Material-transporting characteristics of selected vibrating equipment: M34-20/95E-PDF

“In order to provide for the performance of completely integrated pilot-plant operations, and to facilitate bulk-materials-handling in the Industrial Minerals Milling Section of the Mineral Processing Division, a study was made of transporting and feeding machines that would provide the necessary characteristics of versatility, mobility, accuracy and ease of cleaning. Vibrating equipment came closest to filling all of these requirements, and the Section acquired a conveyor unit, a short elevator and two types of feeder to allow for study of material movement by this means. Experimental work indicated that the machines selected had a broad range of application to the movement of bulk minerals and rocks; would be appropriate for connecting links between processing units; and were reliable, easy to maintain and easy to clean. Capacities and operating characteristics are outlined. Within the confines of an experimental processing plant, requiring changes for each investigation undertaken, the mobility of such units make them very useful tools. They present a neat appearance and are readily stored when not in service. Although presenting drawbacks in some areas of performance, the over-all practicality of these units for the purposes required was clearly demonstrated"--Abstract, p. i.
