Recently, one of the most famous producers of chocolate and sweets in Poland contacted us. For the newly created producton line, a feeder was needed that would reliably and accurately feed additives (nuts, dried fruit, pieces of cookies and candies.) with a capacity of 100-400 kg/h in the continuous mode. The project was gaining momentum very quickly, all line components had to be selected and delivered expressly. As our client is a leading player in the food industry, the requirements for the quality of equipment are always very high. In view of various materials with particles with a grain size of up to 10mm, which can be easily crumbled and damaged, we have proposed DTU300 weigh belt feeder in a dustproof housing. To meet the customer’s needs and thanks to the availability of key parts in our warehouse, we made and delivered the device in just a few weeks. It is the second feeder of this type at this customer in recent years, which confirms the positive experience in cooperation with us and the high quality of our products.
The DTU feeder is a device designed especially for work in the food industry. It is entirely made of 304 or 316L stainless steel and FDA approved materials for contact with food. Depending on the capacity, it is available with a belt width of 300mm or 600mm. The device itself can feed solids with an error below 0.5% of the set point. Another type of use is to work as a flow measurement and to sum up bulk material with high accuracy. Due to the special hygienic design, the feeder is safe for food, can be quickly pulled out and all the essentials (including the tape) removed for cleaning. Our device also has a special mechanism for belt guidance and tensioning the belt by gravity. The basic components used in its construction come from the most famous European manufacturers: SEW inverter and geared motor (aseptic version on request), HBM load cell made of stainless steel (IP67 or IP69K), Habasit PVC belt, Pepperl + Fuchs speed sensor. The use of special software in the Flex controller allows for monitoring and indicating alarms, e.g. belt slip, belt deviation, dosing deviations error and overload of the measuring system.
Our team of engineers will be pleased to select the appropriate variant of the device and provide advice on its proper installation in your production line.
