Schenck Process launches Simplex FB

Published by , Assistant Editor
World Cement,

Schenck Process has presented its new Simplex Flat Bottom Feeder at K-Show.

The Simplex FB is a high-capacity stainless steel feeder that is designed specifically for handling materials with light and fluffy characteristics. With a bottom driven vertical agitator and an auxiliary agitator, the Simplex FB is perfect for hard to feed materials such as chopped polypropylene or PET plastic film when feeding to an extruder. The main agitator runs close to the flat bottom of the feed module to assist the filling of the feed screw and the auxiliary agitator supports product flow at the lower end of the extension hopper. Having dual agitators make it ideal for feeding lightweight materials in plastics processing applications.

The Simplex FB can be operated either as a loss in weight or volumetric feeder. When designed as a loss-in-weight feeder the unit comes equipped with VKN weighing modules that are either placed underneath the feet of the feeder or directly on the mounting floor. A modular hopper concept supports easy installation and a one seal concept for all shaft seals provides quick maintenance.

The new Simplex FB is the perfect solution for feeding plastic flakes, cellulose, hemp, glass or carbon fibers and other virgin or recycled materials for plastic film or compounding applications.
