In recycling, vibrating feeders are used to either interface material or spread it out.

Interfacing Vibrating Feeders

Interfacing vibrating feeders are used to receive product, usually from a hopper or loader, and pass it for further processing. Some examples of interfacing vibrating feeders include:

  • A vibrating feeder that is fed by an excavator which then feeds onto a belt.
  • Withdrawing material from a storage hopper above and fed onto a sorting conveyor.
  • Take a load from a truck and slowly feed onto an elevated conveyor.

Vibrating Feeders for Spreading

Sorting stations require a low material depth to allow easy identification for manual withdrawal. Optical sorters require a low material depth and an even material feed in order to operate correctly. Recycling vibrating feeders are also used to pass material evenly onto a screen surface.

Twin mass drive systems are usually used on these types of feeders to minimise vibration passed to the sensitive sorting machines and to allow for a large change in feed rate.
