Mogensen vibratory feeders for Lafarge Cement

Earlier this year Mogensen received an order for eight Type TR1 vibratory feeders for installation at Lafarge Cement’s Northfleet Works. This order followed on from the successful operation of a similar feeder, which was commissioned at Northfleet in 2003.

The new feeders will be suspended above the reclaim tunnel conveyor using both wire ropes and isolation springs, the duty of each machine being to extract up to 100 tonnes/h of abrasive clinker from the main storage silos and to discharge it on to the conveyor.

Each 1,500mm x 660mm feeder is driven by two counter-rotating 500W Invicta Type BL24-14/4 rotary electric vibrators, which induce a linear vibratory action. The troughs are fitted with 8mm Abro wear-resistant liners.

Mogensen’s TR1 machines, which form only a part of the company’s extensive range of feeders, are available in trough widths up to 1,000mm and can handle flows up to 300 tonnes/h. Other Mogensen feeders range from small pneumatic vibrator-driven models via inexpensive single rotary vibrator machines to heavy-duty TS units, which offer capacities in excess of 2,000 tonnes/h.

Spreader and multi-stream feeders are also available. The machines are offered in mild steel, stainless steel and heat-resistant steel construction in either open or fully enclosed versions, with or without one of a selection of replaceable liners.
