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
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.
- 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
Featured Case Study:
5 vibrating feeders are used in a reclaim system to transfer pre-crushed quarry stone from storage onto a take away belt conveyor at aggregate plant.
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.
- 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
