Low Feed Rate Feeder Designed for Pharmaceutical Processes


Pharmaceutical Technology
Volume 37, Issue 12, pp. 14
The PureFeed DP-4 is a gravimetric feeder that can meter dry pharmaceutical powders at feed rates as low as 20 grams/hour. Jet milling, continuous blending, packaging, coating, and ingredient weighing are applications suited for the DP-4.  A feature of the PureFeed DP-4 is a speed controlled, inert ceramic feed disc. Positioned at the base of a cylindrical, electropolished stainless steel material storage chamber, the disc rotates to discharge tiny amounts of material, continuously and pulsation free over a 20- to 2000-gram feed rate range. All connecting pieces are secured using sanitary quick release clamps and the inlet and discharge of the DP-4 feeder can be sealed to ensure containment during transportation.
