Vibrating Grizzly Feeder Features Robust Design, Safer Upkeep

Superior Industries’ Freedom vibrating grizzly feeder (VGF) is available in configurations to feed up 1,400 tons per hour (t/h). According to the company, it has engineered several key differentiating features into its design, including a much more robust pan section for improved impact resistance and durability, and grizzly cartridges designed to bolt into the feeder’s frame—one set of bars is applicable for flat or 5° applications, so owners can limit their stock to one style. Bottle-jack lifting points are built into the spring section of the Freedom VGF, which eliminates lifting of the pan with cranes or bucket loaders for spring replacement, thus increasing safety during this common maintenance task. The new VGF is offered in pan widths of 36 in. to 60 in. Options include customization to the feeder’s width, grizzly sections, punch plate and finger deck.
