Eriez 5-Star Service Repairs Vibratory Feeders, Saving Customers Money

July 22, 2016 - "Press Releases"

Erie, PA—Eriez® 5-Star® Service restores customers’ standard and specialized vibratory feeders to “like new” performance, typically at half the cost or less than investing in new equipment. The 5-Star team is headquartered at Eriez’ expansive 5-Star Service Center in Erie, PA, but personnel can also travel to customers’ facilities to offer on-site service and repairs, even on short notice.

In addition to standard electromagnetic and mechanical vibratory feeders, a vast array of specialized units are in operation in a broad assortment of diverse applications. A specialized feeder includes a tray design that is not standard. These customizations may include screener decks, sorting decks, special inlet(s) or outlet(s), special covers, special finishes, special dimensions or multiple drives.  Specialized feeders may also be designed for hazardous locations.

According to Eric Taylor, Eriez 5-Star Service Center Manager, repairs to specialized and standard vibratory drives are often fairly similar.  He explains, “Trays may need to be repaired or replaced due to broken welds or missing parts. Sometimes customers are using feeders for applications that have changed over time without having the equipment professionally modified to match the new requirements.  For instance, we often see tray damage resulting from increased tonnage over the years without upgrading equipment to accommodate this flow.”

Vibratory feeder repairs generally include a new electrical assembly, tuning springs, elastomer, shock mounts, diaphragm and smaller components such as bolts and washers. Eriez offers “as new” warranties on all repairs. Warranties are 12-months or longer, depending on the model.

In addition to vibratory feeders, Eriez 5-Star Service rebuilds suspended electromagnets, scrap drum magnets, wet drum separators, metal detectors and more. Eriez 5-Star Service includes a wide range of rebuild, repair and re-certification programs for a broad variety of processing equipment.
