12.02.2018 Accurate feeding together with even distribution

Gericke (see above) has just introduced EvenDos®, a concept which combines precision feeding with uniform distribution. The company explains that increasing cost pressures, especially in the production of consumer goods, in combination with higher complexity of recipes and production techniques have resulted in new process equipment requirements. By integrating two normally separated production steps into one machine, investments can be reduced as well as space requirements. 
In most cases it has until now been common practice to separate accurate dosing and the even distribution of solid additions into two process steps, using two different machines. The combination of high-precision Gericke feeders with the specifically developed EvenDos function integrates these process steps efficiently. The key component is a special dosing tool, which allows for even distribution of the fed ingredients over a defined distance or surface area. For example, ingredients such as salt or seasonings are in many cases added after primary processes such as baking, drying or conditioning. Often the product will be transported on a belt (for example pasta, biscuits and extruded preparations), or coated in a drum and are required to be evenly spread with a defined quantity of an ingredient. EvenDos feeding tools have been designed to fulfill this type of task.
