ConsiGma® Compact Feeder (CF) Test Rig

The ConsiGma® CF20 test rig is a standalone module that allows you to characterize the feeding behavior of your products during the early stages of R&D.

ConsiGma Feeder Test Rig
Feeding and dosing the individual powders of a formulation is one of the critical unit operations in a continuous manufacturing process. Therefore, the ability to characterize the feeding behavior of your materials at an early stage is key.

The ConsiGma® CF20 test rig is a standalone module that enables you to check feeding behaviors at throughputs between 0.025 and 60.00 kg/h (depending on the product). 

Regardless of the final purpose (fully integrated continuous line or individual unit operation), this unit is targeted at all companies who have an interest in integrating a continuous feeding step into their operations.
