Product category: Gravimetric dosing and metering equipment

BDS 2000

Gravimetric batch blender
 
The BDS 2000 is designed for the dosing and mixing of granules or other bulk like flakes and regrind. Main components are dosed by slide gates into a scaled hopper. Auxiliary components are dosed with screws driven, by servo motors.
FDM batch blenders ensure a homogeneous mix of the materials and the highest standard regarding the accuracy.

Benefits

● Designed for 8 components (4/6 main components with slide gate and 4 auxiliary comp. with dosing screw)
● Total throughput up to 100 kg/h, depending on the material properties
● Ready for ionized air
● Antistatic weighted hopper
● Teflon coated mixer

GDS 7

Gravimetric dosing system
Throughput control and gravimetric blending systems

Our GDS 7 series are applied, when continuous dosing with the highest accuracy is required. Basically the unit is located above the extruder inlet and fed by vacuum receivers. High quality load cells measure the loss in weight of the single components and the servo drives regulate the throughput of the auxiliary components.

Benefits
● Total 7 components (1 main and 6 auxilliary components dosed by screw)
● Max. throughput up to 1.600 kg/h
● Higher throughput possible as customized solution
● Pellet, flakes, regrind, additives and powder
● Suitable for single and twin screw extruders
● Customized solutions on demand
● Extruder and haul off control
● Siemens control

GDS Twin screw

Gravimetric dosing system
Twin screw units are mainly used, for the handling of poor flowing and adhesive materials.
The GDS Twin Screw is available as stand alone unit, what allows an integration of the unit to existing systems and it is used within our other GDS series (GDS7,GDS11).
Possible applications are the dosing of CaC03, Talc, pigments, Impact modifier and other materials.

Benefits
● Dosing of poor flowing and adhesive bulk
● No material bridges in weighted hopper and screw inlet, because of agitators available in different designs
● No adherence of material at the screw surface
● Dust sealed
● Operator friendly design
● Siemens control
