Vibrating Tube Type Feeder

A vibrating tube-type feeder, also known as a vibratory tube feeder or tube conveyor, is a specialized type of vibrating feeder used for conveying bulk materials in a tube-shaped structure. These feeders are commonly used in industries such as food processing, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and plastics, where gentle handling of materials and sanitary conditions are essential.
  • Description

Vibrating tube-type feeders offer gentle and efficient material handling solutions for industries requiring controlled conveying of bulk materials in a tube-shaped structure. Their sanitary design, gentle conveying action, and versatility make them suitable for a wide range of applications in diverse industrial settings.

Vibrating Tube Type Feeders Features

Tube-Shaped Structure: A vibrating tube-type feeder consists of a tube or trough-shaped structure through which materials are conveyed. The tube is typically made of stainless steel or other durable materials and can have various diameters and lengths depending on the application.

Vibration Mechanism: These feeders utilize vibrating motors or electromagnets to generate controlled vibrations that move the material along the tube. The vibrations help to prevent material buildup and ensure smooth and consistent material flow.

Gentle Handling: Vibrating tube-type feeders are designed to handle fragile or delicate materials without causing damage or degradation. The gentle conveying action minimizes product breakage and ensures product integrity.

Sanitary Design: They are often designed with sanitary features such as smooth surfaces, easy-clean designs, and quick-release clamps to facilitate cleaning and minimize contamination risks.

Versatility: Tube-type feeders can handle a wide range of bulk materials, including powders, granules, pellets, flakes, and other free-flowing or cohesive materials.

Vibrating Tube Type Feeders Working Principle

Material Loading: Bulk materials are loaded into the tube feeder either manually or through automated feeding systems such as conveyor belts or loaders.

Vibration Generation: Vibrating motors or electromagnets mounted on the tube feeder generate controlled vibrations. These vibrations cause the material to move along the tube in a controlled and consistent manner.

Material Conveyance: As the tube vibrates, the bulk material is conveyed forward. The tube's inclined or horizontal orientation influences the conveying direction and trajectory of the material.

Discharge: At the discharge end of the tube feeder, mechanisms such as gates, chutes, or conveyor belts regulate the flow of material onto the next stage of the production process.

Vibrating Tube Type Feeders Applications

Food Processing: Vibrating tube-type feeders are used in food processing industries for conveying ingredients such as flour, sugar, salt, spices, and additives in baking, mixing, blending, and packaging applications.

Pharmaceuticals: They are employed in pharmaceutical manufacturing for conveying powders, granules, capsules, tablets, and other pharmaceutical ingredients in production and packaging processes.

Chemicals and Plastics: Tube-type feeders find applications in chemical processing and plastics manufacturing for conveying resins, pigments, additives, and other raw materials in compounding, extrusion, molding, and packaging operations.

Packaging: They are used in packaging lines for conveying and filling containers, pouches, bags, or bottles with powders, granules, or other bulk materials.

Mining and Minerals: Tube-type feeders are utilized in mining and mineral processing for conveying ores, minerals, and aggregates from storage bins or hoppers to crushers, screens, mills, and other equipment.
