The World's First Small Dose Gravimetric Feeder

ColorSave-Micro is the world's first small dose gravimetric feeder. The ColorSave-Micro's accurate and consistent shot to shot dosing will reduce your product rejects, maintenance time and additive waste.

Since installing the ColorSave-Micro on our small product line, we have not had a single reject due to color.
