Vario Dosage Container
Many years of experience have taught us that every plant has its own individual challenges due to such things as local conditions, substrate type, the size of the plant, etc.
With the Vario dosage container’s modular design, in 7 m³–325 m³ sizes, almost anything is possible.
An electrically powered hydraulic unit is used to drive the Vario push components.
The standard system comes equipped with a Siemens S7 that permits autonomous control. It can also be integrated into a new or existing control system.
The container is impervious to fluids. Its modular construction allows it to be expanded later.
The dissolving auger permits even, unobstructed dosing, even with media that are cumbersome to transport.
TRANSMISSION & MOTORS
We use planetary gear technology, which provides a high degree of efficiency and is resistant to wear and tear.
The stainless steel piston rods in the hydraulic cylinders are equipped with a dual seal, which prevents the medium from mixing with the hydraulic oil.
VARIO PUSH COMPONENTS
Vario’s conveyor rails are made of stainless steel and plastic. The outstanding efficiency and stability of this technology is unrivalled in the entire branch.
DISCHARGE SCEW CONVEYOR
The position of the integrated discharge screw conveyor allows for even delivery of the medium.
One of its special features is our Vario conveyor rails. Their alternating conveyor mechanism allows for the steady, even discharge of materials. When the conveyor elements are moving forward, the push components unfold to powerfully drive the materials in the output direction. When the rails are moving backwards, the push components lie flat and slide through the material with very little resistance, allowing very little material to be pulled backwards.
In its standard configuration, the Vario dosage container can produce an output of up to 20 m³/h, depending on the medium. You can find further output performance statistics under Equipment and Accessories.
The Vario dosage container is available in left-hand, right-hand and centre output options.
The Vario can be integrated with all the usual subsequent equipment, for example:
- Conveyor belt
- Crushing equipment
- Screw technology
Standard Sizes 7m³ -325m³
The modular cartridge construction design in small increments makes almost anything possible.
Equipment size / model designation is presented as follows. (See model 212)
The first number indicates the number of conveyor rails, width of the machine.
(in the example of Model 212: 2 conveyor rails; each further conveyor rail +0.7 m)
The second number indicates the number of cassettes along the length of the machine.
(in the example of Model 212: 1 cassette; each further cassette +3 m)
The third number indicates the number of cassettes along the height of the machine.
(in the example of Model 212: 2 cassettes; each further cassette +0.7 m)
Equipment and Accessories
Raising Output Performance
The standard configuration can deliver up to 20 m³/h, depending on the substrate.
Output performance can be increased to up to 100 m³/h.
Partially or Fully Stainless Steel and Steel Models
The standard steel model (only for non-corrosive media!)
In the steel model, the entire inner container, i.e. all parts that come into contact with the medium are made of steel, as are all parts of the conveyor equipment and the screws.
The partially stainless steel model:
All the inner parts of the floor and the container’s first C-profile ring, which come into contact with the medium, are made of stainless steel and plastic, as are all parts of the conveyor equipment and the screws. All other parts are made of powder-coated steel.
The fully stainless steel model:
In the fully stainless steel model, the entire inner container, i.e. all parts that come into contact with the medium, is made of stainless steel and plastic, as are all parts of the conveyor equipment and the screws.
The Vario dosage container is available in other colours, on request.
- C profile (steel): moss green (RAL 6005).
- C profile (stainless steel): aluminium white (RAL 9006).
- Substructure and side supports: zinc plated
- Motors, transmission crossbeams, cylinders etc.: deep black (RAL 9005)
Control Cabinet Roof
If the equipment is installed outside of the container, a control cabinet roof can be fitted, to protect the control cabinet from weather damage.
Filling Status Monitoring
To allow you to monitor filling status, we offer the appropriate system for each medium. Used in combination with our Vario control system, this ensures precision dosage of the medium.
