Titan Feeder System
Railcar & Truck
The Titan Feeder System is a unique multi-feeder system for discharging large-slotted hoppers in railcar and truck unloading. These heavy-duty, cascading electromechanical feeders are mounted below large slotted hoppers and deliver a controlled feed rate onto belt conveyors. Each feeder is energized thru a PLC with the JVI proprietary algorithm for optimum hopper unloading.
Heavy Duty Industrial Feeders,
Made in the USA
JVI has been providing Titan Feeder Systems to customers around the United States since the early 2000’s.
Available with Unbalanced motors or Exciter Drives/gearboxes, JVI Titan Feeder Systems can be configured to handle almost any type of materials you need to move.
Across Many Industries
These feeders are used to handle heavy duty applications across a wide range of industries including:
With Titan Feeder Systems
JVI’s Titan Feeder System can reduce pit depth requirements, stack up heights, and excavation costs. The Titan’s series of cascading feeders handles dissimilar materials seamlessly while eliminating material compaction and maintenance issues.
How Titan Feeder Systems Work
The long slotted hopper above the Titan System is loaded by truck or railcar. The material load is detected, and the Titan System is energized. Once energized the proprietary algorithm in the PLC sequences the feeders to achieve front to back discharge of the hopper. The Titan feeders are run off VFDs to allow feed rate adjust ability to hit the exact desired unloading rates and to accommodate different materials.
Avoid Material Compaction
Unlike belt or apron feeders, the Titan Feeder System discharges material from front to back so only free flowing material is being moved. This creates a clear path for material to feed, avoiding compaction of static material in the direction of flow.
Less Wear and Maintenance
The low average system duty and distributed utilization of the multiple vibratory feeders (which have inherently low maintenance) offer substantial reduction in maintenance costs and downtime in comparison to belt and apron feeders.
Low Energy Consumption
Because the whole feeding unit is not always in operation at the same time – each feeder works independently – the power requirements diminish when compared to belt and apron feeders.
Minimal Vertical Head Room
The Titan Feeder System reduces the vertical height required for the unloading pit. The reduction in height allows for lower pit excavation and construction costs while reducing water table concerns.
Pre-set capabilities can handle various types of materials from the same hopper.
High Storage Capacities
By incorporating long slotted hoppers and the Titan Feeder System, a plant can store maximum material volume in a smaller work envelope reducing the pit depth and installation costs.
Reduced Impact Damage
A residual layer of material remains on the feeders to protect against impact damage when charging the hopper.
Customized to the Application
JVI will customize the Titan Feeder System to meet the exact application, discharge rates, hopper volumes, and work envelope requirements.
