The first body 122 has a fixed length, a width and a height, and has a box shape with an open top.
The first screen net 124 is installed at an upper portion of the first body 122 so as to be spaced apart from the bottom surface of the first body 122 by a predetermined height. In the first screen net 124, a plurality of fine screening holes are formed in the entire first screen net 124 so as to have a network structure. Accordingly, the first screen net 124 filters out fine foreign matter (larval secretions, feces, adults of small size, etc.) from the larva dropped through the input port 115, And is accommodated in the inner space of the first body 122.
The first body 122 is connected to a vibrating screen driving unit (not shown) to perform vibrational motion in a height direction. The vibrating motion of the first body 122 causes the larva placed on the first screen net 124 and the first body 122, So that the foreign matter contained in the inside of the body 122 moves from one side to the other. Details of the vibration selecting unit driving unit will be described later.
The foreign matter discharge pipe 126 is installed to protrude downward from the bottom surface of the first body 122 at the other end of the first body 122. The foreign matter discharge pipe 126 communicates with a fine foreign matter discharge port 128 (see FIGS. 1 and 2) formed on one side surface of the main body 100 and is inclined in the width direction of the first main body 122 (see FIG. 4). Accordingly, the minute foreign matter contained in the first body 122 moves to the left side from the one side to the foreign matter discharge pipe 126, and the minute foreign matter that falls to the foreign matter discharge pipe 126 moves toward the width direction along the slope, And is discharged to the outside of the main body 100 through the foreign matter discharge port 128.
On the other hand, the larva lying in the first screen net 124 moves to the other (right) end and then falls to the bottom.
The larvae from which the fine particles are removed move to the right end and fall and move to the conveyor belt 130 while passing through the guide plate 160 and the rotation guide member 170. Here, the guide plate 160 may be supported by the main body 180 or may be installed to be supported by the foreign matter suction air blowing unit 180. In this case, the length of the rotation guide member 170 may be adjusted, or the length of the rotation guide member 170 may be adjusted or the length of the first vibration selecting unit 120 and the right The length of the end can be adjusted appropriately.
The rotation guide member 170 is provided between each of the other ends of the first vibration selecting unit 120 and the conveyor belt 130 so that the larva discharged from the other end of the first vibration selecting unit 120 is conveyed to the conveyor belt 130. [ (Dashed line) in which the larvae discharged from the other end of the first vibrating screening unit 120 are stacked on the second vibrating screening unit 140, ) By the user's operation. When the rotation guide member 170 is in the first position, the apparatus according to the present invention performs a normal operation, whereby the larva passing through the first vibration selecting unit 120 falls on the conveyor belt 130 do. When the rotation guide member 170 is located at the second position, the apparatus according to the present invention rapidly selects the larva without sorting dead larvae, The rough larva falls directly to the second vibration selecting unit 140.
The foreign matter suction blowing unit 180 is installed to be supported or coupled to the main body 100 so as to be positioned at the side of the rotation guide member 170 and has an air inlet at the side facing the main body 100, (Such as a larva or a pupa and a grain shell such as rice husk) contained in the larva discharged from the other end is discharged to the outside of the main body. Although not shown, the foreign substance suction air blowing unit 180 is connected to a separate pipe provided with the suction fan. The suction force of the intake fan needs to be appropriately adjusted since only a light foreign substance is to be sucked except the larva.
The conveyor belt 130 is installed under the first vibration sorting unit 120 to transfer the larva removed from the first vibration sorting unit 120 to one side from the other side. The conveyor belt 130 is driven by a conveyor belt drive unit not shown. On the other hand, the conveyor belt 130 may be formed of a coarse surface of the conveyor belt 130, so that the larvae of the larva can be conveyed with a sticking of the larva, so that the conveyor belt 130 rotates 180 ° at one ), The larvae will be carried on the conveyor belt, but the dead larva will fall. The dead larvae do not move on the conveyor belt because there is no movement of the legs. The dropped dead larvae are collected in a dead larva collection box 192 provided on the floor.
The conveying block member 190 is installed in the width direction directly below the conveyor belt 130 so as to face the conveyor belt 130 on a path that the conveyor belt 130 rotates by 180 ° and moves from one side to the other side. A very small clearance is formed between the conveying blocking member 190 and the conveyor belt 130 so that the conveying blocking member 190 and the conveyor belt 130 are closely attached to each other. Therefore, the larva sticking to the conveyor belt 130 is clogged with the conveying blocking member 190, separated from the conveyor belt 130, and then falls downward.
The second vibration detecting unit 140 is installed at a lower portion of the conveyor belt 130 to separate and sort the larvae according to their sizes while transferring the larva dropped by the transfer blocking member 190 from one side to the other side, 100). The second vibration screening unit 140 is configured to include a second body 142, a second screen mesh 144, and a small larva outlet 146 in detail.
The second body 142 has a shape having a predetermined length, a width and a height, and an open upper end. The second body 142 is connected to the first body 122 by a connecting member so that the second body 142 vibrates in a height direction in cooperation with the first body 122.
The second screen screen 144 is installed on the upper portion of the second body 142 so as to be spaced apart from the bottom surface of the second body 142 by a predetermined height. A plurality of screening holes are formed in the second screen network 144 such that the second screen network 144 has a network structure like the first screen network 124. The screening holes of the second screen network 144 are formed to be relatively larger than the screening holes of the first screen network 124 to filter out the larva among the larvae. Thus, the second screen net 144 filters relatively small larvae from the larvae dropped by the transport blocking member 190, and the small larvae that have passed through the screening holes of the second screen mesh 144, And is received within the body 142.
The small larva outlet 146 is formed at the bottom of the other end of the second body 142. Accordingly, the small larva received in the inner space of the second body 142 falls down through the small larva outlet 146 while being transferred from one side to the left, and is collected in the small larva reservoir 194 on the corresponding bottom surface .
On the other hand, the large larva placed on the second screen mesh 144 moves to the other (right) end and then falls downward, and is collected in the large larva storage box 196 on the corresponding bottom surface.
The vibrating selector drive unit is connected to either one of the first body 122 of the first vibration selector 120 or the second body 142 of the second vibration selector 140, The upper body 122 and the second body 142 in the height direction. Therefore, the large larva and the small larva received in the second vibration sorting unit 140 move to the right, respectively, from the larvae and the fine foreign substances contained in the first vibration selector 120. The vibration selecting unit driving unit is not limited to a specific structure, but may include a vibration motor, for example, and may have a structure in which a driving belt and a driving pulley are connected to the vibration motor. On the other hand, although not shown, a buffer spring can be installed on the first body or the second body, so that vibrations generated by driving the vibration motor can be buffered.
3 to 5, the operation of the insect screening apparatus according to the embodiment of the present invention having the above-described structure will be described.
When a plurality of larvae including foreign substances are supplied to the supply part 110 as indicated by an arrow C, they move along the inclined bottom surface of the supply part 110 as indicated by the arrow E and enter the first vibratory screening part 120).
The larva including the foreign substance drops to the first screen net 124 of the first vibration screening unit 120 so that the minute foreign matter passes through the fine screening hole of the first screen net 124 and enters the first body 122, And is accommodated in the inner space. On the other hand, the first vibration selecting unit 120 vibrates in the height direction by the vibrating screen driving unit (not shown), so that the larva having the microscopic foreign substance and the foreign substance filtered moves as indicated by the arrow F.
The fine particles move downward to the fine particle discharge pipe 126 and move along the inclined surface while being discharged to the outside of the main body 100 through the fine particle discharge port 128. In the fine particle collecting box City). The larvae from which the fine foreign substances are removed move to the right end and drop as indicated by the arrow H and move to the conveyor belt 130 while passing through the guide plate 160 and the rotation guide member 170.
Meanwhile, the light foreign substances contained in the larvae are sucked into the foreign matter suction airflow 180 while being moved to the conveyor belt 130, and are discharged to the outside of the main body 100.
The larva is moved as indicated by the arrow I by the rotation of the conveyor belt 130 because the surface of the conveyor belt 130 is formed of a rough texture so that the larval larva sticks to the surface of the conveyor belt 130, The larva does not stick to the conveyor belt 130. Therefore, when the conveyor belt rotates 180 degrees from the left end, the dead larva falls downward as indicated by arrow J and is collected by the dead larva collecting box 192. The larva of the larva is attached to the conveyor belt 130, do. The larvae of the larvae are separated from the conveyor belt 130 while falling on the conveyance blocking member 190 during the movement and fall down to the second vibration selector 140 as indicated by the arrow L. [
The larvae fall into the second screen mesh 144 of the second vibrating screen 140 so that the larva having a relatively small size passes through the screening hole of the second screen mesh 144, And is accommodated in the space. On the other hand, as in the case of the first vibration selecting unit 120, the second vibration selecting unit 140 vibrates in the height direction, so that the small larva and the large larva move as indicated by the arrow M.
 The small larva existing in the second body 142 moves downward as indicated by the arrow N through the small larva outlet 146 while being moved to the right side and is collected into the small larva collection box 194. The large larva on the second screen mesh 144 moves to the right end and falls as indicated by the arrow O to fall into the larva larva collection box 196. [
As described above, according to the present invention, the first and second vibrating screens separate the large larvae and the small larvae from the first vibrating screen, and filter light foreign substances from the larvae by the second airborne air outlet, Various foreign substances can be filtered out, and sorting can be done according to the size, so that the convenience of work and productivity are excellent, and the quality of the selected product (larva) is excellent. Further, by separating dead larvae with a conveyor belt as a rough material and separating the larva from the conveyor belt by the conveying blocking member, the quality of the selected product is also excellent.
