Title (EN) MATERIAL FEEDING APPARATUS
(FR) CHARGEUR DE MATERIAUX
Abstract:
(EN) Material feeding apparatus (10) comprising a hopper (14) tapering inwardly and downwardly into a horizontal cylindrical tube (16) leading to an outlet (12). A material conveying screw (18) is rotatably mounted in the tube (16). An open wire mesh agitator (24) is provided within the hopper (14) and has a substantially corresponding shape thereto. The agitator (24) and screw (18) are driven by a motor (20) to agitate material in the hopper (14) and to move material along the length of the tube (16).
(FR) Chargeur de matériaux (10) comprenant une trémie (14) se rétrécissant vers le bas et vers l'intérieur pour former un tuyau cylindrique horizontal (16) débouchant sur un orifice de sortie (12). Une hélice tournante servant à transporter les matériaux (18) est installée dans le tuyau (16). Un agitateur en treillis de fil métallique à claire-voie (24), placé dans la trémie, a une forme correspondant sensiblement à cette dernière, l'agitateur (24) et l'hélice (18) sont actionnés par un moteur (20) afin de brasser les matériaux emmagasinés dans la trémie (14) et de les faire circuler le long du tuyau (16).
