Schenck Process introduced the ProFlex C100 feeder. The smallest of the company’s C series, it is comparatively lightweight and fits on small extruders. Up to five feeders can be grouped around an inlet of a lab- or small-size extruder.
The feeder is equipped with an integrated gearbox for turndown ratios of up to 1:120. It is NEMA drive-ready for compounding and masterbatch.
The ProFlex C feeding system is characterized by asymmetric design, steep hopper walls, encapsulated cabling, ease of management, and ease of maintenance, the company reported.
