Hopper Feeder

Hopper Feeder

Application

A manufacturing company were wanting to use a vibratory feeder to feed alloy into a wheelbarrow to weigh rather than shoveling the material manually. The hopper is fed by bulk bags from an overhead crane.

Solution

Vibroflow designed and manufactured a hopper that features bag cutting plates which splits the bags of alloy open allowing it to pass through the hopper onto the vibrating feeder.

Features of this unit include:

Hopper

  • Mild steel body
  • Support frame
  • Capacity of 2.5m3
  • Bulk bag cutting plates
  • Adjustable gate

Feeder

  • Mild steel trough
  • 2 vibratory motors
  • Oscillating mounts
