For an enjoyable worry-free experience
New weigh-belt feeder for the food industry: Brabender Technologie focuses on an easy-clean design and gentle bulk material handling. This way fruit stays in form!
When chocolate fans bite into a chocolate bar containing whole hazelnuts and raisins, they rarely think about how the nuts and fruits got there. Consumers do not have to worry about their health either when consuming chocolate. That’s all taken care of during the production process.
Special feeders are required to conserve the natural shape of ingredients while meeting high hygiene standards and are used to add formulation-compliant admixtures. Brabender Technologie is proud to launch a new weigh-belt feeder, the DBW-G1-350 HYD Hygienic Design model, on the market to handle these food industry feed processes.
Preventive action to guard against contamination
The new weigh-belt feeder is an innovative addition to our product range for the food industry. It was conceptually designed in cooperation with leading food producers strictly in accordance with “hygienic design” principles, factoring in the relevant food industry standards, guidelines and recommendations. All food ingredient contact parts for this model are made of stainless steel or food-grade plastics. These preventive measures and hygienic features restrict any contamination caused by microbiological, chemical or physiological contaminants.
In addition, the DBW-G1-350 HYD weigh-belt feeder features an easy-clean stainless steel housing. Careful attention has also been put into ensuring weld seams are polished, non-porous and thoroughly penetrated as well as to prevent cavities. The weigh-belt feeder’s innovative design makes cleaning an effortless routine – easy access to all food contact areas in just a few simple steps.
The new weigh-belt feeder is powered by a totally enclosed non-ventilated geared motor with smooth finish, a standard design of which complies with food industry hygiene requirements. It can easily cope with quantities of up to several tons of bulk solids per hour and therefore features some very decent reserve capacity. As a weigh-belt feeder the DBW-G1-350 HYD is also particularly suitable for use as a gravimetric feeder of brittle bulk solids, such as flakes, almonds, chips etc. These admixtures are treated with care and not tampered by the feeding process. It is vital, especially in chocolate production, that fragile nuts, for example, retain their original shape without splintering.
Be it for cleaning or maintenance proposes, this weigh-belt feeder‘s accessible design enables belts to be replaced easily from the side and without the need of any tools. Available options include a flexible inlet sleeve with self-sealing spring steel closure and a mounted dust collection and discharge hopper are also available.
