GLOSSARY OF EQUIPMENT 82-83 TYPES There are several types of feeders used in segregation plants: • Metal plates or conveyor belts with ribs or blades. • Moving base with drive strips. CHARACTERISTICS • 40° inclination to adjust feeding in case of metal plate or conveyor belt feeders. In this way the waste unloaded in the chute flips over itself naturally, moving towards the bottom of the feeder, being distributed evenly and obtaining a proper dosage of the process. If the inclination is less than 40°, the dosing feeder becomes a conventional conveyor. If it is greater, the waste will slide to the bottom of the feeder, causing flow gaps and irregular feeding. • The feeder chute must be large enough to hold two crane or shovel loads. 1. Feeding with grapple hook in storage pit. 2. Feeding with loading shovel in unload yard. 1 2 LIGHT WEIGHT PACKAGING SORTING PLANTS
