In June Thayer Scale shipped multiple units of its new LWF-MC-SV feeder to a global supplier of shredded cheese. The new sanitary vibratory feeder is ideally suited to gravimetrically deliver difficult-flowing ingredients and powders at low feed rates with up to a 100:1 turn-down. The system includes an integral hopper equipped with Thayer’s unique Spiralator flow-aid that provides gentle agitation to delicate materials ensuring consistent feed to the vibratory tray. The tray features a customizable bias-cut to provide uniform flow to a master ingredient stream being conveyed below the tray. The hopper and feeder are suspended on a fully mass-counterbalanced stainless steel weigh system to provide high sensitivity and immunity to noise and non-uniform shop floors. The system includes IP66-rated enclosures to support high-pressure cleaning processes.
