Controlling the feedrate of material from a vibratory pipe conveyor using an electro-magnetic vibrator and load cell system

Submitted in compliance with the requirements for the National Masters Diploma in Technology: Electronic Engineering, Technikon Natal, 1994. / This work presents a novel way of controlling the feed rate of raw material from a vibratory pipe feeder system. The system consists of a hopper, feeder pipe, electromechanical vibrator and a loadcell which measures the mass of the complete system. Raw material is gravity fed onto the vibrating pipe whose amplitude of vibration controls the amount of material fed. / M
