The Rotofeeder
The Paramount Roto-Feeder design replaces problematic conveyor belts beneath production machines. Its secret lies in a regulated transfer of waste into a single high velocity conveying duct, serving up to ten converting machines. The waste from each converting machine is fed through the Roto-Feeder directly into a main air duct mounted in a floor trench below the converting machines. The conveying fan can be located within a pit in a convenient location at the end of the row of production machines or even remotely. The system avoids the need for noisy fans adjacent to each production machine or belt conveyors that can jam with waste. Roto-Feeder systems are sealed negative pressure units that ensure all waste dust entering the system remains there, not escaping into your plant.

Because the waste is extracted by ducted air, the Roto-Feeder system can include changes of direction, so machines can be positioned to best fit your plant layout, not forced into a straight line as with a belt conveyor. This allows the design of your plant to be simplified and space saved.

A system of Roto-Feeders on a single high capacity conveying duct can replace up to ten separate conveying fans and dust systems. This leads to substantial simplification, cost and power savings as well as reduced maintenance requirements. Conventional belt conveyors are notoriously difficult to maintain and over the years tend to suffer from poor reliability, high maintenance costs and downtime - problems which increase dramatically for longer belts. Roto-Feeders have only one slow moving part in contact with waste. These units provide maximum reliability with low maintenance requirements, allowing production machines to operate at maximum capacity, 24 hours a day. A single large diameter high power conveying duct ensures there are no blockages to the waste.

"House-keeping" dust suction points, allowing operators to efficiently remove dust from the machine, can be readily incorporated - a very useful facility paricularly within a food quality box plant.
