ERIE, Pennsylvania – Eriez has a new video to walk viewers through the proper procedures for measuring displacement on electromagnetic and electromechanical feeders and conveyors. It is two-and-a-half minutes long and can be viewed at Eriez.com/Content/Videos/ or the company’s YouTube channel at YouTube.com/Eriez.
In the video, vibratory/screening product manager Rob Yandrick explains that while a vibratory feeder with a factory installed tray is properly tuned before shipment, sometimes it may be necessary for displacement to be read at a user’s site. He cautions that too much or too little displacement can signal problems.
The video describes the two types of displacement stickers: v-gauge and circle-gauge. Yandrick guides viewers through proper positioning for both types of stickers.
By utilizing a high speed camera, the video shows close-up views of both the v-gauge and circle-gauge stickers while the feeders are in operation and moving at a high rate of speed. Yandrick provides a thorough explanation of the process for accurately reading displacement shown on the stickers.
