Syntron® MF heavy-duty electromechanical feeders are the heavy-weights of bulk material handling and are used for higher capacity requirements. The eight heavy-duty models handle capacities from 100 to 4,000 tons per hour.*
Syntron heavy-duty electromechanical feeders combine extra structural strength with durable components. The deep wing plates form a bridge between inlet and discharge suspension supports, providing extra strength for years of dependable service. Standard troughs feature unitized weldments—one-piece, completely welded units for greater strength. Troughs are also available with bolt-together construction for tunnel installations or other confined areas. MF heavy-duty electromechanical feeders are two-mass, spring-connected, and sub-resonant-tuned.
The exciter unit is connected to the trough with corrosion resistant polymeric drive springs, which reduces the stroke vertically while amplifying stroke in the direction of material flow. This feature creates straight line motion providing maximum material flow rate and feeder capacity. Syntron feeders also utilize custom engineered electromechanical vibrators. These vibrators feature an L10 life expectancy averaging over 100,000 hours in normal operations and they allow for quick removal via access from both sides of the feeder or out the bottom. Attachments for safety cables are included on all Syntron feeders.
*Based on dry sand weighing 100 pounds per cubic foot. Capacities vary depending on material characteristics, material density, trough length and width, trough liner type, feeder installation, skirt boards, and hopper transitions.
