GLOSSARY OF EQUIPMENT 84-85 • The chute sides must have an inclination of 70° at the edges. For slighter slopes there can be waste retention, jamming and irregular feeding. It has been found that the 70° wall slope in the chute at the area closest to the feeder must become vertical at a height of approximately 0.5 metres to prevent the formation of domes and jams. • In the unloading operation, the guide chute must be large enough at the top to prevent waste from spilling out. • The feeder rate is determined by the flow volume to be supplied. In any case, the feeder rate can be controlled by the operator depending on the calculated flow. • The conveyor system (boards, plates or belt) must be provided along its entire length with blades or ribs acting as lifters to facilitate the advance of the materials. They must have a height of 5 to 10 cm and be removable in order to use the most suitable one in each case. The length of each blade must cover 60% to 80% of the feeder width to prevent materials from not being carried. • Feeders must have an adjustable vein limiter in the form of vertical rods placed raised above the inclined area and near the highest end of the LIGHT WEIGHT PACKAGING SORTING PLANTS 3
