Eriez Magnetics: Feeders for difficult-to-handle bulk material
Eriez High Deflection (HD) Series Feeders use a totally enclosed patented magnetic drive to handle difficult-to-feed materials such as fine powders (talc or flour), leafy products such as lettuce and sticky candies, that normally can’t be fed successfully on an electromagnetic feeder.

Materials from micron size to bulky chunks can be handled by the 3/16-in. stroke of the HD feeder. Features travel speeds to 80 ft./min. (24 mtrs./min.) and throughputs ranging from 150 to 700 cu ft./hr. (4.25-20 cu mtrs./hr.). With unique Hi–Vi magnetic drive circuits, the feeders provide a simple yet powerful solution to challenging material feeding applications. Simple AC controls operate the feeders with precision. Standard models are available for most feeding applications. Special units can be ordered with multiple drives for greater capacities. A wide variety of standard and special trays are available.
