Fastfeed Specifications

The Fastfeed is unlike other powder induction systems, which typically rely on an eductor, venturi or negative pressure generated by a high-speed mix head. With two models available, the Fastfeed uses a high performance powder suction pump that vacuum conveys powders or solids inline up to 450 pounds per minute, including hard to handle gums, starches and carbomers. Designed to allow for continuous powder delivery even as the viscosity and solids level increases.
