Vibrating tubular feeder with unbalanced drive

for conveying of bulk material

IFE vibrating tubular feeders with unbalanced motors are used for bin extraction and for conveying of bulk material. These units are extremely effective when used to convey dusty material. Inlet and outlet can be sealed off by means of elastic sleeves. The vibrating tubular feeders are manufactured in a welded design, driven by two IFE unbalanced motors.

Designed for clients application

IFE-vibrating tubular feeders are designed and manufactured specifically to the application. Based on clients demand a wide variety of versions are available: 

  • tube made of mild or wear resistant steel, stainless or acid-proof steel
  • multiple inlet and outlet nozzles possible
  • manually or automatically operated slide gates
  • feeder available on swivel frames for optimized material distribution
  • bolted design for easy exchange of tube

IFE unbalanced motor - reliable due to quality

IFE-unbalanced motors made of high-grade components have reliably run for decades in vibrating conveying systems. A rigid motor shaft and roller bearings with long lifetime allow for permanent operation of the motors, even in harsh conditions.
The standard design allows for protection class IP66 according to EN60529 and includes a thermistor. IFE-unbalanced motors are available in 2-, 4-, 6- and 8-pole design. This broad variety allows for an optimized selection according to the specific application requirement.
