The Star Feeder effectively meters the flow of materials to your screens and downstream processing equipment. The variable speed drive controller allows the Star Feeder to discharge at any desired rate. The hopper can be custom-designed to best suit the application type.

A newly constructed Star Feeder unit, staged in the Acrowood engineering shop, ready for shipping and deployment on-site at the pulp mill.
View from inside the top loading area of the Star Feeder where application materials accumulate and are steadily dispersed at the correct intervals for the downstream equipment processing, e.g. chip thickness screens.
The Star Feeder installed at this chip plant is mounted outside over-top of an Acrowood DiamondRoll Chip Thickness Screen. From this perspective the scale and magnitude of the Star Feeder can be appreciated.
