MECHATRON® GRAVIMETRIC AND VOLUMETRIC FEEDERS

The revolutionary MECHATRON® family of gravimetric and volumetric feeders, not only incorporates a superior feeder design that makes so much sense it could obsolete all others, but also brings the automation features that drastically reduce capital investment and installation costs.

MECHATRON® gravimetric feeders feature "Mechatronics," a design philosophy used to describe the total integration of mechanics and electronics. Motors and all control requirements are integrated and pre-wired in the feeder so that commissioning is accomplished by simply bringing power and communications to the unit.

Use the MECHATRON® feeder together with Schenck Accurate's DISOCONT® control electronics. Integrating your bulk solids metering process into your plant's supervisory control system becomes easier and more cost efficient than you ever imagined.
