Barracuda Volumetric Auger Feeders

Dry Material Feeding with Volumetric Feeders

The Barracuda volumetric feeder is the heart of many of the material feeding systems provided by VeloDyne Systems.  As a stand-alone component, a properly sized volumetric feeder can precisely meter a wide variety of dry solid ingredients into a finished package.  As an integral part of a system, volumetric feeders can dispense ingredients to a food batching system, lime or polymer into a water treatment system or chemicals into a fertilizer blender.  When VeloDyne’s volumetric feeders are used with load cells and scales, they can perform loss in weight or gravimetric feeding operations, weighing the product as it is accurately dispensed and monitored with an integrated controls package.  Volumetric feeders are also known as screw feeders or volumetric auger feeders, as the common process is accurate delivery of dry solids. VeloDyne offers volumetric feeders in a variety of sizes and configurations, offering our customers an efficient solution to their product feeding requirements.  All of VeloDyne’s volumetric feeder models can be provided with a range of interchangeable auger sizes, product conditioning tooling and vibratory technology to enhance the feeding efficiency of our systems.  Equipment controls for our volumetric feeders range from manual variable speed drives to full integration with the project control panels.  VeloDyne’s volumetric feeders are design to operate as stand-alone units or with other auxiliary equipment such as; extension hoppers, manual bag unload stations or complete bulk bag installations.
