughput ranges from 0.2 to 77,000 l/.
Gericke offers suitable feeding solutions also for liquids. The high metering accuracy, the modular design and robust construction of the Gericke feeders have created values for many years in various industries, such as:
Accurate metering of bulk solids is achieved using a spiral helix, screw, rotary valve, rotating agitator, vibrating tray or cylindrical stator. Even in the volumetric mode, the feedrate remains constant under the condition of a repeatable fill level and an even bulk density of the powder which provides a continuous filling degree of the metering helix.
Important parameters for a precise dosing:
1. Uniform subsequent flow in the hopper by means of agitator and adapted auger shape
2. Uniform bulk density and feeding in helix and screw by using intromitters.
3. Correct selection of the auger and metering tube
A linear volumetric feeder is also a prerequisite for a good gravimetric feeding.
Cereals, muesli bars, sugar mixtures, milk powder, diet breakfast drinks, salt iodisation, fluoridation, aromatisation
Premixes for extrusion, detergents, pesticides, fertilizers, building materials
Production of vitamins and active ingredients
Processing of plastic, films, coatings
Flue gas cleaning, water processing, diesel particle filters. The feeders can be adjusted to the process requirements.
Available capacity range from approx. 0.2 l/h to approx. 77.000 l/h depending on the bulk characteristics.
Feeder, drive with integrated or external frequency inverter, hopper with/without lid in the inlet and venting spigots and flexible connection sleeves, depending on the feeder model with horizontal or concentric agitator.
