August 22, 2016 – Superior Industries Inc., a U.S.-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, continues development of new material processing and handling solutions from Rock Face to Load Out with its launch of the new Freedom Vibrating Grizzly Feeder (VGF). Manufactured in widths to feed up 1,400 tons per hour (TPH), Superior engineers incorporated several key, differentiating features into their designs for the Freedom Feeder.

For improved impact resistance and durability, material producers will have access to a much more robust pan section than some previous designs on the market. In addition, and exclusive to Superior, the grizzly cartridges are designed to bolt into the feeder’s frame. One set of bars are applicable for flat or 5° applications, so owners and operators can limit their stock to one style. Another key feature is bottle jack lifting points incorporated into the spring section of the Freedom Feeder. Avoid lifting the pan with cranes or bucket loaders and simply use a bottle jack for spring replacement, which greatly increases safety during this common maintenance task.

Superior designs and manufactures its new Freedom VGF in pan widths of 36” to 60”. The same machine can be incorporated into horizontal/flat or 5° incline applications. Options include customization to the feeder’s width, grizzly sections, punch plate and finger deck.
