Dividing Heads

DIVIDING HEADS

For the right application, a diving head can be the perfect tool to increase fill rates. Most often, dividing heads are utilized for applications involving very free flowing products. The dividing heads can be made into segments of 2, 3 or 4 and are designed to sit below the auger in a free flow tooling set-up. The dividing head is ideally situated directly underneath the auger, perfectly centered. As the auger dispenses the product, the dividing head equally catches the product being discharged from the spinner plate. The product runs from the diving head through it’s individual nozzles into the container allowing the packager to fill multiple containers at once with only one auger. Assuming that product accuracy is acceptable, the dividing head provides a cheap and easy mechanical way increase production rates.
