Vibco Australia installed a silent pneumatic turbine vibrator at a sugar manufacturing facility to resolve material flow problems in production.
The customer was facing problems in maintaining a consistent flow of 8000 lbs. of wet sugar per hour because of build-up beneath the dryer feed screw. The caking of the wet sugar caused a blockage in the vertical feed chute.
This resulted in serious material flow problems and downtime caused by stopping production mid-way while employees manually banged on the sides of the chute to dislodge the caked sugar.
Vibco installed two silent pneumatic turbine vibrators on the feed chute to decrease the build-up.
Model VS-320 silent pneumatic turbine vibrators ensure that the sugar flows continuously and employees no longer have to interrupt their work to loosen the caked sugar.
Key benefits derived by the customer from the silent pneumatic turbine vibrators
- Eliminated product blockage
- No more loss of man hours
- Reduced noise level around the chute
Alternatively, Model MLT or MLTSS silent pneumatic turbine vibrators or Model 2P-450 heavy duty electric vibrators can be used for similar applications.
