CENTRIFEEDER VIB: ELECTRONICS

Centrifeeder VIB brand feeders allow for flow measurement and vibratory control for continuous blending applications or for batching applications
The CentriFeeder line of feeders allow for both an accurate, real-time flow measurement, as well as near perfect control of flow rate and total. For blending applications, control the flow rate of an individual ingredient, or combine several CentriFeeders for near perfect recipe control. If you are controlling ingredients entering a batching process, use the CentriFeeder for controlling the total of one or more ingredients entered into the batch.

The CentriFeeder™ with Integrated Vibratory Control accurately measures and controls the flow of any dry, free‐flowing solid that can be transported via a vibratory conveyor. Through the use of a highly customizable touch screen HMI, a PID control loop is established that regulates the vibratory conveyor feeding our patented CentriFlow® Meter. The outcome is an accurate, easily maintained, consistent flow that can be used for mixing, ratio control or even recipe based blending.

CENTRIFEEDER VIB REMOTE ELECTRONICS


The CentriFeeder Digital Electronics is a remote electronics package that comes standard with every CentriFeeder. The electronics allows the user to enter a set-point based on either flow rate or totalization and to control the flow of product to that set-point. The standard electronics cable that comes with each meter, measures 10 feet in length, but the length of the cable can be customized for installation in remote locations such as control rooms which can be several hundred feet from the meter's installation location. Below are just some of the remote electronics package's features and benefits:
