The material transfer from the truck reveals the positive impacts of VHV’s FlatFeeder on the processes at your premises. Let’s begin with the most important aspect: The generously dimensioned top part of the feeder is able to take up an entire truckload of up to 22 m³, even if the discharge conveyor stands still, causing a reduction of the truck’s dwell time on your premises.
By using its rear axle the truck drives onto the partially passable grids until it reaches the stable brink wedge within the feeder’s top part and tilts the load. The narrowed attachment hopper enables a comfortable gateway. When moving forward, the truck is emptied in total and the material then slips through the grids onto the 3 m wide belt conveyor.
The metering capacity can be adjusted by means of both the conveying velocity and the thickness of layer between 40 and 400 m³/h. Short vibration impulses ensure that adhesive material remains are loosened and deviated effectively. This guarantees, even if the material is altered a lot, a nearly unmixed feeding.
Furthermore, VHV’s FlatFeeder is convincing due to its noise abatement and safety: thanks to the little drop height of the material, but also because the material is tilted onto the grid, this receiving station causes only little noise emission. Safety equipment according to the machinery directive is a matter of course, such as the finger protection at the return idler station.
