Accurate’s Mechatron 3-A Feeder is Excellent For Food and Pharmaceutical Process Applications

Whitewater, WI -- AccuRate’s 3-A Accepted Mechatron® Feeder was designed specifically for use in the food, dairy, and pharmaceutical industries where equipment and processes must meet 3-A sanitary levels or equivalent. All welds, radii, seals, surface finishes, gaskets, and all contact and non-contact materials meet 3-A standards.

Available product features include AC and DC drive packages, an FDA / USDA accepted “Coni-Flex™” flexible conical feed-hopper (patent pending), helix configurations for feed rates from 0.30 to 330 cubic feet (8.5 to 9,300 liters) per hour and an unmatched ability to disassemble, clean, reconfigure, and service from the non-process side of the feeder.

Additional benefits and features of the feeder include:

· Smooth (32 micro-inch or better) and crevice-free product contact surfaces, which helps prevent the formation of bacteria.
· A domed hopper cover and open bottom frame speeds and optimizes drainage during and after wash-down cycles.
· The use of 304 and 316 stainless steel and 3-A sanitary polymers makes cleaning quicker and easier
· Spun (weld-free) conical 316 stainless steel extension hoppers

In addition to the 3-A accepted Mechatron, AccuRate also offers industrial grade versions of the Mechanton in low range, mid range, and high range models with feed rates from 0.002 to 1,137 cubic feet (.58 to 32,160 liters) per hour.

AccuRate, a Unit of SCHENCK AccuRate, is a global supplier of bulk solids metering equipment and systems including Mechanton Volumetric and Gravimetric Screw- feeders, DEA and DMO Weigh feeders, Multicor and DLM Dry Material Flow meters, SacMaster Bulk Bag Discharging Systems, BEMP Belt Scales and SolidsFlow Louvered Vibratory Feeders.
