Cross Feeders provide high speeds for food-packaging lines.

Press Release Summary:




HS (High-Speed) and HD (High Deflection) vibratory cross feeders and conveyors distribute product into vertical, fill, and seal (VFS) or weigh-scale equipment using peripheral discharge trays capable of delivering 100-1,000 ft³/hr of material. They incorporate AC electromagnetic drives, enabling systems to easily cycle up to 100 times/min. VMC Series Electromagnetic Conveyors use 2-mass vibrating system, corrosion-resistant fiberglass springs, and variable-voltage controller.

High Speed Cross Feeders for Packaging Lines



Erie, PA - April 2003 - Eriez has introduced new high precision, cross feeders designed for use in food packaging applications. These high speed, high deflection and high volume vibratory cross feeders and conveyors distribute product into vertical, fill and seal (VFS) or weigh scale equipment using peripheral discharge trays capable of delivering from 100 to 1,000 cu ft of material per hour.

Eriez' HS (High-Speed) and HD (High Deflection) vibratory feeders featuring low energy, AC electromagnetic drives provide superior reliability, precise cycling and low operating cost. The high deflection series is recommended when feeding extremely lightweight materials where a higher angle-of-deflection (3/16") and lower frequency (30 cps) produces more accurate feed characteristics. Both HS and HD series use the same AC drive enabling systems to easily cycle up to 100 times per minute.

Eriez' VMC Series Electromagnetic Conveyors use a two-mass vibrating system powered by one or more electromagnetic drives. Specially designed corrosion-resistant fiberglass springs amplify the stroke and are adjustable for easy fine-tuning of the conveyor's motion. They contain use no sliding or rotating parts to wear out, or belts and bearings to fail. A variable voltage controller allows "watch-like" precision in the control of conveyor amplitude. Units are available in base or suspension mounting.

Eriez' cross feeders use peripheral discharge trays made of food grade, stainless steel Units can include screens to eliminate fines or damaged product during packaging.
