Economical Feeding of Colorants, Additives
Conair Feeders provide injection molders and extruders with a versatile, economical way to volumetrically meter colorants or other additives into the ﬂow of virgin material directly at the throat of the processing machine.
By metering additives directly at the throat, greater savings in material inventory and colorant can be achieved over traditional pre-colored or centrally blended material schemes.
Models for low/high throughput
Model BFS and BFH feeders feature a compact size for metering additives to machines down to 0.01 gram per second or up to 160 lb. per hour. Model BFH provides high throughput metering up to 100 grams per second or 800 lb. per hour.
Injection or extrusion control
The precision injection control provides on-demand metering, based on a signal from the press. The extrusion control is designed to operate continuously with the extruder.
Easy, no-tools cleanout
BFH models have removable supply hoppers and augers to allow fast clean-out for color changes. The standard BFS model has a stationary hopper, a removable supply hopper option is available.
