The BSP feeders do not use the usual screws/augers, belts or vibratory trays to convey the material. The feeder utilizes positive displacement action to feed free flowing materials with astounding accuracy, offering uniform discharge, consistent volume and gentle handling.

The BSP feeders have vertical rotating discs that create a product lock-up zone, conveying the material smoothly from storage hopper to discharge outlet, achieving true linear mass flow.

Utilizing a simple design and the principle known as "lock up" (see demonstration), the material in the feeder is moved together in true positive displacement, producing excellent linearity and breakthrough accuracy levels.

With no pockets or screws and only one moving part, the compact feeder is cleaned in seconds, making it ideal for applications with frequent material changes.

K-Tron provides four BSP Feeder base models:

  • BSP-100: features a single feeding duct formed by two rotating discs. It includes a conical inlet transition piece which can be combined with a variety of standard extension hoppers.
  • BSP-135: a slightly larger version of the BSP-100, with all the same features except that it has three feeding ducts instead of one.
  • BSP-150-S: designed with four feeding ducts, and is based on the same technology as the BSP-100, but manufactured of stainless steel.
  • BAP-150-P: a 5-duct version based on the same technology as the BSP-100, but manufactured of carbon fiber reinforced plastic. It also includes an inlet transition piece, a low power DC motor and a removable stainless stell material discharge chute.
