Volkmann GmbH, January 30, 2023
Volkmann vibrating feeder is suitable for a wide range of applications. It is ideal when automating a feeding process in combination with a vacuum conveyor and a complete with a buffer module and level probe.
Depending on the application you can use an open vibrating feeder or a closed hygienic dosing tube. Both variations are easy to clean.
Together with a vacuum conveyor and a material buffer it is possible to offer different types of weighing. For example, negative weighing or rather dosing with a vibrating feeder can achieve a batch accuracy of down to 1 g per cycle depending on the material.
It is possible to convert a discontinuous material transfer process into a continuous feeder with rates up to 1000 kg per hour.
Characteristics: – Continuous material feed – Accuracy down to 1 g (depending on the material) – More effective and gentle operation – Easy to clean – For use in Ex-Zones – Low-wear – Stainless steel AISI 304 or AISI 316 (product contacted parts) Variations: – Open/ closed U-profile dosing tray – Closed pipe-profile dosing tube – Clamp connections at the inlet and outlet – Length and width of the dosing tube and tray are variable
