AC-Operated Hi-Speed Feeders

September 18, 2013

Eriez AC-operated series of Hi-Speed feeders has been designed for 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. The 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 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.
