Industrial Vibrating Feeders

Vibrating feeders by manufacturers with over 50 years experience in the Bulk Processing industry.

Feed rates are adjustable for all vibratory process equipment and systems.

Other highlights include:

  • 60% less energy required to operate
  • custom designed to fit your application and process
  • backed by 100% process guarantee

Selection of vibrating feeders will depend on the application, flow rate and material.  This will be either a feeder with a natural frequency drive or a direct drive vibrating feeder.

I. Natural Frequency Drive – Vibrating Feeders

Natural Frequency Drive Vibrating Feeders

Custom installations usually include a fixed or variable force configuration.  These use a sub-resonant, two-mass system.  Mass A (the bulk material) moves Mass B (the feed deck) through engineered coil springs.  Therefore, only small amounts of energy are needed to maintain the feeding energy stored in the coil springs.  This can result in a higher feed capacity at lower energy rates because the variable force and springs do most of the work.

More features:

  • vibrating feeders built with  trough containing convenient, replaceable decks
  • heavy duty springs with optional galvanized coatings
  • automatically compensate for material loads and weight to maintain constant feed
  • vibrating feeders can be installed at up to 15 degrees decline and still maintain stable control
  • full-sized hopper opening means less bridging and blockages
  • feed rate will not be effected by system electricity fluctuations
  • meet all OSHA noise specifications

II. Direct Drive – Vibrating Feeders

Designed for continuous, rugged, heavy-duty operation.  These types of feeders can be custom designed to feed the most difficult materials.  Some common applications include:  recycling, coal, scrap metals, industrial materials, minerals, chemical and more.  Even after 40 years of continuous use, some of these vibrating feeders are still in use today.

More features:

  • custom and standard sizes available
  • drives can be mounted above or below the feeder pan
  • pan liners can be bolted or welded on
  • custom materials, surfaces and corrosive resistant finishes available
