Horizontal Bale Feeders
Designed to Process Full Rubber Bales for Pelletizing or Compounding
Bonnot developed the Horizontal Bale Feeder to ingest high viscosity rubbers, including full bales, and process them into pellets or directly feed a compounding extruder. The Bonnot exclusive dual drive system effectively ingests the rubber and delivers a controlled output. The Horizontal can limit the output variation to +/- 5%. If your formula requires less variation, the unit can be configured with a gear pump to achieve an output variation of +/- 1%. The Horizontal design is available in a variety of sizes depending on your need. The latest generation of the Horizontal incorporates a pressure sensitive screw geometry to allow speed control utilizing a pressure feedback loop. The design has also been enhanced with more maintenance friendly features such as the modular crossover.
