It can be tricky to keep sand moving, particularly when it gets a little damp. Vibco Australia recently supplied two VS-320 silent pneumatic turbine vibrators on sand bins as a replacement for an inefficient ball vibrator.
Following installation of these pneumatic turbine vibrators the sand flowed freely on demand and the production rate increased considerably. Also, as there is no more bin banging, man hours have been reduced and the noise level has abated. The noise level was reduced to below OSHA standards.
The customer also benefited from easy cross over with Vibco’s direct bolt replacement and free adapter plates and a longer turbine vibrator life that requires 45% less air consumption than ball vibrators and no lubrication required.
