Case Studies: Vibrating Feeders

View case studies of vibrating feeders below.

Vibrating feeders can be used in Bulk Processing and Recycling systems to convey or meter material to downstream equipment.

loss in weight hopper with electromagnetic vibrating feeder

Free standing Loss in Weight Hopper with Feeder includes vibrating feeder to meter material from the surge or supply hopper above the feeder.  The system is mounted on load cells with a scale controller and controls to operate the system. System uses an electromagnetic vibrating feeder with flow control to control the rate of discharge from the feeder. The surge or supply hopper can be sized for each application.

It is used for metering additive materials into a mixer or blending system. It is available in stainless steel or carbon steel construction. Control system is designed for independent control or integrated with an in-house process control system.

automatic box or drum filling system with vibrating densifier

This Automatic Box or Drum Filling System with Vibrating Densifier can be a standalone station or used as part of an existing filling line.

Surge hopper feeds material into the electric powered vibrating feeder which meters the material into a box or drum located on the electric powered roller vibrating table. Box or drum is  vibrated or densified during filling. Load cells with a scale controller and controls operate the vibrating feeder and vibrating table.  These are included as part of the system. Additional powered roller conveyors are available.

Process description: Empty box or drum is indexed into the filling position. Vibrating feeders starts and meters material into the box or drum. During the filling process vibrating table starts to compact the material during the fill cycle. At set point weight the filled box is moved off the filling table.

Vibrating finger screens provide consistently accurate sizing for Waste Wood Recycling.

First, raw Waste Wood material is fed into a variable speed vibrating feeder.  The feed rate is adjusted for product density.  The first vibrating finger screen removes oversized material, which is sent back for shredding.

Next, the material is sent through a fines removal trommel.  Then, it is sent through two finger screens for secondary screening.  Spreader feeders are used for improving material distribution across the width of the finger screens.

Vibrating Tube Feeder Enclosed

This Vibrating Tube Feeder conveys crushed aggregate to a bulk storage silo. It can also be used to convey other types of bulk materials like powders, bulk solids and crushed glass.  The enclosed design prevents foreign materials from entering the product stream.  A variable frequency drive is used to control the feed rate as needed for downstream production requirements.

It is suspended in place by steel cables connected to a structure above. Isolation springs prevent transfer of energy from the feeder to the cables and structure. Abrasion Resistant liners can also be used with this feeder.

Carbon Black Batching System for Seven (7) types of carbon blacks. They are simultaneously fed into individual weigh hoppers. Vibratory Feeders meter product into 16 cu. ft. Net Weigh Hoppers supplied with air-operated fast acting Roller Slide Gates.

Carbon Black Batching SystemUpon discharge, a Quiet Single Impactor Pneumatic Vibrator cleans the Weigh Hopper, before the gate closes. The batch is then transferred by Belt Conveyor to a 16 cu. ft. confirmation (check weigh) Hopper where the final weight is either accepted or rejected. Accepted batches go directly to the mixer. If a batch is out of tolerance it is rejected via a Pantleg Diverter into a portable storage container at floor level.

Ingredient Batching System with Bulk Bag Unloading

Ingredient Batching System with Bulk Bag Unloading

This Minor Ingredient Batching System for Rubber Products consists of (13) 2-speed Electromagnetic Vibratory Feeders and (3) 2-speed Precision Volumetric Screw Feeders, manufactured in 304 Stainless Construction. The selection of feeder type was accomplished via testing at manufacturer’s processing and selection test center. Each product was tested and the type of feeder selected for accuracy and flowability.

Specialty designed concrete batching system for concrete powdered products by weight, into a mixer. The components consist of a Bulk Bag Unloader on tank-type load cells, a 50 lb. Bag Dump Station with self-contained Dust Collector, a Twin Motor Vibratory, 2-Speed Feeder and an inclined corrugated side wall, cleated belt conveyor. All items were designed for dust tight operation.

The concrete batching system incorporates a custom software control package for “LOW” Loss of Weight batching. Batches up to 1500 lbs. are weighed with an accuracy of +/- 1 lb. A “refill pause” program enables removal of an empty bulk bag when a low level indication light is energized. Small 50 lb. bag additions or less, are hand-added at the Bag Dump Station. The system was factory tested and demonstrated to customer for their acceptance, prior to final shipment.
