Live Bottom Feeders
Live bottom feeders are designed to convey and meter large quantities of materials in a very efficient manner. Live Bottom Screw Feeders have a flood loaded inlet of two or more screws aligned side by side and are specifically designed to meter the product at a fixed or variable rate A flood loaded condition is usually identified by the bulk materials being stored initially in a hopper, silo or bin and then transported from these containers by the screw feeder. Normally the feeder screw will have a variable pitch under the inlet and then the balance of the flights will be full pitch.
There are three basic Screw Feeder designs:
  • Variable Pitch Screw
  • Mass Flow Cone Screw
  • Tapered Flight Screw & Trough Combination
Each of these designs complement the material characteristic requirements and convey the materials very efficiently. Our experienced Sales and Engineering staff are waiting and prepared to help you with all your material handling equipment needs.
