Product category: Gravimetric dosing and metering equipment

FGB MECS

Max. Capacity: approx 50 kg / h *
Number of components: 2, 3 or 4
Easy Clean System
Various control options
Compact and robust

Gravimetric dosing

The smallest GRAVIMIX dosing-blending system FGB MECS, is designed for efficient and accurate dosing of dry, free-flowing thermoplastic materials. The FGB MECS is especially suited for injection-moulding, small extrusion and blow-molding machines where consistency and high quality of the finished product is required.
The Easy Clean System is the bench mark for the industry, it is the improved version of the FGB MINI, already revolution at its introduction. Easy Clean System means no need for the loaders to come off if you need to take off the hoppers for cleaning. Of course without the need for tools.
Due to the high and consistent dosing accuracy, the additive percentage can be reduced to lower tolerance limits without rejects or a loss in quality. The resulting savings in additives leads to a direct reduction in production costs.

The FGB MECS is suited for dosing of virgins (granulate), free flowing regrind, masterbatch and/or additives. This compact and space-saving blending system can be installed directly on the throat of a processing machine. Due to simple removable parts a quick cleaning and material change is guaranteed.

Components are dosed after each other into the weigh-bin, which is supported by an accurate weigh system. After weigh out the complete batch is discharged into the mixing chamber and the horizontal mixer provides a consistent blend.

A level sensor outside the mixing chamber controls the complete blending cycle. The FGB MECS is an economic and user friendly blending system.

FGB FLECS

Max. Capacity:approximately 300 kg / h *
Number of components:2, 3 or 4
Various control options
Compact and robust

Gravimetric dosing

The dosing-mixing system GRAVIMIX FGB FLECS is designed for the efficient and precise dosing of dry and free flowing thermoplastic materials. The FGB FLECS is ideally suited for injection molding machines, extruders and blow molding machines, where a consistently high quality of your end product is sought.

With the revolutionairy Easy Clean System, it is the bench mark for the industry. The FLECS is an improved version of our 1,5, already a revolution at its introduction. FLECS, Ferlin Large Easy Clean System.

Easy Clean Systems means it is no longer necessary to take of the loaders in order to take of the dosing hoppers. All without the need of tools, just like with the mixing chamber and weigh bin. The mixing chamber can be taken out, even when it is full with material, without spilling it.

Because of the constant dosing accuracy, the percentage of additives to minimize, without compromising the quality of the finished product. The resulting savings result in an immediate reduction in production.

The FGB FLECS is suited for dosing of virgins (granulate), free flowing regrind, masterbatch and/or additives. This compact and space-saving blending system can be installed directly on the throat of a processing machine. Due to simple removable parts a quick cleaning and material change is guaranteed.

All components are dosed after eachother into the weigh bin, which is supported by an accurate weigh system. After weigh out, the complete batch is discharged into the mixing chamber and the horizontal mixer provides a homogeneous mixture. A Level sensor outside the mixing chamber controls the complete blending cycle. The FGB FLECS is an economical and user friendly blending system.

FGB 25

Max. Capacity: 1000 - 2750 kg / h *
Number of components: 2 to 10
Various control options
Compact and robust

Gravimetric dosing

The dosing-mixing system GRAVIMIX FGB 25, is the largest system and developed for the efficient dispensing of free-flowing thermoplastic materials. The FGB 25 is applicable for large extruders, blow molding machines and a central mixer for multi-processing machines, where a consistently high quality of your end product is sought.

The registration of all used components makes an exact calculation in production. Because of the constant dosing accuracy, the additive percentage can be reduced to lower tolerance limits without rejects or a loss in quality.

The FGB 25 is suited for dosing of virgins (granulate), free flowing regrind, masterbatch and/or additives.This large Gravimix blending system can be installed directly on the processing machine, on a platform or next to the processing machine. Due to simple removable parts a quick cleaning and material change is guaranteed.

Components are dosed after each other into the weigh-bin, which is supported by an accurate weigh system. After weigh out, the complete batch is discharged into the mixing chamber and the horizontal mixer provides a consistent blend. A level sensor in the mixing chamber controls the total dosing cycle. The FGB 25 is an economic, reliable and user friendly blending system.

Technical Specification

Accuracy

The system weighs with an accuracy of 0.01 grams. Weight of each component, depending on the type of operation, in 0.1 or 1 gram on the screen. (For user-interfaces see separate documentation).

Configuration:

Due to the modular construction of the FGB 25 series, there are 21 different designs available, from 2 to 10 components. The central hopper has a large opening with two slide valves and may be divided into two compartments. The remaining hoppers have slide valves and if necessary, there are two additional dosing cylinders optionally mounted.

Parts in contact with the material are made of stainless steel. Depending on the production, the FGB 25 comes with an economical, microprocessor based plug-in control or an advanced Industrial PC with touch screen operation. As an additional alert extra low-level sensors are provided (option). The controller also features a connection for a machine hopper sensor.

Installation options

About us

Company details

Ferlin Plastics Automation was founded in 1985 and started as a trading company selling all kinds of technical supplies. When it entered the plastics industry it started with the sales of central conveying systems, Movac. In 1992 Ferlin developed the Gravimix® gravimetric batch blender series. Being the first European manufacturer a lot of experience is present.

Sturdy construction, logic solutions, easy operation and cleaning, all combined in one machine. Being a relatively small business, 10 people, Ferlin excels in flexibility and quick response. Because of the carefully selected dealership network, high service can be guaranteed in many countries all over the world.

Because Ferlin is selling all kinds of ancillaries in the Netherlands, there is still a direct and close contact to the end-users, which results in practical solutions being engineered from a processors point of view.

For Ferlin, this year’s K-show is mainly meant to contact, off course, potential buyers, but mainly to contact companies who trade ancillaries for the plastics processing industry without a descent gravimetric batch blender in their portfolio. Some of the countries who need to be serviced better than present are Romania, Hungary Switzerland and South American nations, Arabic nations and African nations.

For any further information please check our homepage www.ferlin.nl or contact us by telephone +31 523 613439.

We hope to meet as many people as possible during the fair, everybody is welcome, even if you are not listed in the above summary of preferred visitors.
