Mogensen introduce their largest ever spreader feeder to serve two 3m wide machines simultaneously
MOGENSEN have introduced their largest ever vibratory spreader feeder, the F7812CT model, which is designed to accept a feed from a relatively narrow, high-speed source, such as a conveyor belt, and divide it accurately between two following items of process equipment spreading the process material evenly across the whole width of each unit.
The new machine weighs 8.8 tonnes and is driven by two counter-rotating Invicta vibrators, which provide a linear vibration stroke of 8mm. It is designed to serve two 3m wide machines such as vibratory screens or conveyor-type fluid-bed driers which require an evenly spread feed at a low velocity to allow them to operate at their optimal efficiency.
Spreader feeders can also be used to supply a carefully controlled flow of feed material to magnetic drum separators, or to computerized optical and X-ray sorting machines which require an evenly spread, single-item-thick ‘curtain’ of feed to be presented to the illumination source and sensors.
With the addition of the new model, Mogensen now offer a complete range of spreader feeders comprising models designed to present a controlled, evenly-spread feed to subsequent single process equipment items measuring 1m, 1.5m, 2m and 3m in width, and to the same four width options with the double-feeder version.
