Vibrating conveyors

S&F “AFR” type vibrating conveyors are suitable for the gentle conveyance of free- flowing bulk materials of almost any grain size. Due to their sturdy construction, a long and low-maintenance lifetime is achieved. The vibrating conveyors from the "AFR" series can be manufactured with chute widths of up to 1400 mm and a maximum length of 6 m.

The exact design of the conveyors is customized to meet the particular application and requirements of the customer.

Areas of application

S&F vibrating conveyors are used, for example, in the timber industry (sawmill industry, pellet industry, pulp industry), the recycling industry/ waste management (waste wood processing, RDF power stations), the chemical industry (fertilizer industry, plastics industry), the glass industry, the ceramic industry, the glass industry, in foundries, construction materials industry (non-metallic minerals industry, cement industry, concrete industry) and in heavy industry.

Function description

S&F vibrating conveyors (also: vibrating conveyor channels with unbalanced motor drive) are used for the transfer of free-flowing bulk materials from an upstream system. The material is transported gently and at a constant conveyor speed. The vibrators / vibration motors mounted on the side or base of the machine generate the linear vibration. The supplied material is constantly in motion and flows through the trough towards the discharge.

The conveyors are mounted on a substructure with the aid of anti-vibration mountings. The elastic support prevents transmission of the vibrations to the ground. The swinging movement aids in the separation of the material. Afterwards, the material is supplied to a downstream station, such as a screening machine. The design as a vibrating screening feeder is also possible.
