Small Vibratory Feeders

arbo vv80 volumetric feeder for food plastics chemicals ceramics

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.

Spreading Peanuts on Snack Food Conveyor using Vibratory Feeder

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.

Electrostatic Coating System for Cheese Processing Flavoring 1Using 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.

loss in weight hopper with electromagnetic vibrating feeder

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.

automatic box or drum filling system with vibrating densifier

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.

Discharge Product from Bulk Bags into Batching Mixing System

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.

Carbon Black Batching SystemUpon 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.
