These small vibratory feeders use a gentle vibrating motion, closed loop, and resonant frequency to feed or dose powders, foods, plastics, chemicals, and ceramics. They are the feeder of choice for materials that are not easily fed or conveyed by screw or belt feeders. The patented volumetric feeders, or tray feeders, are perfect for many different applications and can replace traditional single or twin screw feeders. The gravimetric, or loss-in-weight tray feeders, include static weigh frames with 3 load cells that are available for all sizes.

Choose from a complete line of volumetric feeders or gravimetric feeders including vibratory tray feeders, flexible wall feeders, chemical feeders, additive feeders, dosing feeders, liquid feeders, and more. Add electrostatic food seasoning and coating equipment for even more precise control over product additive and powder usage.
Accurate dosing of seasonings into a tumbling drum, easy cleaning, reliability
Feeder used to dispense seasonings into a tumbling drum
Food production facilities use vibrating feeders (a.k.a. vibratory pan feeders -or- scarf feeders) for dispensing seasonings and spices directly onto the surface of food products as they tumble in a drum. This process is referred to as enrobing. The feeder can also meter seasonings precisely into a blended seasoning batch, or as an application of toppings and coatings in downstream processing equipment.
With this type of electrostatic seasoning and coating system, the customer was able to produce seasoned nut and seed food products in one day instead of seven. It also greatly reduced production costs associated with the previous system, providing a quick ROI. It can be retrofitted to existing seasoning equipment and systems.
On-site testing is available to prove actual production results.Please contact us for more information.
Apply many different types of seasonings such as ranch, bacon ranch, salt and pepper, parmesan and pepper, buffalo flavored, BBQ, cinnamon, churro flavored, salt and vinegar, sweet and salty, and wasabi. These types of custom seasonings can be applied to nuts, seeds, popcorn, cheese, chips, and other snack food products.
Dill pickle seasoning being applied to cashews using electrostatic coating process
A volumetric vibratory feeder installed over a snack food production line is used to evenly spread peanuts across the width of the conveyor. The peanut pieces are loaded into the feeder supply hopper. The electromagnetic driven vibratory feeder will draw the peanuts out of the hopper at a controlled rate and spread them evenly across the width of the pan. Feed rate is easy adjusted by the controller supplied with the drive with a 1000:1 turndown ratio controlled by the RVS amplitude sensor and feedback loop controller built into the vibratory drive.
A multi-channel vibratory feeder evenly adds toppings to edible products that are made in multiple rows. This feeder spreader, also known as a waterfall topping applicator, can accurately dose chocolate chunks, chocolate chips, toffee, almonds, dried fruits, chopped nuts and other toppings to a snack food production line.
Using an electrostatic coating system can greatly reduce starch powder build-up on cheese processing lines while reducing airborne powder. This will significantly reduce the amount of waste powder during the coating process.
We accurately control the amount of powder (starch) discharged onto the shredded cheese. This feeding system is designed to atomize dry spices, starches, cellulose powders, and other anti-caking agents as they are applied to the shredded cheese rotating in the food coating drum. Located at the discharge of the dosing feeder is a negatively charged electrostatic field to create an electrostatic charge in the powder. This negatively charge field is pointing toward the cheese rotating in the drum. The starch is then attracted to the positively charged cheese rotating in the drum.
Apply seasoning, spices, sugar and other coatings to peanuts and snack products using electrostatic technology for up to 45% seasoning reduction. It has been used with peanuts, cashews, macadamia nuts and many other types of fragile snack products like chips, pretzels, pastas, rice, cheese and more.
This type of spice application system can be installed on new or existing machines and systems.
Complete systems are also available for testing purposes to use on-site before final purchase. Contact us for more information about setting a test system at your production facility.
This free standing loss-in-weight hopper with a small feeder meters material from the surge or supply hopper above the feeder. The system is mounted on load cells with a scale controller and PLC controls to operate the system. The 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. The control system is designed for independent control or can be integrated with an in-house process control system.
This automatic box and drum filling system with vibrating table can be a standalone station or used as part of an existing filling line.
A 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. The box or drum is vibrated or densified during filling. Load cells with a scale controller and controls operate the vibrating feeder and vibrating table. They are included as part of the system. Additional powered roller conveyors are available.
This big bag unloader discharges material from a bulk bag into an industrial mixer. An operator lifts a bulk bag using a fork truck and hangs it on the frame. Material is drawn out of the bag using an enclosed vibrating feeder and transfers it into a paddle mixer for blending with other dry ingredients. The feeder is controlled by a loss-in-weight system comprised of load cells and a controller to dispense a specific weight of material per batch.
This batching system was custom designed for 7 types of carbon black. They are all simultaneously fed into individual weigh hoppers. Small vibratory feeders meter the carbon black into 16 cubic feet, net weigh hoppers supplied with air-operated, fast acting roller slide gates.
Upon discharge, an air-powered industrial vibrator cleans the weigh hopper before the gate closes. The batch is then transferred by belt conveyor to a 16 cubic feet confirmation (check weigh) hopper, where the final weight is either accepted or rejected. Accepted batches go directly into an industrial 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
This minor ingredient batching system for rubber products consists of (13) small vibratory feeders and (3) 2-speed precision volumetric screw feeders, manufactured in 304 stainless steel. The selection of feeder type was accomplished via testing at the manufacturer’s facility. Each product was tested and the type of feeder selected for accuracy and flowability.
This powder blending system is used to mix dry ingredients by weight to create concrete products. Once the ingredients are unloaded into the system, they are conveyed to an industrial mixer.
The equipment consists of a big bag unloader on tank-type load cells, a 50 pound bag dump station with self-contained dust collector, a twin motor vibratory 2-speed feeder with an inclined corrugated side wall, and a cleated belt conveyor. All equipment was designed for dust-tight operation.
A bulk bag unloading system, containing (3) unloader stations, precisely dispenses additives into a blending and mixing system. Each station contains an over head rail with a powered hoist and trolley to lift the bag transport frame and bulk bag into each station.
Under the bulk bag is an untie hopper and delumper to remove any lumps before entering a vibratory feeder. The feeder meters the powdered material into a pneumatic conveyor. The pneumatic conveyor then transfers the material to a weigh hopper located above the blending and mixing system.
