The Vibratory Furnace Charger delivers required capacity, stores hopper of required capacity and moves carriage with driving arrangement. The Vibratory Furnace Charger eliminates problems like high labor cost, hazards operators faced in foundries, melting shops etc. the automation of Vibratory Furnace Charger allows foundry men to work safely, eliminating injuries arising from molten metal splash. The Vibratory Furnace Charger allows maximum furnace utilization by charging it quickly. Furnace lining damage is also avoided by Vibratory Furnace Charger.
Construction Vibratory Furnace Charger consists of a vibrating feeder mounted on a moving trolley with a storage hopper mounted above the feeder. Control panel for operating the system. Cable reeling Drum / Cable Drag Chain. The metallic components like scrap, bales, pig iron and foundry retains are stored in the hopper. The hopper shape is specially designed to enable bulky and irregular scrap pieces to be extracted without problem.
Working Principle The required amount of scrap metal is loaded into the storage hoper at the loading point. The trolley the carries the vibrating feeder along with the storage hopper to the furnace charging point. Here, the vibrating feeder is energized and the material is effectively discharged into the furnace as per the required capacity. As the metal is melted down, fresh batch of metal can be fed into the furnace thereby keeping the furnace full. The capacity of the vibrating feeder can be varied by varying the amplitude of variations. The amplitude of vibrations can be varied by adjusting the position of centrifugal weights or by using a variable frequency drive (optional). A control panel specially designed to suit individual client requirement depending on the sequence of operations required is provided.
Features and Advantages
Very fast as compared to manual charging of furnace thereby enabling optimum use of the melting system.
Minimum heat loss of the furnace since the charging process can be maintained continuously at the required rate.
Extremely controlled charging of material into the furnace.
Prevents damage to the furnace lining since the material is properly guided into the furnace so as to avoid the material from hitting the furnace walls.
No direct exposure of manpower to the furnace thereby preventing dangerous accidents due to metal splash (since the operator can carry out the operations at a very safe distance.)
