High-precision volumetric dosing
Accurate and reliable feeding of bulk materials is at the heart of many processes. Gericke volumetric feeders combine a precise volumetric material flow and a high degree of flexibility. Often, they are the most economic choice for applications which do not require the exceptional accuracy of loss-in-weight feeders.
