The new quick-cleaning series for CFH and CFM rotary feeders ensures fast batch changes
The tendency for smaller batches is still present in nearly all sectors of the process industry. This is reflected in the compounding sector as well where the users’ demands on product variety continue to increase. This results in more frequent dye or ingredient changes and, consequently, plant adaptations or more frequent cleaning of the components used. Easily accessible and easy to clean components are therefore necessary in order to greatly reduce the times between the batch changes.
To meet these requirements, Zeppelin System has decided to optimize its recently launched range of rotary feeders CFH and CFM once more: the new SR series (SR stands for quick cleaning). Thanks to its design, the rotor can be swiveled and extracted to achieve faster batch changes and facilitate its cleaning as well as that of the rotary feeder. Furthermore, the easy access facilitates inspections of the component and monitoring of the cleaning results.
The rotary feeder is available in stainless steel, aluminium or with wear protection such as ceramic lining. At the moment, SR versions of the CFH and CFM series are available in sizes 160, 200, 250 and 320. Models with larger diameters will soon be updated as well.
The CFH and CFM series of rotary feeders offer numerous other advantages such as high energy efficiency, robustness and the modular design which enables using the same housing for both the high pressure as well as the medium pressure rotary feeder. This provides the user with more flexibility when modifying the system or changing products.
