A ball bearing manufacturer was having problems with the bearings clogging in the chute to the feeder tray below. They had to keep shutting the line down to manually clear the chute and as a result, were losing significant production time.
To solve the problem, they installed the VIBCO BVS-130 Silent Turbine vibrator from Vibco Australia . They now experience little or no clogging in the chute. The ball bearings pour smoothly and more quickly to the feeder tray below and they no longer have to shut down the line to clear the chute.
After installing the BVS-130 Silent Turbine vibrator the customer received the following benefits:
- Increased feed rate of ball bearings
- Increased production with less down time
- Reduced loss of man hours needed to unclog the chute
Technical Specifications of the BVS-130 Silent Turbine vibrators:
- 10,500 VPM at 80 PSI
- 75 lbs. of force
- 5.5 CFM at 80 PSI
- 67 dB at 80 PSI
