Gericke presented a new twin screw dosage unit named GZD 200. This device was specially designed for applications with small throughput, company speakers says.
This layout makes it well suited for the dosage of pasty and semi–fluid as well as adhesive bulk products. Also products with a high percentage of fine, powdery parts can be well processed, the manufacturer states. Only little pulsation of the discharge pipe with low revolution speeds, polished surfaces, specially finished sealing grooves and the easy cleanability are further advantages of the GZD.
The smooth setup without crevices and gaps prevents the settling of residues within the drum. All components that are in touch with the surface are made from stainless steel. Gericke states the unit to be compliant to all requirements of the pharmaceutical and food industry. The GZD 200 works within a throughput range of 0.2 up to 30 liters per hour.
The unit can be easily assembled and disassembling, allowing for flexible applications and quick product changes. Controlling and operations are done usinthe company's EasyDos dosage and weighing control system. Gericke manufactures dosage screws of different geometries and properties so that the GZD 200 can be adjusted to the customers individual needs. Sealing air locks, safety switches for the removal of the through, different gear transmissions and an ATEX compliant setup are available as options.
