A small manual screening operation was giving problems with material flow and blinding of the screen, and the client needed to eliminate the manual process. They had a 20 mesh screen where 20kg of iron powder would flow through, but only when shaken by hand. The customer had a 40 mesh screen that could hold a larger amount of powder but they did not want to do this process by hand.
By fitting a VIBCO BVS-130 silent pneumatic turbine vibrator, available from Vibco Australia , onto the 40 mesh screen, the material now flows freely. Customer adapted a hand trigger to control the vibrator to increase efficiency in flow. With the vibrator they can now process larger amounts of powder finer and in less time, and also increased their production rate.After installing the VIBCO BVS-130 silent pneumatic turbine vibrator, the customer gained control of the process with more product throughput and without the need for hand shaking. Other benefits of the VIBCO BVS-130 pneumatic turbine vibrators are less noise (67bDa), less compressed air than comparable ball units, and the turbine vibrators do not need lubricated air. All Vibco turbine vibrators come with bearings that are pre-lubricated and sealed for life.
