Feeder adds imperial measurement option

April 5, 2023
Ampacet’s ColorSave 1000 single-component masterbatch and additive gravimetric feeder offers accurate, cost-effective dosing.

ColorSave 1000 Ampacet’s single-component masterbatch and additive gravimetric feeder uses an internal weighing hopper to provide resistance to vibration and mechanical shocks and ensure accurate weighing and dosing. Its output ranges from 0.44 pound per hour to 220.5 pounds per hour. It can be used by blow molders, injection molders and extrusion processors, and can store as many as 1,000 recipes.  

What’s new? The option to choose to work with imperial units, rather than metric units. Users now can select the injection weight in pounds instead of grams, for example. 

Benefits Highly accurate, cost-effective dosing.
