Commercial and standard duty micro ingredient systems are accurate to within two one-hundredths of a pound. Systems offer VFD drive with PLC interface. Up to 24 six cubic foot hoppers available in any configuration to fit the application.

Commercial Micro Skid


Standard Features:

Micro bin drive assembly

-Gearbox and motor drive assembly can be rotated either in the up or down position

-Removing the auger, motor, and gearbox assembly for maintenance or cleaning is quick as one, two, and three! (1) Unplug the motor, (2) remove four bolts holding gearbox bracket, and (3) pull whole assembly out.

Micro hopper discharge

-UHMW bearing on the micro hopper discharge end, provides lubrication free and maintenance free operation

-Flexible spouting from the micro hopper to the drum housing provides a dust free environment, along with the ability to adapt any hopper on the micro skid with an individual bin weighing system.

-To assure long and maintenance free life, both ends of the screw conveyor are supported by bearings.

-The micro bins come standard with half pitch flighting in the bin area and a double full pitch flighting in the feeder auger discharge. The half pitch flighting insures a consistent flow of difficult to handle material from each bin. The double pitch flighting on the discharge end protects against ingredient free flowing after the feeder auger has stopped.

VFD and PLC Panel

-Interfaces with most batching controllers

-Allows the operator to select individual high and low speed setting for each micro bin conveyor

-Detects equipment failure and batching interlocks

-Voltages available:

>Power: 230 VAC, 3 Phase, 60 Hz (Standard)

>Power: 460 VAC, 3 Phase, 60 Hz (Optional)

>Power: 380 VAC, 3 Phase, 50 Hz (Optional)

>Power: 575 VAC, 3 Phase, 60 Hz (Optional)
