LINN-Automatic Fish Feeder
Ideal fish feeder for
- Fry feeding
- Feeding of koi and ornamental fish
- hobby ponds
The special mechanism of the new feeder has been taken from the established Profi Automatic Feeder, a success for many years. This mechanism ensures that the food is delivered to the fish in the required quantities, intact, and without dusting. The food is delivered by a “portioning finger”, which is driven by a 230V geared motor. The feeding rate is about 100g per minute according to the feed quality and size. The feeder can accept feed sizes from fry feed up to 9mm.
The problems and disadvantages of clockwork feeders, where humidity causes the feed to stick together and go mouldy, are solved. Feeding is programmed to take place intermittently as required. Thus fish do not collect below the feeder, as they would below clockwork feeders which feed continuously. The hopper capacity is 5kg, so can store enough for several days, and the feed level is visible from outside. For convenience, the lid is attached by a hinge to the hopper. A stainless-steel ring cradle (length 25cm) is available as an optional extra.
A completely new timer control (at the end of the 10 cable) has been developed for this feeder. This enables feeds to be set to the second. The clock has been designed to be user-friendly. With a main button and the buttons “+” or “-“, all feeds can be set quickly and easily. It is only necessary to set the start and end of feeding, the required number of feeds, and the total feeding time (minutes or seconds) per day. The feeding programme is then created automatically! This timer control offers the convenience of being able to take into account growth of the fish and raise the feed ration, daily, accordingly.
Profi Automatic Feeder
Until now, feeding fry has been difficult. Pendulum and vibratory feeders are not very suitable, due to the small particle size of fry feeds. Alternatively, clockwork feeders offer an apparent solution. However, in the presence of humidity, the feed sticks to the large surface area of the belt, and fungus grows. Consequently, a lot of labour is required to keep it running. In addition, the clockwork mechanism has to be wound up daily.
The LINN company has solved these problems with the new PROFI Automatic feeder. The special mechanism of the feeder ensures that the food is delivered to the fish, intact, without dusting, and in the required quantities. The ration is dispensed by portioning fingers, that are operated by a 230v geared motor. The portion of feed depends on the feed particle size. For example, 50g for 0.5mm feed. The feed quantity is identical with every feed ! It is possible to feed controllably and reliably with this innovation ! The food slides easily and there are no spaces in which moisture can form.
The adjustment of the feeding rate is easy with the integral timer, from intervals of one minute and longer. So, once the feeder has been adjusted, it is possible to continue feeding automatically for several days without any problems. Changing the feeding intervals is also quick and easy.
There are 2 different models available, according to the feed quantity and particle size:
- Model 1 for fry feed and smaller amounts of feed.
- Model 2 for larger feed amounts.
