Energy saving solutions with GK vibratory feedersEngineering bulk processing machines utilize energy via a “shaking” motion results in energy saving vibratory feeders. If you are unfamiliar with the vibratory feeding process, it might help to compare it to something a little more general, for example, baking. In the kitchen it would be somewhat similar to adding flour to batter at an even pace to make blending occur more evenly.

Energy Saving Design: Bulk Processing without Risk

Watching someone go up-and-down on a Pogo stick is almost always impressive or hilarious—unless the approach fails (which, today, is easily caught on tape). Visually similar to a Pogo stick, when you observe our PARA-MOUNT II® vibrating feeders’ shaking motion, you may be curious about it’s design. The consistent and dependable motion is intentional in design, not to mention much more secure than the risks of Pogo-ing!

The vibrating feeder designs include a feeder and precision engineered coil springs. The feeder, or feed deck, cradles all of the goods—for example, pre-crushed quarry—that need to be processed.

How Energy is Saved

While moving materials forward, the coil springs store and release the natural energy that’s created from the shaking. As a result, only minimal quantities of energy are required to maintain the motion. Ergo, energy costs are saved.

Beyond saving energy, the heavy-duty springs have optional galvanized coatings. The feed rate in consistent, because the feeders automatically compensate for load and weight fluctuations. Furthermore, the flow rate is customizable and adjustable to your needs and the needs of your processing facility—too bad Pogo-ing isn’t as easy!
