Abstract

703,492. Jigging conveyers. OKOLICSANYI, F., and GUNSON (SEEDS), Ltd., R. W. March 10, 1852 [March 9, 1951], No. 5711/51. Class 78 (1) [Also in Group XL (b)] To ensure that articles, e.g. seeds being fed to a sorting position by a vibrating conveyer, arrive at the sorting position singly, a second conveyer is provided which feeds the articles to the first conveyer, more quickly than they are delivered, means, e.g., photo-electric cells, being provided to stop the second conveyer if articles accumulate on the first. This conveyer is restarted if the supply falls. As shown seeds pass from a hopper 10 on to a vibrating conveyer 11 (the second conveyer) from which they pass to the surface of a conveyer 14 and then fall singly past a sorting mechanism 18. In the face of conveyer 14 is a channel by which seeds are led singly to the sensing position and a series of apertures 19 are provided in the bottom of the channel. Light from a source 20 passes to a photoelectric cell 21 beneath the conveyer. Unless all the apertures are covered by seeds the photo-cell operates to switch on the electromagnet 13 vibrating the conveyer. In a modification, Fig. 3 (not shown), a feeler moved by seeds piling up against it closes the switch of the second conveyer. An arrangement is described, Fig. 4 (not shown), in which a conveyer is mounted . on substantially vertical blade springs one of which is attracted by an electromagnet and another of which is detected by an electric pick up. The output of the pick-up is amplified and applied to the magnet to keep the conveyer vibrating at its natural oscillation frequency. Specifications 617,276, [Group XL (b)], 642,283 ; 642,284, 652,782, [both in Group XL (b)], and 667,669 are referred to.
