May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Vibracoustic North America, the vibration control business of Freudenberg-NOK, announced today that it will be supplying linear mass dampers to a major tier one supplier for a 2004 domestic sport utility vehicle.
Feeders have vertical rotating discs that create a product lock-up zone conveying material smoothly from storage hopper to discharge outlet, achieving true linear mass flow.
Said to offer accuracy, uniform discharge, consistent volume, and gentle handling, the BSP feeder features vertical rotating discs that create a product "lock-up" zone to convey material smoothly from storage hopper to discharge outlet, achieving true linear mass flow.
Instead, they use one or more vertical rotating discs that create parallel feeding ducts said to provide positive displacement and linear mass flow, as well as quick cleanout.
While within the duct, the material locks up and moves in "plug flow," moving smoothly from storage hopper to discharge outlet, achieving true linear mass flow, producing high linearity and breakthrough accuracy levels.
