Automatic Powder Dispenser

The Automatic Powder Dispenser (APD1) has been designed to dispense powders and granules, combining highly accurate and repeatable batching results with a clean and safe working environment.

Based on proven technology licensed from Ciba Geigy, the APD1 can handle most solids, from fine powders to large grains.


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.

Easy operation

The Camelot software on an industrial PC allows for an easy operation.


The unit can be integrated into a fully automatic dyehouse, combining powder dispensing, dissolving and distribution to the dye machines.


Dispenses are within pre-defined tolerances which results in less material waste.


The APD1 has a modular construction. Each module contains 16 silo positions and up to 6 modules can be combined, resulting in a maximum of 96 positions. A 90 l. silo uses a single position, a 300 l. silo uses 4 positions.


The tanks are constructed in stainless steel. The area under the tanks is completely enclosed to preserve accuracy and avoid contamination between batches.

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.
