The GeoMate Vibratory Feeder is a mass flow batching system based upon our exclusive GeoTray feed tray and MassMate mass flow hopper. Mass Flow Feeding, High Frequency Dribble Feed, Instant Off and No Moving Parts make it the Batching feeder of choice for a wide variety of dry bulk products.
GeoMate Mass Flow Feeding System
The GeoMate Vibratory feeder design is simplistic in nature. With one basic design, very small, field changeable modifications are made to each GeoTray to meet the needs of a broad range of products. With only one basic feeder design the operator’s learning curve is substantially reduced.
In 2004 3Sigma provided 72 GeoMate Vibratory feeders to batch more than 70 different products ranging from Sulfur to Steel Wool. 3Sigma provided the same GeoMate Vibratory feeders for all products with only three different GeoTray designs.
The Results: One basic design has allowed the operators to fully learn the feeders within weeks. To date not one spare part has been ordered for this system.
How it Works
The basic problem for “standard” vibratory feeders is the inability to reliably deliver material from the hopper to the tray. Small or skinny outlets create bridging and ratholing within the hopper. This fact had eliminated vibratory feeders from many applications in the past.
The GeoMate is a Mass Flow batching system. All MassMate hoppers are designed for mass flow. First, the hopper wall angles are steeper than the product’s wall friction characteristics thereby promoting material flow in all areas of the bin. Second, the outlet is sized larger than the product’s arching dimension, thereby preventing bridging.
In addition the GeoTray feed tray promotes mass flow by shearing the entire cross sectional outlet of the hopper. This “live bottom” action, working in unison with the MassMate hopper, provides a true mass flow feeding system.
No moving parts and an industry best 2-year warranty, translates into the lowest operating cost in the industry.
