Weighbelt Feeder Modernization

* Cost Effective
* Improve Accuracy
* Reduce Maintenance
* Avoid Component Obsolescence

Many of the older mechanical and electronic weigh feeders still operating today have outdated equipment such as SCR’s, DC motors, controls, gearbox drives, etc. If they are still operating, why should they be upgraded? Modern components reduce wear and maintenance items, are more efficient and breathe new life into old feeders. As a result, an upgraded feeder can offer the benefits of improved accuracy and reduced maintenance without the cost of a new machine.Not a MERRICK feeder? Not a problem, we provide upgrades for all makes and models of weightbelt feeders.
