Vibrating Conveyor

A vibrating conveyor is a material conveying device that uses vibration force to convey materials from one point to another. It is very common in various fields, including mining, chemical industry, food, building materials, etc.

During the use of vibrating conveyor, various failures are often encountered, which will not only affect the continuity of production, but also affect the service life of the equipment.

4 major causes of material blockage in vibrating conveyors

When the vibrating conveyor transports materials, if the amount of materials is large, the remaining materials are stranded, or the material is blocked, the equipment will not be able to carry out normal continuous conveying. Possible reasons are as follows:

  • Materials are too close together or stored too densely;
  • The conveying speed of the equipment does not match the flow speed of the material;
  • Severe machine wear, resulting in changes in conveying width;
  • The configured vibration system is not working properly.

4 major solutions to the problem of material blockage

  • Clear the area where the material accumulates, and re-disperse the material;
  • Increase the vibration force or slow down the conveying speed to improve the fluidity of the material and avoid the occurrence of material jamming;
  • Replacement of damaged machine parts, especially those directly related to the conveying width;
  • Clean up the accumulated water and debris in the equipment in time to avoid affecting the transmission efficiency of the equipment.

In summary

There is no need to panic when the vibrating conveyor encounters a failure. Instead, on the premise of correctly evaluating the problem, follow the relevant operating procedures, eliminate possible problems one by one, and have professional technicians repair and upgrade.

Only in this way can the normal operation of the vibrating conveyor be guaranteed and the continuity of production realized. During the long-term operation of the equipment, a maintenance and maintenance plan is formulated, and regular inspection and maintenance are carried out to ensure the normal operation of the equipment.
