The Automatic Powder Dispenser (APD) has been designed for those applications requiring highly accurate and repeatable batching results and at the same time it provides a clean and safe working environment. Based on proven technology licensed from Ciba Geigy, the APD can handle most solids, from fine powders to granules.

It provides a new dispensing technology allowing much higher accuracies than was previously possible with conventional powder delivery systems.


  • Modular design, easy to expand
  • Easy to operate
  • Low and easy maintenance
  • dust collecting system at scale
  • Self-learning Camelot dispensing software


  • Dispensing liquid dyes


Powder is dispensed by rotating valves onto a scale that moves underneath the silo’s.

The valves are operated by a control unit that moves above the tanks in X,Y and Z direction.


With accuracies of 0.01 gram for fine powders, batch sizes of 1kg to 50kg can be made with formulas from almost any number of powders (and liquids, if included).

Safe and Clean

Each silo can be separately filled via a filtered vacuum system to ensure a safe and clean environment. The filter is automatically cleaned by air pressure.

The scale is equipped with a dust collecting system that collects dust during dispensing.
