Model 905-18 Volumetric Feeder Meters Strand-Type Materials

April 18, 2018

The Model 905-18 Feeder is specifically designed to meter “strand-type” materials that contain small amounts of moisture, such as fiberglass, in lengths ranging from 0.4 to 0.75 in. is available.


An integral, specially designed 5 cubic foot supply hopper ensures reliable product flow into a uniquely configured distribution trough and onto a slow-moving metering/conveyor belt where two pile depth control and leveling mechanisms produce a consistent depth and width of material on the belt. Both the metering/conveyor belt and the two leveling mechanisms operate independently in a proportional relationship to each other that is powered by heavy-duty variable speed gearmotors. In addition, a rotating dispersing mechanism, operating at the discharge end of the belt, produces a uniform flow of material off the belt. The output feed rate is controlled by the speed of the belt.


Gravimetric metering is obtained by utilizing the Model 905-18 Feeder as the metering mechanism of an Acrison Model 402 ‘Weight-Loss’ weighing system.


The entire feeder assembly is manufactured in 304 stainless steel, including the feeder’s supply hopper. The feeder is completely self-emptying, very easy to clean, requires minimal maintenance, and is virtually silent when operating. Controls are furnished in a NEMA 12 enclosure.

  • Entire structure of the feeder's conveyor belt assembly, rotating components, and supply hopper are constructed in 304 stainless steel.
  • Multi-ply conveyor belt is constructed of durable white Hycar.
  • Supplied with a 5 cubic foot supply hopper with cover and inlet.
  • Controls supplied in a NEMA 12 Enclosure as standard.
  • Uniquely Configured Belt Feeder - maintains a specific pile depth and width on the conveyor belt producing a specific volumetric discharge based on the speed of the belt.
  • Self-Emptying Design – easy to clean, simple to operate, silent when operating and requires very little maintenance
  • All Steel Construction – provides long-term durability with minimal maintenance requirements
  • Heavy-Duty Gearmotors – power each of the feeder’s functioning rotating mechanisms. All gearmotors are permanently lubricated.
