General Information:

The ip3 is the highest level of performance and customization offered in a friction feeder. Five different discharge lengths are available including our flexible discharge. Washdown option is also available for food environments.

All of our ip3 friction feeders are powered by an 750 watt (one horsepower) brushless servo motor which is one of the best in the industry. This makes our feeders strong for the most demanding applications, with the reliability to provide years of uninterrupted service.
