The MechaTron® 3-A feeder was designed specifically for use in food, pet food and dairy process applications where equipment must meet 3-A sanitary levels or equivalent. All welds, radii, seals, surface finishes, gaskets, and 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, 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.
A domed hopper cover and open bottom frame speeds and optimizes draining during and after wash-down cycles. Smooth, crevice-free product contact surfaces at 32 micro inch or better help prevent the formation of bacteria.
Additionally, Schenck Process also offers industrial grade versions of the MechaTron® in low, mid, and high range models with feed rates from 0.002 to 1,137 cubic feet (.58 to 32,160 liters) per hour.
