Barracuda 1000A Volumetric Auger Feeder

Dry Material Feeding

Velodyne Systems’ Barracuda 1000A volumetric screw feeder incorporates advanced features to ensure less down time and optimized dry chemical metering. Though the Barracuda 1000A is able to handle a variety of powders, pellets, flakes and chips in a small footprint, its main design purpose is to accurately feed potassium permanganate. The belly of the hopper on the Barracuda 1000A is set closer to the auger than other models. Potassium permanganate packs together very easily so there is less material below the auger to bind up and reduce the augers performance. The 1000A utilizes a direct-drive motor and gearbox assembly for fewer moving parts (no pulleys, chains or belts), resulting in reduced mean time between failures. This generates cost savings through increased feed rate accuracy. The unintimidating feeder design allows the tooling, the auger and spout to be removed with the simple turn of a wrench.. A variety of options and configurations are available to fit any unique application point, making the Barracuda 1000A auger feeder a complete chemical metering solution.
