Low-maintenance excited base vibratory conveyor

April 15, 2009
The Excited Base Vibratory Conveyor utilizes a single maintenance-free rotary electric vibrator. It is mounted to an isolated conveyor frame to energize the leaf springs supporting the conveyor pan to produce the maximum conveying action with minimal power requirements. For most applications, the power requirement is less than 1 HP. The rotary electric vibrator is inverter-driven allowing easy adjustment of conveyor speed and has adjustable eccentric weights allowing the force output and resulting conveyor stroke to be easily changed in the field to optimize conveying efficiency. The vibratory conveyors are equipped with stainless steel conveyor pans and Steel-It painted conveyor frames. Optional all stainless steel construction is available for wash down applications. The conveyor is perfectly suited for modular packaging distribution, according to the manufacturer.
