Elscint recently manufactured a vibratory bowl feeder for feeding of wicks which are used in making mosquito repellants. The requirement was to feed the same in axial / lengthwise direction at a very high speed. The size of the wick was dia 8 mm x 70 mm long. Elscint used its Model 400 with a dia 600 mm bowl for this application. The output was taken out in a tube and the bowl was coated with green colour Elscinthane PU coating. Ahead of the bowl, a flexible tube was attached for the convenience of the customer. The speed achieved was 150 parts per minute as against a requirement of 120 wicks a minute.
