Free, Downloadable Vibratory Equipment Sizing and Application Programs Available from Eriez­® Orange University®

Erie, PA – Through the company's Orange University® Program, Eriez® has developed two new downloadable programs to simplify the process of determining the proper vibratory equipment for specific applications.  Both programs are offered for immediate, free download from the Eriez website.

The Feeder Tray Capacity Calculator (FeederCap) determines the appropriate tray size based on the material being fed and desired flow rate. The capacity of a feeder equals the material density by velocity by width by depth of the tray.

The Bin Guide selects the proper bin vibrator based on the material being fed, desired feed rate and size of the hopper. As the dimensional information is entered, the Bin Guide presents a three-dimensional sketch of the bin geometry. The program offers a complete library of material densities, allowing users to easily look up and enter this information.

Both the Feeder Tray Capacity Calculator and Bin Guide can be immediately downloaded at For more information on additional productivity tools available from Eriez Orange University, visit
