Feeders can be tapered down to fit narrow belts or other interfacing equipment. They can also taper out to spread out material and lower material depths if required. Curved troughs can be designed to eliminate the need for chutes that direct material 90 degrees. Alternatively, hopper style designs where the trough body tapers out vertically helps prevents material from spilling out when loaded.
Operating angles of vibratory feeders affect material speeds and behaviour. Horizontal installations are standard and provide good feed rate control. If material speed needs to be higher, feeders are installed on inclination angles.
Lining the troughs of feeders is done to either increase life or assist in material flow. Head wearing steel or ceramic liners are used to protect trough bodies from material wear. Plastic based liners are generally used to reduce the risk of sticky material.
