Elscint recently manufactured two Vibratory Bowl Feeders, one clockwise and another anti-clockwise for feeding of Plastic scoops. It was designed in such a manner that with slight adjustment, two different sizes of scoops could be fed through the same. All the touching parts were made from stainless steel SS 316 L grade. A step / cascade design bowl was fabricated Bowl for this purpose. In case of scoop feeding, not only is the Orientation very critical but the speed or feed rate required to be achieved is also very high. The advantage of this new type of bowl is that at the end any required orientation can be provided to the customer. Additionally, singling or escapement was provided which in turn helps in releasing one scoop at a time so that the same can be packed in a carton. As the length of the scoops was more than 120 mm, Model 630 having a bowl diameter of approximately 1000 mm was used for this purpose. The largest scoop size was dia 40 mm x 115 mm length. A speed of approx. 70 to 80 Scoops per minute for each size was achieved. The material of construction was totally stainless steel 316 L as the scoop was used for food intake. To increase the loading capacity in the bowl, for each vibratory bowl feeder, a separate 50 ltr. extra capacity hopper was provided which too was made in SS 316L. You can watch the smaller size scoop video and the larger scoop video.
