Eriez Magnetics: Eriez launches hi-speed feeders
Hi-speed feeders operate at speeds up to 75% greater than standard feeders.
Eriez® AC operated series of Hi-Speed Feeders have been designed for exceptionally high speed feeding of light, bulky materials. These feeders provide greater economy and efficiency in mixing, weighing, batching, packaging and bagging operations and are ideal for use in conjunction with many weigh scale and packaging machines.
Eriez’ Hi-Speed Feeders operate at speeds up to 75 percent greater than standard feeders. The units are light and can be easily installed in a minimum of space in combination with other equipment.
The Eriez Hi-Speed Feeders’ spring system design consists primarily of an elastomeric torsion spring with high damping properties that allow the feeders to tolerate high deflections without the danger of early failure. The spring system also has quick stopping characteristics due to the rapid decay of vibratory energy when the unit is de-energized, which is useful in product applications such as packaging, where overruns of material cannot be tolerated.
Tuning, when required, is accomplished through simple replacement of an easily accessible glass fiber tuning spring. No other adjustment is necessary.
Eriez Hi-Speed Feeders are available in a variety of models to fit customers’ specific size and weight feeding requirements. The trays are available in mild steel or 304 stainless. Rubber isolators are standard, but coil spring isolators are also available.
