Title: Controlling the feedrate of material from a vibratory pipe conveyor using an electro-magnetic vibrator and load cell system
Authors: Janse van Vuuren, Gary Peter
Issue Date: 1994
Abstract: This work presents a novel way of controlling the feed rate of raw material from a vibratory pipe feeder system. The system consists of a hopper, feeder pipe, electromechanical vibrator and a loadcell which measures the mass of the complete system. Raw material is gravity fed onto the vibrating pipe whose amplitude of vibration controls the amount of material fed.
