Features

Standardized frame

Easily upgrade from 2000 to 3000 model to increase capacity

The stainless steel frame with sloped surfaces and mounted on wheels is the same for both the 2000 and 3000 models. Only the hopper, the mixer and the pump need to be upgraded.
Hopper lid

Enables easy access and flexible line layout

The hopper lid opens backwards, enabling ingredients to be added from the sides and front at a low re-feeding height. This provides easy access for operators to refill the hopper if required. Two dosers may be placed beside one another without obstructing the refill process.
Choice of augers

Ensure highly accurate dosing

As the auger turns, the ingredients are transferred at a steady dosing rate from the hopper to the pump. This unit can be fitted with a variety of different augers, and they are easy to change. This means your dosing is always optimized for the product type, size and required capacity range.
Lamella pump

Gentle handling keeps ingredients intact

Ingredients are fed into the lamella pump and the cavities between the lamellas carry the inclusions into the pressurized product zone. The pump is designed to transfer the ingredients gently into the pressurized base product, without breaking or damaging them, and without incorporating any air into the mixture.
Compact design

Maximizes space efficiency

Thanks to its small footprint (1.1 m2), the unit can be used in almost all production plants, even where space is limited.
