Energy separation system combines conveying, storage, feeding, screening

May 28, 2008
The Feed-Vac Vibro-Energy Separator System combines the functions of conveying, storage, feeding and screening of dry materials into one complete unit. The result is a substantial increase in productivity and significant savings in capital, space and energy. This Feed-Vac System is comprised of the Sweco Vibro-Energy Separator , which has the ability to size product into two to five fractions, combined with the Sweco Accu-Feed System, which is a conical storage bin with an adjustable feed controller. This combination eliminates the need for a separate feeder and hopper while optimizing efficiency. The final component is an adaptable vacuum conveying system capable of transporting most dry powder or granule products through a dedicated pipe system to the Accu-Feed and separator.
