Rotex Direct Drive Feeder
Scalping and de-dusting in bulk.
The cost-effective Direct Drive Feeder™ (and conveyor) meets all the process requirements of bulk handling industries and can be configured horizontally or inclined to fit your exact floor space.
How It Works
The utilization of contra-rotating electromechanical motors imparts both an upward and forward stroke to the main feeder body. The angle of the motors determines the preference toward either lift or conveying. The stroke can be adjusted from zero to around 10 millimeters in most cases.
Standard barrel-type solid rubber mounts can be used with the addition of safety straps. Alternatively, Rosta-style mechanical mounts are generally preferred since these restrict the movement in the linear plane and minimize throw during the final stages of slowing down. For suspension design, isolation rods and rubber mounts are provided along with safety straps.

Multiple Mounting Options
Various installation options include Rosta, barrel or suspension-style mounts. Safety straps are fitted where relevant.
Rotex can provide either an open type or fully enclosed type interface with or without a rod gate isolation system for hopper bottom installations.
For floor-level installations, structural support stands are available onto which the feeder is mounted. Under normal operation, these stands need to be adequately secured to the floor or supporting media.
For all suspension designs, rod type support hangers and solid rubber mounts are preferred. Safety straps are supplied as standard.
It is critical that on any installation, there is clearance between the vibratory pan and any surrounding structure. The discharge pan requires around 75 millimeters of clearance to allow for any start/stop movement.
Where two electromechanical motors are fitted, both motors must be wired to the same stop/start switch and must be wired to contra-rotate.
For hopper-bottom installations, Rotex can provide either an open type or fully enclosed type interface with or without a rod gate isolation system.
