Thus CFS manages a more equal loading of the crushing area, in which the conveying frequencies of the feeder trough and the prescreen are adapted independently of each other to the level of the crusher, significantly boosting performance.
The dispersion table disperses mushrooms into feeder troughs containing large metal spirals (screws).
Provided water in feeder troughs at an every 4 hours gap, because affected birds were unable to stand and knock the nipples in cages.
Its CCW-R-214 Screw Feeder Weigher incorporates rotating corkscrews to replace traditionally used radial feeder troughs, providing a powerful, controlled and fully automatic product feed to the pool and weigh hoppers.
New hardware and software allows maximum productivity - the flow of product to the trays on the dispersion table is controlled by a load cell and the intensity of the vibrations of the vibratory feeder troughs is constantly adjusted automatically.
According to the company, the new, highly efficient material flow concept of the EVO models eliminates all restriction to the flow of the material throughout the entire plant, For instance, system widths of the feeder troughs and grizzly improve material flow through the opening of the crusher.
The weigher has a standard configuration, with ring gate, semi-flat radial feeder troughs, five-liter size anti-spillage pool and weigh hoppers, and a beak-type timing hopper at the outlet.
For example, specially shaped feeder troughs ease the transition from horizontal to vertical as the product falls into the hoppers, while funnel inserts in the hoppers help to keep all the sticks pointing in the same direction.
For example, when small-grained, free-flowing products such as quinoa are being packed, an enclosed dispersion table with apertures leading to the radial feeder troughs is used.
Equally important, with the weigher requiring a clean two times a day during changeovers and a deep clean every week, the hygienic design, with its rounded construction, is simple to hose down and offers no 'traps' for spores or other contaminants to linger in, while all contact parts, including feeder troughs and hoppers, can be lifted off the machine and replaced without the need for any tools.
Its design features feeder troughs arranged in a straight line with short drop distances, particularly appropriate for handling fragile products such as sugar coated confectionery or chocolate coated mini biscuits.
All contact parts, including feeder troughs and hoppers, can be lifted off the machine without the need for any tools and hung on a special Ishida 'wash wall' nearby, where a whole set can be cleaned by spraying in 5 minutes.
