Schenck Process has announced the latest extension to its MULTIDOS® weighfeeder range. MULTIDOS® VDP-C is a new range of medium-sized and compact apron weighfeeders mainly suitable for raw material feeding, hot clinker feeding and similar applications. With a completely enclosed design the MULTIDOS® VDP-C enables a cleaner installation environment, with no extra cost, while also allowing quick access for inspection by means of easy-to-remove covers. Alternatively, an open design is possible for permanently visible material feed. The kit structure of MULTIDOS® VDP-C enables installation in a total of 48 possible geometrical configurations to suit plant requirements. It can be installed on the ground or suspended under a bin. The chain used on the MULTIDOS® VDP-C is an enhanced version that can easily tolerate a drive torque four times higher than required. In addition, apron pans accept loads up to six times higher than the nominal load, for maximum robustness. So there are no compromises that need to be made when it comes to durability and reliability. Apron pans are available for fine grain material, and alternative designs for sticky and coarse material. The coarse material apron pans are made of HARDOX® steel for maximum strength and service life.
