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.
Vibroflow | Vibrating Equipment.
Vibroflow provides consultancy, design and fabrication services on all major types of vibratory materials handling and processing machinery. We supply vibratory feeders, vibratory screens, vibratory conveyors, as well as other specialised vibrating equipment.
Vibroflow can also supply units with sub-resonant tuned (twin mass) drive systems. These units are ruggedly constructed and dynamically balanced which means that they provide reliable performance, extreme energy efficiency and long life in the most demanding applications. More information can be found on the sub resonant information sheet.
Our full product line includes vibratory feeders, vibratory conveyors, vibrating screens, vibrating grinding mills, vibratory crushers, bin activators, storage pile dischargers, spiral conveyors, compaction tables and fluidised bed coolers.
Our engineers and consultants have more than 25 years experience in research and development, design and consulting in the vibratory transportation and processing equipment industry.
Vibroflow is based in Hallam, Victoria and is entirely Australian owned and run.
