The Simatek Drum Feeder is now EU patented and currently patent pending in the USA and Chile. It is designed for feeding bulk products, such as aqua feed, pet food and other free flowing bulk products. It is based on a design, in which each bucket is suspended individually. The system provides a number of advantages over traditional designs improving capacity, reducing wear on moving parts and limiting the risk of malfuncion. The filling mechanism allows for each individual bucket to be filled to around 90 percent, compared to around 60 percent for traditional systems. This also makes it an obvious choice for retrofitting existing systems.
