Automatic Metering Screw Feed System for Mixing and Dispensing Dry Powders into a Secondary Process from FBIC Super Sacks

The Model VMF-28 BB Volumetric Screw Feeder with FIBC Bulk Bag (Super Sack) Unloader has been designed to be an “all in one” option for adding an in-line dry chemical addition process fed by bulk bags. The VMF-28 BB is capable of accurately dispensing many common chemicals found in the water and waste water industries, as well as, a host of other industrial chemicals directly into a supply line. The VMF-28 BB is the perfect choice when you need to control the addition of medium to larger doses of dry chemicals to a process. To meet customer demands Scaletron has combined a rugged screw feeder, programmable control module, a number of standard upgrades, and an FIBC bulk bag (super sack) hoist or forklift style unloader/discharger and then mounted it all to a rugged tower frame. If you are looking to do a “one and done install” for a bulk bag dry chemical feeding system, then Scaletron is sure the VVMF-28 BB will meet and exceed your chemical feeding needs.
