Fluff Reclaim Crammer Feeders
For over sixty years, Foremost has been supplying quality equipment designed to meet the needs of the plastics industry. Foremost currently offers three types of fluff feeders, each designed for specific applications.
These include the standard model CFV-2 with Vector drive, the CCF cone in cone feeder and the LPF Low Profile type feeder.
These series of crammer feeders are force feeding devices that are designed to compact fluffy materials at the extruder screw to provide a uniform density and relatively consistent head pressure.

Our crammer feeders employ the use of a Flux Vector drive, a true torque device which enables the system to feed up to a 50% fluff/pellet blend with a consistent material density at the extruder throat. The benefits of this crammer feeder include true cramming action which provides relatively constant head pressure throughout the range of normal extruder needs.

For applications that do not require true cramming, we offer a Cone-in-Cone Fluff Feeder which blends fluff and virgin resin material at the machine throat. This compact machine and its low profile counterpart allow fluff to be reclaimed without the use of expensive fluff/pellet blending equipment, simplifying your process.
The last feeder is the LPF type feeder which is the same as the cone in cone except that it is smaller for mounting in tight places.
