PA-04/H Automatic Feeder

PA-04/H automatic feeder is dedicated to automatic dispensing of small objects, in particular pills, capsules, and small mechanical components. The feeder ensures regular feeding of the elements onto the weighing pan to which it is connected. PA-04/H, connected to RADWAG-manufactured laboratory balance, enables quick statistical control in accordance with strict pharmaceutical requirements.

Design and functionality:

The mechanical design of the device is based on the cylindrical vibrating feeder with a conical or stepped storage bin offered in the stainless steel version. Due to its application in the pharmaceutical industry, the feeder’s storage bin is continuously welded both inside and outside. The feeder is appropriate for dosing pills of diameter ranging from 3 to 25 mm, round and oblong, as well as details of similar shapes and dimensions. Pills or other elements are led along the axis.

The device is equipped with powder-coated steel housing and a stainless steel cover. The storage bin features a transparent cover that allows the verifying quantity of remaining elements.

RADWAG-manufactured Y series laboratory balances enable control over the PA-04/H feeder. The balance controls dosing start and stop, and adjusts objects feeding frequency. The elements dispensed to the balance (e.g.: pills) are weighed and statistically assessed. The feeder dispenses the next object as soon as it receives an adequate command from the balance.

PA-04/H features diodes indicating a connection to the mains, device operation, and vibration level. Additionally, the feeder's keyboard enables emptying the storage bin and adjusting the frequency of element dosing by changing the vibration level.

Feeder-balance cooperation is enabled by Mass control mode.

PA-04/H cooperates with the following laboratory balances:

  • XA 4Y analytical balance

Application

The automatic feeder is dedicated to the automatic dispensing of small objects onto the weighing pan of the RADWAG-manufactured balance to which it is connected. The feeder ensures regular feeding of the elements in accordance with determined time intervals.

The feeder is appropriate for dosing pills of diameter ranging from 3 to 25 mm, round and oblong, as well as details of similar shapes and dimensions.

Operation and Compatibility

The PA-04/H feeder cooperates with XA 4Y and AS 3Y analytical balances and PS 3Y precision balances. Both the feeder and the balance are automated devices. The balance carries out analysis of dosed elements and sends a signal to the feeder to dispense subsequent elements. The feeder features diodes, signaling its operation, and a keypad allowing control of the process. The automatic feeder is equipped with the function of automatic emptying of the storage bin.

Vibrating Feeder

Cylindrical vibrating feeder with storage bin enables safe and precise dosing of elements. The storage bin has a conical and stepped shape and is continuously welded. The stainless steel surface of adequate roughness reduces elements grating during the dosing process.

Design

The device is equipped with powder-coated steel housing and a stainless steel cover. The storage bin features a transparent lid that allows the verifying the number of remaining elements.
