Feeders for powder and bulk solids handling operations
Feeders are of great importance in bulk material handling systems since feeders control the solid flow rate. When feeders stop working, the solids flow rate will come to an end. The difference between feeders and conveyors is that conveyors are only capable of transporting material, not controlling the flow rate.
There are two basic types of bulk feeders: volumetric feeders and gravimetric feeders.
Volumetric feeders are dosing systems that supply the production system with a certain volume of material in a set timeframe, based on the displacement principle.
Gravimetric feeders are self-calibrating dosing systems that dose based on weight in speed.
This Technology Zone offers an insight into the latest innovations in Feeders for dry material processing industries.
