PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION
Model TMF Twin
Motor Vibrating Feeders ( Pan and Grizzly Feeders ) are designed to convey product by creating a linear straightline
motion. Two counter-rotating motors provide the linear
(push-pull) action required.
As the AC motors counter-rotate, the side forces
cancel out and the linear forces are combined. With the motors properly
attached and located on a rigidized trough suitable for the forces being
exerted, and also suspended on isolation springs, the conveyance action is
quiet and positive. No belts are required. The synchronized motors provide a
semi-balanced design which eliminates the uncontrolled bouncing at shut down.
Final motors selected can be either 1800, 1200 or 900 RPM, depending upon
amplitude required. Final motor horsepower selected is a function of trough
weight and TPH capacity required.
All motors are continuous duty rated at
maximum force. Grease fittings and heavy duty roller bearings are supplied on
all 900 and 1200 RPM motors. 1800 RPM motors are factory grease packed and
furnished with sealed ball bearings.
