Product Settler / Product Agitator A7

The Brenton A7 product settler / product settler is a compact machine utilizing controlled vibration principles to avoid case over-packing, allowing the case top flaps to close without interference from the product. Loose bagged products such as granola and french fries benefit from settling.

Unlike competitor settling operations that cause the entire machine to vibrate, Brenton's innovative technology ensures precise, focused vibration of only the rocker pulley system while the frame and components remain still, preserving the machine's integrity and longevity.
