Bedding is automatically conveyed from the storage via the integral vacuum system and stored in the systems hopper or silo. The bedding is fluidized to assure that it will continuously flow then measured/metered and channeled into the dispensing chambers. The portion controlled bedding is now ready to be dispensed into the centers of the cages.
The VBDS 4900 automatically determines cage size and bedding amounts then aligns cages as they leave the conveyor cage washer. The VBDS 4900 then clamps and gently inverts (flips) cages 180°, right side up. The precise predetermined amounts of bedding are dispensed into the centers of each cage.
