SPECTROFLEX V is a volumetric screw dosing unit with flexible PU dosing hopper. It is ideally suited for dosing powders, pellets, regrind, granulates, flakes and fibers in continuous processes.

Dosing of Non-Free Flowing Materials   
The dosing screws and the intensity of the discharge aid (massage rollers) of the SPECTROFLEX V can be adjusted to the type of material.

Exchange Module
The exchange modules can be swapped easily and without any tools. So, material changeovers can be made quickly and without previous clean-down of the dosing hopper.
The exchange modules come in different versions, equipped with either single, double, spiral or auger screws, allowing the user to configure the dosing unit for nearly any type of material in a matter of minutes

No Mechanical Agitators
Thanks to the massage rollers you don’t need to use mechanical agitators which are in direct material contact. So even difficult and fragile materials will not be damaged

Quick Material Exchange
You can install a hopper loader directly onto the lid of the You can install a hopper loader directly onto the lid of the supply hopper which does not need to be removed even during material changes.

Interchangeable Dosing Screws
The pluggable screws can be exchanged in a matter of minutes. This makes adjustments of the throughput easy and shortens production downtime tremendously!

Active Filling of The Dosing Screw  
The massage roller technology creates an active filling of the dosing screw without a mechanical agitator needing to be in the material flow.

Elliptical Massage Rollers  
In contrast to common massage paddles, which are normally used with other dosing hoppers on the market, the SPECTROFLEX V uses elliptical rollers.  The specific design of the oscillating massage rollers increases the lifespan of the polyurethane dosing hopper.
Powered by an independent motor, the elliptical massage rollers can be set to 48 different settings, guaranteeing you optimal dosing for various materials.
