Electromechanical Pan Feeders
Heavy Duty, Time Tested
Bulk Material Handlers
JVI Electromechanical Vibratory Pan Feeders are heavy-duty, time-tested performers in bulk material handling. Designed for discharging hoppers and conveying material up to 30 feet, electromechanical pan feeders are used across a wide variety of industries to reliably and consistently feed material at desired feed rates. Every JVI electromechanical feeder is designed specifically for the application and work envelope requirements.
Heavy Duty Industrial Feeders,
Made in the USA
For over 25 years, JVI has been providing electromechanical vibratory pan feeders, also known as brute force feeders or shaker feeders, to customers across North America and around the world.
Available with Unbalanced motors or Exciter Drives/gearboxes, JVI electromechanical feeders can be configured to handle almost any type of materials you need to move.
Across Many Industries
Aggregates, Mining, Steel, Recycling, and many more. These feeders can be utilized in light, medium, and heavy-duty applications including:
- Bin & Hopper Discharge
- Discharging Truck Dump Stations
- Rail Car Hoppers
- Surge Tunnel Feeders
- Conveying Material & Spreading Material onto downstream crushers, mixers, screeners or dryers
Electromechanical Pan Feeders
Engineered For Your Specific Application
From the type and amount of material being fed to the environmental conditions of the operating location, each application comes with its own unique challenges. The JVI engineering team works closely with our customers to provide completely custom solutions designed to handle their exact material and environmental conditions.
Explosion Proof to Food Grade
From stainless steel pans required for food grade material to explosion proof motors for hazardous areas to everything in between. JVI feeders can be constructed to meet your unique application.
Same Process, Better Performance
The JVI engineering team excels at designing new feeders to be retrofitted into your current process. This means you get all the benefits of a new higher performing feeder without the costs associated with having to redesign your current process.
Integrated Chute Work
Cut down engineering costs and ensure an easier installation by adding an integrated chute work package to your feeder. Incorporated to the top of the feeder the chute work enables easy bolt on installation to storage vessels. The integrated chute work supports the feeder and also acts as a transition mechanism for controlling headloads, ensuring proper material flow from the vessel to the downstream process.
Single Mass Design Provides
Superior Performance & Reliability
JVI electromechanical feeders utilize single mass technology in which the feeder is driven by two electromechanical unbalanced motors, or exciter drives, mounted directly to the feeder body, also known as the saddle. The single mass technology eliminates the need for exciter springs or natural frequency tuning for generating the required peak to peak movement of two mass feeders that are typically found in the North American market. The single mass feeder’s rugged design enables it to provide a long and reliable service life.
Simple Design = Higher Run Time
By engineering a simple design with the fewest moving parts possible, JVI can manufacture pan feeders that keep working even in the harshest industrial environments. JVI’s single mass design eliminates the exciter springs, v-belt drives, and sheaves used in two-mass vibratory feeders which require regular maintenance and replacement.
No Tuning Required
JVI single mass feeders do not require tuning to provide the vibration necessary to keep material moving. Mechanical failures and tuning issues caused by sticking material, high headloads, low headloads, or no material present are not an issue.
Motors Rated to Work in Your Application
JVI feeders are powered by electromechanical unbalanced motors designed exclusively for our vibratory equipment and selected per application requirements. These motors are available in:
- 94 different models including 3600, 1800, 1200 and 900 RPM versions
- Rated for continuous duty at 100% force output and suitable for wash-down
- Explosion-proof with CSA & ATEX certifications available
Enhanced Feed Rate Adjustability
When operated with a standard variable frequency drive (VFD), the feed rate from the JVI electromechanical vibratory pan feeder can be continuously adjusted in real time to meet the changing dynamics of the industrial process. This allows for the production process to be automated by having sensors down the production line that communicate with the VFD and adjusting the feed rate as necessary. This provides the optimal amount of dry bulk material for downstream equipment (Crushers, Screens, etc.), keeping the production process running smoothly.
