DDSR20 hygienic design

Continually feeding 50 grams per hour is a great challenge. In the pharmaceutical and food industries metering the tiniest amounts of active substances and additives belongs to the agenda. Brabender Technologie has developed the DDSR20 stirring agitator feeder in hygienic design for these special applications. Precision was the top priority in the development process.

The innovations at a glance

  • Innovation 1: The drive consists of two servomotors which activate the stirring agitator and screws separately with independent speed settings. 
    Benefit: The effectiveness of the bulk ingredients agitation is thereby greatly increasing. 
  • Innovation 2: Multiple-flight dual concave screws 
    Benefit: an even feed consistency at low speed
  • Innovation 3: a load cell with an internal resolution of four million to one 
    Benefit: the greatest possible feeding accuracy
  • Innovation 4: the new sealing system consisting of a PTFE four-lip seal 
    Benefit: improved sealing

Hygienic design for less downtime

The compact device does not have edges, corners or undercuts due to its hygienic design. Its smooth surfaces enable rapid and complete cleaning. The whole item that is in contact with the product can also be removed and changed with just a wingnut and without using any tools. It is therefore possible to directly change feeders with different bulk ingredients very quickly. 

In a continuous production process, it is even more important to keep the downtime of the system as low as possible during a product change or for cleaning processes. With the DDSR20 in hygienic design, Brabender Technologie is supplying an innovative dependable high precision feeder for applications in the pharmaceutical and food industries which combine technology expertise with a competitive price.
