furnace charger is effective solutions to problems such as high labour
cost, hazards operators faced in foundries, melting shops etc. Such a
kind of automation allows foundry men to work at a safe distance thus
preventing injuries arising out of molten metal splash. It also
facilitates in rapid and quick charging of the furnace thereby allowing
maximum utilization of the furnace, in addition to this, the damage to
furnace lining is avoided which normally occurs in manual charging of
ORTON make vibratory furnace chargers basically
comprise of the following parts
- Vibrating Feeder suitable for delivering required capacity.
- Storage hopper of required capacity.
- Moving carriage with driving arrangement.
- Control panel for operating the system.
- Cable reeling Drum / Cable Drag Chain (Optional)
A storage hopper specially designed for storing the required
quantity of material like feeder. The hopper is designed so as to
foundry returns etc. is mounted above the scrap pieces without problem.
The vibrating feeder spreads out the material into individual pieces
towards the discharge for effective and uniform distribution of the
material before discharging into the furnace. The vibrating feeder and
the hopper are mounted on a moving trolley which is driven with the help
of a motor and geared unit. The speed of the trolley can be designed to
suit individual customer requirement. Special charger can be designed
for 2 motions (cross and longitudinal travel) where more than one
furnace is to be charged using a single charger.
The required amount of scrap metal is loaded into
the storage hoper at the loading point. The trolley then carries the
vibrating feeder along with the storage hopper to the furnace charging
point. Here, the vibrating feeder is energised 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.
