The customer faced a problem with the flow of flour down their chutes into the batch sifter. The flow slowed down when the flour clumped up, affecting their production and causing downtime since the unclumping had to be done manually.
In addition to wasted time, the customer was getting improperly mixed batches leading to product loss.
The customer realised that they could increase production and overall product quality if they could just get the flour to flow correctly.
Vibco installed a silent pneumatic turbine vibrator at the customer’s facility. Model VS-190 silent pneumatic turbine vibrator gave the proper amount of vibration to the chute to keep the flour flowing consistently into the batch sifter.
The installation has eliminated the need to manually unclump the flour and also ensures accurate product batches every time for the customer.
A key benefit of the silent pneumatic turbine vibrator is that it uses non-lubricated air so there is no oil exhaust to contaminate the product.
