Eriez has produced a new video to walk viewers through the proper procedures for measuring displacement on electromagnetic and electromechanical feeders and conveyors. The two and a half minute video can be viewed from the Eriez website at or the company’s YouTube channel.

In the video, Rob Yandrick, Product Manager—Vibratory/Screening, explains that while a vibratory feeder with a factory installed tray is properly tuned at the factory before shipment, it is sometimes necessary for displacement to be read at a user’s site. He cautions that too much or too little displacement can signal problems.

The video describes the two types of displacement stickers: v-gauge and circle-gauge. Yandrick guides viewers through proper positioning for both types of stickers.

By utilizing a high-speed camera, the video shows close-up views of both the v-gauge and circle-gauge stickers while the feeders are in operation and moving at a high rate of speed. Yandrick also explains how to accurately read displacement shown on the stickers.
