    MechaTron® Min: the mini loss-in-weight feeder

    Big isn’t always better. From Schenck Process there is now an ideal solution for feeding very small volumes of powder, and it’s called MechaTron® Min. This gravimetric feeder has a delivery rate between 100 g/h and 10 kg/h. Typical applications include laboratory and test facilities for feeding extruders, mixers, mills and granulators.

    The MechaTron® Min features a double shaft and vertical agitator. It is designed to allow quick dismantling for cleaning and replacement of the discharge devices.

    Two different feed hoppers are available to suit different products and delivery rates. The 4 l hopper with negative taper has an agitator that works near the base and is suitable for manual filling and small outputs. The 8 l hopper is conical and also has an agitator that works near the walls and a cover with refill and ventilation necks for larger outputs and automatic refilling.

    Both versions come with integrated measurement, control and regulation electronics of the high quality that Schenck Process customers have come to expect. The drive and weighing technology is contained in a dust-protected housing. An extra protective housing can be fitted over the entire system to minimise environmental disturbances. This is particularly recommended for small outputs.

    It’s the small system that’s big on performance. Superior quality from Schenck Process – even for very small volumes.
