Proven design with thousands of running applications. Gericke feeders are designed for the accurate dosing of various bulk materials. The throughput ranges from 0.2 to 77,000 l/.
Gericke offers suitable feeding solutions also for liquids. The high metering accuracy, the modular design and robust construction of the Gericke feeders have created values for many years in various industries, such as:
Principle of operation.
Accurate metering of bulk solids is achieved using a spiral helix, screw, rotary valve, rotating agitator, vibrating tray or cylindrical stator. Even in the volumetric mode, the feedrate remains constant under the condition of a repeatable fill level and an even bulk density of the powder which provides a continuous filling degree of the metering helix.
Feeder, drive with integrated or external frequency inverter, hopper with/without lid in the inlet and venting spigots and flexible connection sleeves, depending on the feeder model with horizontal or concentric agitator.
Additional vertical bridge breaker in the hopper
