Steps To Check The Failure Of The Vacuum Feeder

The vacuum feeder is an indispensable conveying equipment for the powder industry. It is used for material conveying in all aspects, so the frequency of use is very high. Some equipment will inevitably fail after being used for a long time. Therefore, as the technical leader. Time should be taken to solve problems, so as not to cause production problems due to equipment failures and delay production. In this regard, please see the following steps for troubleshooting the vacuum feeder:

Check step 1: Check the power source. Manual test interface of the touch screen of the vacuum feeder, start the vacuum pump and observe whether the airflow of the vacuum gauge and the pressure relief port is normal. In addition, check whether the vacuum and air flow meet the requirements. When the vacuum degree exceeds the normal value, the transportation pipeline on the surface of the equipment will be blocked; and when the vacuum degree is lower than the normal value, there will be air leakage on the equipment surface.

Inspection Step 2: Check the leakproofness of the pipeline. After starting the vacuum feeder, check whether there is suction at the feed port. If there is no suction, check whether the material is blocked. If the suction is small, check whether the filter element is blocked and the pipeline is leaking.
Inspection Step 3: Check the butterfly valve sealing ring (if have). As a moving part of the feeder, the butterfly valve will inevitably wear out after long-term use. The occurrence of air leakage may result in low vacuum, slow suction, or no suction. At this time, the feeder cover should be opened to observe whether the sealing ring is worn. If wear occurs, it should be replaced in time.

Inspection Step 4: Check whether the vacuum feeder is operating normally. According to the working principle of the feeder, the operation of each butterfly valve is ruled out one by one. Check whether the compressed air pressure is sufficient. This kind of probability is extremely low, do not rule out compressed air, containing too many impurities to damage the solenoid valve and cylinder.
