7 Differences Between Vibrating Conveyors and Vibrating Feeders

  • 6 min read

Vibrating conveyors and vibrating feeders are machines that use vibration to make materials produce periodic throwing motions to complete the forward conveying of materials.
Vibrating conveyors and vibrating feeders are suitable for conveying massive and powdery materials, such as: chemical raw materials and products, food, glass raw materials, ore, mineral powder, coal, molding sand, etc.

Difference 1#: Vibration mechanism

  • Vibrating conveyors can be divided into two types according to the excitation mechanism: mechanical type and electromagnetic type. Among them, the mechanical type can be divided into two types: elastic link type and inertia type; according to the number of participating vibration components, it can be divided into three types: single body, double body, and multi-body.
  • There are three types of excitation sources for the vibrating feeder: electromagnetic, motor, and biaxial vibrator.

Difference 2#: Working principle

  • The vibrating conveyor uses the reciprocating vibration of the conveying trough to convey the material. There are two ways of conveying the material in the trough, which is the sliding motion and the throwing motion. As long as the appropriate kinematic parameters are determined, such as amplitude, Frequency, vibration direction angle and installation inclination angle, so that the material in the tank can be transported by sliding or throwing.
    In order to overcome the gravity of the material particles during the vibration conveying process, the upward vertical acceleration must be greater than the value of the gravity acceleration; while the gravity of the material particles plays a leading role in the vibrating chute conveying process, it is necessary to overcome the frictional resistance between the material and the trough, the material slides forward.
  • The vibrating feeder is driven by electromagnetic or motor to generate centrifugal force, which makes the movable parts such as screen box and vibrator perform forced continuous circular or approximate circular motion. The material is thrown continuously on the inclined screen surface with the screen box, and the block or granular material is evenly, regularly and continuously fed from the storage bin to the receiving device.

Difference 3#: Application

  • The vibrating conveyor can carry out long-distance transportation;
  • The vibrating feeder is used in the feeding and receiving device.

Difference 4#: Features of vibrating conveyor

  • Multi-point feeding and multi-point discharge can be used during transportation.
  • Can quantitative feeding, batching, automatic calculation.
  • Good sealing performance. The conveying trough can be made into a circular tube shape or a rectangle, and the inlet and outlet of the material adopt a flexible and airtight connection method, which can prevent the material from polluting the environment, and can also prevent the environment from polluting the material. Therefore, toxic, harmful and materials that need protection can be transported.
  • Hot material can be conveyed. When the steel sealed conveying trough is air-cooled, it can transport materials at 500 °C, and it can transport materials below 1000 °C with circulating water cooling.
  • During the conveying process, various technological requirements can be realized, such as dehydration, drying, cooling, screening, heating, heat preservation, mixing and other technological processes.
  • The structure is simple, the manufacture is easy, the installation and adjustment are convenient, the maintenance workload is small, the energy consumption is small, and the operation is safe. The electromagnetic vibrating conveyor is also easy to realize automatic control.
  • The vibrating conveyor is not suitable for conveying sticky and wet powdery materials, and the upward conveying angle generally does not exceed 10°.

Difference 5#: Features of vibrating feeder

  • Simple structure, uniform feeding, good continuous performance, adjustable excitation force;
  • The electrical control adopts half-wave rectifiers, which can adjust the feeding amount steplessly, and can be used in the production process of automatic control to realize the automation of the production process.
  • The electromagnetic vibrating feeder has no rotating parts, no lubrication, simple structure and convenient maintenance.
  • Change and control the flow rate at any time, convenient and stable operation – The electromagnetic vibrating feeder can change and open and close the material flow instantaneously, so the feeding has high precision.
  • During operation, the material is slightly thrown, and the wear of the chute is very small.
  • Low noise, low power consumption, good adjustment performance, no flushing phenomenon
  • If the closed body is used to prevent dust pollution, the vibration is stable, the work is reliable, and the service life is long;
  • The trough made of alloy steel plate can be used to transport high temperature, severely worn and corrosive materials, etc.
