Rotary feed conveyors are used in a wide range of applications. They are most often used to move bulk materials, particularly liquids and other non-free-flowing materials. They are also used to move liquid cargo, as well as to move petroleum products. In some cases, they are even used in conjunction with other conveyors, such as roller conveyors and palletized conveyors.
Rotary Feed Manufacturers provide manufacturing that consists of two main components: a rotary shaft and a non-rotating bucket or container. The rotary shaft is the portion of the rotating machine; an electric motor typically powers it. Bucket containers, which may not have roller blades, are placed on either end of the rotary shaft and are powered either by electric or hydraulic motors. The conveyor itself contains both a motor and a variety of gears and rollers that allow the conveyor to move through various types of material, including large or small sections of solid or semi-solid materials. The conveyor’s speed depends largely on the size and weight of the bucket or container and varies according to the type of material it is moving.
