Simatek Drum Feeder with Forced Feeding System Simatek Bulk Systems introduces a new Forced Feeding System which – in the combination with other initiatives – makes pendulum bucket elevators very suited for conveying complex powders that are non-easy flowing, fragile, abrasive or explosive. By adding a screw feeder module to the patented Simatek Drum Feeder it is possible to secure a high filling degree of the elevator buckets. This feeding system is based on individual batch feeding of the elevator buckets without product spillage. In combination with the Simatek Drum Feeder it is possible to convey with elevator buckets without overlap. This is to eliminate mechanical contact between the buckets, friction and the use of guides. In traditional pendulum bucket elevators the buckets are suspended between parallel roller chains. However, certain powder types will generate significant wear and therefore roller chains are generally not the best solution for abrasive and fine powder types. However, when it comes to very abrasive products or applications for which chain lubrication is not an option, Simatek Bulk Systems offers bearing suspended buckets. With these buckets the wear on the roller chain is basically eliminated. To document the effect of conveying with a Forced Feeding System, clients are offered a free test run of their product in the Simatek Bulk Systems test center.
