CENTRIFEEDER ICV: Integrated Control Valve

Centrifeeder brand feeders allow flow measurement and control for continuous blending applcaitions or for batching applications
The CentriFeeder with Integrated Control Valve or ICV, accurately measures and controls the flow of any dry, free‐flowing solid. Using a highly customizable touch screen HMI integrated with a low rpm, AC, Brushless Servo, a PID control loop is established to control the ICV feeding our patented CentriFlow Meter. For precise measurement and control, an Integral Linear Position Sensor is used to regulate the blade’s position to within 1 part in 1000 (based on stroke). The blade’s movement can then be monitored via the CentriView Electronics, or read manually via the mechanical indicator on the exterior of the valve. For delicate products, the CentriFeeder with ICV is equipped with a Virtual Flow Stop function which stops flow with virtually no damage to your product. The outcome is an easily maintained, consistent flow that can, under some conditions, be controlled over a 100:1 range for both batching and ratio‐control applications.
