Horizontal Discharge Elevating Prefeeders
The EH (elevating, horizontal) series prefeeder handles a wide range of product sizes and shapes to effectively meter product from floor level up, then a horizontal belt takes the product over existing equipment (if needed), to gently deposit the parts into the feeding application. The hopper ranges from 8 cubic feet to 50 cubic feet. The cleated, table-top chain on the elevating conveyor pulls product up from the hopper well and carries it to the upper head. The pulley system allows for the cleated conveyor to traverse in a horizontal way, essentially lowering the height requirements to reach the discharge location of the feeder, or to be able to span long distances due to floor space restrictions. An optional “dump” door on the hopper allows for quick and easy product removal when cleaning is required, or for product changeover. Upgrades are available for many food and pharmaceutical applications as well. Belt speeds will vary based on the customer’s requirements and motor controller.
