Feed system with side feeders

In compounding processes, fillers or fibers is often fed in downstream. This is carried out typically by side feeders. These can be equipped with shafts one on top of another, enabling them to feed additives into the product flow over a very short process length, if necessary even from both sides simultaneously.

However, as an alternative, a conventional solution with side feeder screws adjacent to one another is also available. Side feeders are then flange-mounted on a 6D barrel.
