Vibco Australia is a wholly owned Australian company specialising in industrial vibratory equipment designed for bulk material handling applications.
A customer had a problem with materials jamming in their portable hoppers when moving them from one site to another. During transportation, the processed wood products would pack so badly it was almost impossible to unload them.
Two BVS-320 pneumatic turbine vibrators were installed onto each side of the hopper. Rubber wheels were mounted on each corner of the stand to prevent the vibration from being transmitted through the stand and onto the floor. The vibration kept the material flowing even after transport.
The installation of the pneumatic turbine vibrators resulted in various benefits for the customer:
- Material flow problems were eliminated
- Production downtime was negligible
- Silent operation removed scope for noise complaints
Vibco also offers Model 2P-150-1 single phase electric vibrators and Model 2P-150-3 3-phase electric vibrators.
