With over 80 years of performance-proven history, Syntron feeders
are well known for their outstanding performance in bulk material
handling. Syntron feeders are subresonantly tuned to maintain stroke
consistency and speed stability, thus delivering higher capacities at
controlled feed rates. Other standard features include robust design,
tuneability, and the capability to work consistently under varying
headloads.
Syntron Vibrating Feeders feature electromagnetic design, offering
excellent durability and reliability. With no mechanical parts to wear
out or require lubrication, downtime and maintenance are extremely
rare, even under difficult or abusive environmental conditions.
Capacities range from 1,250 pounds to 20 tons per hour, based on
granular material weighing 100 pounds per cubic foot, and are configured for high-speed tuning to handle special applications. Lowfrequency models operate at 1,800 vpm and offer higher amplitude.
All other models operate at 3,600 cycles per minute on a 60 Hz
power supply. All Syntron feeder models conform to OSHA noise
standards and can be provided in accordance with FDA or USDA
specifications for use in the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic
industries. Feeder solutions for heavy material loads are also available.
Ideal for controlling bulk material in mixing,
blending, batching, grinding and packaging
operations, the ten standard Light Industry
Electromagnetic Vibrating Feeder models
operate with maximum capacities ranging

standard and special troughs
Standard troughs
All Syntron® Light Industry
Electromagnetic Vibrating Feeders are
furnished with mild steel or stainless
steel troughs. Mild steel troughs are
painted or powder coated inside and
outside with a high- quality
polyurethane.
To meet food and pharmaceutical
requirements, troughs are available in
a variety of stainless steel finishes. A
glass-beaded finish on stainless steel
troughs is available for non-food applications.
The rule of thumb for trough
selection suggests that the maximum
dimension of the largest particle to be
handled should not exceed one-third to
one-half the trough width. Contact
your FMC Technologies Sales Engineer
or Application Specialist for a complete
review of your application.
Modifications or additions to
feeder troughs should not be made
without first consulting FMC
Technologies.
Flat Pan troughs are furnished as
standard equipment for general
purpose feeding. The trough bottom
width is constant for its entire length.
Straight or tapered walls are available.
Special coating can be applied to
trough interiors. These include Teflon,
Urethane, rubber and others. Stainless
steel and glass trough liners are also
available to provide flat conveying
surfaces. In addition, covers and/or
downspouts are available.
Special trough styles
Tapered Width troughs provide nominal material concentration
at discharge.
Diagonal Discharge troughs are used to spread the material
discharge over the width of a belt or bucket lift positioned at
90 degrees.
V-Shaped troughs are used to discharge granular materials in
a concentrated, narrow stream.
Tubular troughs are used when sealed conveying or feeding
is required.
14
Special trough styles and drive configurations
FMC Technologies Material Handling Solutions offers a wide variety of
troughs including custom-designed troughs engineered specifically to meet your
application requirements.
Customer applications that require extra-wide or long troughs can be met
through the use of multiple drive feeders. Troughs for extra-width feeding can be
furnished with glass or stainless steel liners. These liner materials are desirable
for a uniform bulk material spread and to meet sanitary handling requirements.
Trough sizes for wide multiple-drive feeders vary from 12 to 36 inches in length
and from 12 inches to 12 feet in width. The number of drive units required for
the trough depends upon its overall size.
Syntron F-152 with covered trough.
With long, tubular troughs, pure clean materials can be conveyed without
atmospheric contamination. Poisonous, dusty materials can be conveyed without
danger to processing personnel. Hot materials can be conveyed without the danger
of burning belts or maintenance concerns.
For moving bulk materials over extended distances, multiple drives for extralength troughs offer several advantages. The extra drives ensure uniform product
movement when the unit is fitted with troughs of any desired length and capacity.
They can be equipped with open, flat-pan troughs with or without removable
covers, or tubular dust-tight troughs. Troughs can be provided in hot rolled steel
or stainless steel.
Syntron F-152 with divided trough.
For difficult applications where product drop is a concern, feeders constructed
with the drive units above the trough are available.
The bulk material flow rate of all Syntron® multiple-drive feeders can be easily
regulated. Control units for multiple-drive feeders are as easy to operate as the
control unit for a single-drive feeder.
All Syntron feeders are low maintenance. There are no bearings, rollers, pulleys
and chains to lubricate and replace; no drive belts to stretch and slip; no mechanical wearing parts. Syntron Vibrating Feeders have been selected for hundreds of
installations because of their versatility. The low-profile design requires minimum
headroom. Base mounting and suspension mounting configurations are available.

Syntron® vibra drive units
Syntron® Vibra Drive Units provide
directional vibratory conveying movement to a track, trough or any responsive surface. They are designed for use
with packaging machines or special
process equipment requiring a metered
flow of bulk materials or parts.
Vibra drive units are small, compact, electromagnetic drives encased
in dust-tight housings. The mounting
bracket has pre-drilled holes for easy
attachment to the mass to be vibrated.
Drive type and number of drives is
determined by the width, length and
the weight of the mass to be vibrated.
Below-deck, base mounting is
standard for all units. Controls are
available to operate a single-drive unit
or multiple-drive configurations.
Vibra Drive Units operate from
either 115 or 230 volt, single- phase,
50 or 60 cycle power. Models BF-2, BF-4
and BF-4 LF vibra drive units also
operate from 460 volt; all other units
require a step-down transformer when
operating voltage is 460 volt.
Syntron Vibra Drives are designed
for easy adjustment, including external
tuning on most models.
Syntron vibra drives are used by many
different industries. Here, an F-T01 drive
in a parts handling application.
Custom designed sandwiching processes rely on Syntron drives to ensure
consistent, controlled delivery and smooth, gentle cookie, wafer or cracker handling.
Syntron vibra drive units are isolated from the surrounding building and
supports by rubber mountings for most models. Three types of rubber mountings
are available. The BF-4 drive features sandwich mounts. The F-T02, BF-4 LF and
the Velocity® RS drives feature coil springs.

degradation. The flat feed angle enables fast shutdown
for improved accuracy and reduced “overfeed” in
weigh bucket feeding. Model RS features convenient
external air gap and spring adjustments for simple
feeder tuning, and coil spring isolators.
Versatility is the key that makes Syntron®
Velocity RS Drive Units capable of handling all types
of bulk products, including materials considered
difficult to feed. Velocity RS drives are ideally suited
for scale applications, but are also ideal for other
bulk feeding applications where high stroke (.090 .100 inches) or fast feed rate is required. In addition,
Velocity units are suitable for washdown in food or
pharmaceutical industries and can accept a wide
range of trough masses.
The Velocity RS is specifically designed for
feeding to weigh buckets on radial scales. Its unique,
patented spring configuration results in a flat feed
angle that eliminates the “whip” at the discharge end
of the trough. This produces a smooth material trajectory, improved accuracy and decreased product
Velocity RS Drive Unit handles trough masses
from 2 to 7 pounds.

Syntron® volumetric feeder machines
Syntron® volumetric feeder machines
Total control in material handling for feeding, blending
or packaging
Simple design and flexible control account for
the efficient, economical performance of Syntron®
Volumetric Feeder Machines, and the growing industrial
preference for them. These units can feed most dry
bulk materials and can be supplied to conform to FDA
and USDA specifications. Six Syntron Volumetric
Feeder Machine models are available.
Syntron Volumetric Feeder Machine designs include
four basic components: a supply hopper, a hopper
vibrator, a vibrating feeder and the supporting frame.
Supply hoppers are usually fabricated from mild steel
but are available in stainless steel. Most supply hoppers
are conical; however, rectangular hoppers are an
option. Adjusting the gate height between the hopper
and feeder trough regulates material depth for most
models. Material depth for model FM-T0 is regulated
by hopper tilt.
Arching, plugging or bridging of materials in the
hopper is prevented through incorporation of a Syntron
electromagnetic vibrator. The hopper vibrator features
a variable power control, assuring free flow of material
to the feeder trough. Vibrating feeders on the Syntron
Volumetric Feeder Machines operate at 3,600 vpm (at
60 Hz) and trough options include flat pan (standard),
V-shaped, tubular or screening troughs of mild or
stainless steel.
Because of their simple design, Syntron Volumetric
Feeder Machines are dependable and have an exceptionally long service life. There are no moving parts
such as motors, belts, gears, valves, connecting arms or
sliding rods to wear or lubricate. For dust-tight sealing,
special covered or tubular troughs feature flexible
seals on the discharge end of the supply hopper. In
addition, flexible seals that seal the top of the supply
hopper to an overhead chute, as well as removable
dust covers for the supply hopper are available.
22
Syntron Volumetric Feeder Machine with conical supply hopper.
Drives on Syntron® vibrating feeders are available
with dust-proof, dust-tight and waterproof construction.
These units are virtually noiseless, meeting applicable
OSHA specifications. Even at maximum feed, a hum
is the only indication that the machine is operating.
Syntron Volumetric Feeder Machines are supplied
with electric controls that can be mounted separately
at any desired location. Standard controls contain
operating switches, rectifiers and rheostats. The electric
control regulates the feed rate by varying the vibrating
intensity of the electromagnetic feeder. A graduated
dial on the control panel permits variation of the flow
speeds. Timers are also available to provide intermittent
feed.
Capacities of Syntron Volumetric Feeder Machines
vary with different materials. Lighter and finer
materials result in less capacity and heavier materials
result in higher capacities.
