A Leader in Dry Materials Feeders for Polymers and Plastics Applications

Model VMF-90C™ Economical Volumetric Screw Feeder

Scaletron is a leader in dry materials feeding technology for volumetric screw feeders used in polymers and plastics processing environments. We manufacture a complete line of rugged, automatic metering screw feeders that are specifically designed for dispensing dry powdered or pelletized materials into a secondary process. Feeders are available with a gravimetric feed option with a built-in scale and a range of loading options from bag loaders to direct feed from silos.

From small processors to major plastics producers, feeding technology from Scaletron ensures that a consistent and precise amount of material, typically in powder or granular form, is accurately measured and dispensed into a process system or machinery.

Meeting the Feeding Needs of the Plastics Processing Industry

We meet the needs of the plastics and polymers market by providing accurate and consistent dosing of  polymers, pigments and additives in a variety of compounding applications. The ability of our volumetric feeders to deliver materials at a consistent rate helps optimize production lines by reducing waste and minimizing downtime. Powder coated steel or stainless steel construction makes them easy to clean, resistant to corrosion and ensures that there is no risk of contamination from the feeder itself. Features like quick-disconnect mechanisms simplify maintenance and cleaning procedures.

Furthermore, our volumetric screw feeders can be equipped with advanced control systems, such as programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and sensors, allowing for real-time monitoring and adjustment of feed rates. This adaptability ensures that any changes in production requirements can be accommodated promptly, without sacrificing quality or efficiency.

Whether the application requires a standard or custom volumetric feeding system, Scaletron’s engineers will help find the right solution to best meet your feeding needs.
