Understanding vibrating conveyors
Are you looking for a conveyor that combines versatility with efficiency? A vibrating conveyor can handle multiple processing tasks and convey materials over long distances with one vibratory drive. This article introduces you to some vibrating conveyor basics -- including natural frequency, operating conditions, material suitability, and conveyor width -- as well as types of vibrating conveyors and vibratory drives.
A vibrating [or oscillating] conveyor can perform multiple tasks while conveying, including separating or screening a material, dewatering a wet material, orienting a material by shape for easier conveying or processing, drying a wet material, cooling a hot material, or controlling a material's feedrate. A vibrating conveyor conveys material with minimum energy input and thus requires only one vibratory drive for long conveyor sections.
