Marel's CompactFeeder 350 mm /1700 L buffer type C is designed with a buffer section with a built-in agitator, ensuring a steady feeding to the horizontal take-away screw. The horizontal screw runs in the full length of the buffer and feeds the product into a vertical screw, elevating the product to the actual discharge height.
The CompactFeeder/Buffer is especially suitable for storing of fresh minced meat. The machine is equipped with wheels, which permits a flexible factory layout.
Optionally, the vertical screw conveyor can be equipped with a pneumatic distribution chute system.
As a precaution, the CompactFeeder is equipped with a "grill" safety rail on the buffer. Doors, which can be opened, are mounted with safety switches. The buffer is also equipped with a step for inspection of product. Since the electric control unit is mounted on the machine, it is only a matter of plugging it in.
The robust machine housing is made in heavy duty AISI 304 stainless steel and designed without corners or edges in order to facilitate cleaning. Likewise, easy dismount of horizontal screw and quick opening of vertical screw makes cleaning easier. Thus the machine meets the strictest hygiene requirements.
The CompactFeeder can be a stand alone machine, or be part of an integrated processing line.
