Using a vibratory system to maximise the accuracy of the feed to the dispersion table of the multihead.
Two dispersal systems are currently in use in the industry: vibratory and belt.
The challenge was to demonstrate how improved, production efficiency, can be achieved through the use of a cross head feeder.
Our unique ‘synchronisation’ system is able to calibrate the flow to ensure a smooth and constant delivery of product to the weigher, ensuring the precise delivery of product to the weigher.
This synchronisation system enables the algorithm to be optimised to achieve the target weight by alleviating the feast or famine that is experienced when the infeed medium is a belt conveyor.
In our on-site and field trials, the vibratory system increased the weigher accuracies to 93% with a vibratory cross head feeder straight discharge.
When a spigot [circular] discharge was trialled, we increased accuracy to 97.7% compared to conveyors, which returned a mean result of 79% across the various trails.
