  • Two alternative systems are available for product dosing
  • Stop/start dosing is the level 1 basic
  • The industry standard leans towards the continuous adjustment of the frequency and amplitude of the vibration
  • The technique used will obviously depend on the type of product, and its physical handling characteristics
  • Width: 300mm – 1600mm
  • Length: 1500mm – 6000mm
  • Electromagnetically Driven – Cox & Plant unique coils manufactured inhouse
  • Capacity: depending on product and width
  • Finish of contact surfaces: smooth/natural finish/bead blasted/rigidised/dimple plate or electro polished
  • Material: RVS 304/316

Sorting by size is an essential function for many processing lines.

Sorting can be done by size, shape and quality, and the vibratory conveyor guarantees that the product meets the highest standards. There may be many reasons you need to grade your food produce including meeting your quality standards, maintaining product freshness, conforming to legal requirements, or achieving the market value.

The grader can be used for both fresh and frozen products, as well as a variety of other foods such as nuts, seeds, fruits, vegetables, dry pet food and more.

For greater capacity, the grader can be configured with up to 4 decks, and products can be sorted into multiple grades if required (product dependant) on the same conveyor at the same time.

The quick release screen construction is made from the best materials according to your needs, such as stainless steel and other high quality materials. An operator can rapidly change over the screens to change the aperture size. If the product is susceptible to blinding, then we would use a  vibratory bar grader which will alleviate this issue.
