Inspired by an auger (and refined through simulation, testing, and iteration), a large tube with deep spiral grooves pours bulk powder at rates up to 50 GN/s, ramping down smoothly to within 1-2 grains of the target. A smaller tube then takes over to complete the charge within a kernel using an efficient ramping curve that takes calibrated flow rates into account. By popular request, a green light shines down through the clear panel indicating the correct charge weight has been reached. Both tubes are driven directly by toothed timing belts which will not wear out over time.
AutoTrickler V4 rests on a clear acrylic panel with soft silicone pads that minimize vibration and noise. The housing can be easily lifted from the panel without disturbing the scale. Silicone pads added to the scale platform keep the entire assembly stable and level. A tilt adjustment within the housing will be factory set so that leveling the scale using it's built-in bubble level will set the AutoTrickler at the correct tilt angle.
To empty powder, first turn and remove the hopper. Then slide up the window and pour the powder into the hopper. Tilt the unit backwards to clear powder out of the tubes. Any remaining powder will be clearly visible either in the rear reservoir or by looking through the tubes.
