Volumetric dosing & mixing units
The SPECTROCOLOR V is a synchronous volumetric dosing station based on the loss-in-weight principle. Its excellent short and long term dosing accuracy ensures you the process reliability you need for continuous manufacturing.
Our unique gravity-mixing principle offers you a high consistency of mix for all the components before they reach the extruder. This plays a key role in guaranteeing you perfect plasticization and homogenization of the materials.
SPECTROCOLOR V doses and mixes all easy to normal flowing granular materials. Up to six dosing modules, supports both flood-fed and starve-fed extrusion.
Our unique gravity-mixing principle provides you a high level of mixing consistency without the need to mechanically mix. This plays a key role in achieving perfect plasticization and homogenization of the materials in the extruder.
Synchronous dosing offers you excellent recipe accuracy and reproducibility, which can be followed at any time.
Extremely compact construction due to the unique design of the supply hoppers. This allows you to install the station where many other similar units would not fit.
The dosing motors are swivel mounted and can be removed without tools. The motors are brushless and have integrated motor management which makes them maintenance free.
There are six different sizes of wear-resistant dosing screws available and they can be removed without the use of tools. The screws are inclined at an angle for a constant dosing flow insensitive to vibration. This gives you greater accuracy because machine movements have no effect on the dosing process and material slip on the screw is eliminated.
Cleaning and material changeovers are fast and require no tools. The quick-change system, compromised of a discharge slide gate for emptying materials, a removable supply hopper, a swivel mounted motor, and a dosing screw with a quick release connection, makes the unit easy to operate and saves you valuable time.
