Ever wonder how they get those wonderful little pieces of goodies inside of ice cream. You know those chunks of toffee, dark chocolate flakes, butterscotch pieces or coconut are fed into the ice cream making process by Vibra Screw’s AccuFeed screw feeder, at many well know ice cream makers. They chose the AccuFeed because of it’s ability to accurately meter many different types of ingredients and it is very easy to clean when product changes are made.
Alexco Environmental offered an onsite solution including a 75-ton silo and feed system to feed hydrated lime to treat 200 to 800 gallons per minute of influent. Alexco contacted Vibra Screw Inc. of Totowa, New Jersey, for expertise on equipment for handling bulk powders to see what was needed and what could be shipped within a week. The company offered a volumetric screw feeder with variable speed drive and a controller with 4-20 mA remote speed input, which would allow the lime feed to automatically adjust to the changing pH of the influent. The higher the acidity, the more lime was continuously fed. The system would also treat the heavy metals
The system was up and running within weeks. It operates around the clock, even through the tough Colorado winter.

Totowa, NJ: Vibra Screw Inc., a leader in bulk solids processing equipment, has expanded its highly successful Versifeeder line to include multiple feed head units. Now processors requiring several feed points of a particular bulk material can have the same high accuracy and flexibility for which the Versifeeder has come to be known. The multi-head Versifeeder can provide the same or different rates of feed from each outlet. A common hopper is oversized to provide ample capacity and includes an integral vibrator to insure positive flow to the feed screws. Controls are provided to operate all or individual screws as needed. Incorporating multiple feed heads in a common unit saves space over separate feeders. Vibra Screw manufactures high quality equipment to store, discharge, meter, convey, size and blend dry bulk materials. The company’s product line includes bulk bag unloaders and fillers, volumetric and gravimetric feeders, bin activators, live bottom bins, vibrating feeders and blenders.
