About ALFRA FCDc

Robust & Compact

Combined high throughput with outstanding accuracy, the ALFRA FCDc combines ingredients from up to 12 silos automatically. The little brother of the FCD is more compact, robust and has a larger weighing hopper, an interesting choice!

This highly productive machine, by its larger weighing hopper, features our unique dosing slide, which ensures that dosing and weighing is no longer the factory bottleneck. Uniquely, it eliminates labor-intensive and error-prone hand dosing – and the alternative of a separate machine for small amounts – by handling from 50 gram right up to 100 kg in a single machine.

Design features like an in-built dust extractor help ensure a clean workplace with minimum or even zero cross contamination. Cleaning, inspection and maintenance are all simple, and running costs are low.

Technical Specs
Dosing range 50 g to 100 kg

Pioneering Dosing Slide

KSE's pioneering dosing slide makes fundamental improvements over traditional dosing systems using screw drives. It has few moving parts for easy maintenance and long life (>20 years). It delivers raw materials with greater speed and accuracy, and has an enormous dynamic flow range (1:1000).

The unique KSE dosing slide maintains the all-important First-In-First-Out material flow, eliminating deadzones in the silo. with its very large discharge area it is highly effective at avoiding bridging and rat holing. Vertical delivery means no product damage or compaction.

ALFRA dose&weigh Software

The embedded ALFRA dose&weigh software uses historical data to start the coarse dosing and then adjusts the fine product flow profile dynamically, achieving up to 20% more throughput – even for materials with varying flow characteristics. The improved accuracy saves raw materials, while batch times are shorter and more predictable. Now, materials dosing is no longer a process bottleneck!
