The design of this unit allows it to be easily customized to fit in just about any existing process or new process line. With a small supply hopper or hopper transition, a head of product is positioned above the feeder tray, so it can be adjusted vertically to provide a course setting for the flow range needed.
The CentriFeeder® VIB accurately measures and controls the flow of any dry, free-flowing solid that can be transported via a Vibratory Conveyor. The CentriFeeder VIB integrates the conveying abilities of a Vibratory Conveyor with the precise and accurate flow measurement of a CentriFlow gravimetric flow meter, thus allowing for the control of the flow of product as it exits the CentriFeeder.
By accurately measuring the product flow as it exits the vibratory tray, the CentriFeeder’ s electronics can utilize the flow signal to modulate the speed of the vibratory tray to quickly and accurately control the flow rate and total of the flow of product.
The CentriFeeder VIB can be used as a stand-alone unit for controlling the flow of a single product or multiple feeders can be used in conjunction for recipe based batching or blending. In either case, the outcome is an easily maintained, consistent flow that can be controlled to within +/-0.5% over a very large turndown.

- Seeds and Grains
- Coffee Beans (green and roasted)
- Dried spices
