Adjustable Feed Control

Adjustable feed control built into a VIBROSCREEN® controls the feed rate to the VIBROSCREEN by adjusting the clearance between the vibrating throttle plate and bottom of the feed hopper. Clearance is infinitely adjustable.

The threaded rod is supported via a spider in the dust cover. This design allows the flow control plate to be brought up to the feed hopper or adapter. The rod, adjustable throttle and bottom of the hopper are enclosed by a molded flexible connector. The adjustable feed control unit can be supplied as a complete system or with a special discharge hopper adapter that can be connected to a customer's existing hopper.
