Material loader range extended

Material loader range extended

News 12.07.2018

At the 10th anniversary celebration of WITTMANN BATTENFELD staged in June 2018, WITTMANN presented its extended series of FEEDMAX basic material loaders. FEEDMAX basic is the ideal solution for medium-sized and large feed volumes. The components of FEEDMAX basic material loaders originate mainly from in-house sheet metal production and are put together according to customers’ specifications.

FEEDMAX basic material loaders from WITTMANN,now also available with volumes of 15 and 25 liters

FEEDMAX basic central material loaders with feed volumes of three and six liters have been on the market for a number of years already. From now on, WITTMANN is also offering appliances with 15 and 25 liters capacity. These new models now make it possible to connect material loaders from this series with larger drying hoppers or gravimetric blender systems with higher material throughputs as well.

All parts of the FEEDMAX range which come into contact with the material to be processed are made of stainless steel, and the central part is connected to the pedestal by a clamping ring. The flow of granulate into the material loader can be optimized by simply twisting the top part of the appliance.

The standard version with a comparatively high wall thickness ensures that the material inlet of a FEEDMAX can also be exposed to freely flowing abrasive granulates right from the start and without exception. Its cast stainless steel inlet can be equipped with different inlet valves. A sealing surface on the vacuum stopper ensures reliable functionality on the vacuum side of the appliance. The lids of the larger models are also very easy to open, since there are no hoses in the way.

Setting the materials handling period with a potentiometer is also very simple. In combination with a blower station, it is possible to handle both long and short transport distances. The handling period can be adjusted very quickly to changed conditions.

Several appliances can be connected with each other and operated jointly via a central operating unit, which then makes it possible to set up a small central material handling system.

The status of every FEEDMAX is easily visible, and from a distance. The bright ambiLED status display signals any conditions which may present problems, such as lack of material.

The new FEEDMAX basic material loaders with 15 and 25 liters capacity can be used for material throughputs from about 50 to 100 kg/h, and be operated with blower stations of different outputs.
