Material handling has many challenges. One of the more frustrating problems is a blockage when material stops flowing through the containers, belts, or shoots. With industrial vibrators, you reduce the chances of blockage by continually shaking material to alter the flow enough to minimize blockages and reduce material build up if they do happen.
Broad Industrial Applications
Keeping material flowing is key to operational efficiency in many industries. Manufacturing, shipping, agriculture, mills, and more rely on industrial vibrators to keep their lines rolling. Proper use of the technology improves safety (workers enter equipment less often to “unclog” material), improves efficiency (less downtime) and therefore increased profits. Kor-Pak works closely with our customers to ensure they purchase, place, and calibrate the industrial vibrator that is best suited for their application.
Industrial vibrators for Material Mixing
Industrial vibration equipment has application all along the process for material mixing, conveying and discharge. With a heavy focus on building materials, but applications in others industries as well, manufacturers produce a broad range of vibrator equipment: External vibrators, aerators, pneumatic hammer vibrators, internal vibrators, and associated equipment.
Rotary electric vibrating motors for Trucks & Trailers
For smaller mobile applications, such as trucks and trailers up to 1 cubic yard up to 800 pounds, smaller DC motor vibrators are the equipment of choice. The industrial vibrators tend to be very rugged, operating in temperatures from -20 degrees f to 70 degrees f for continuous operation. Typically this equipment will run off a 12-volt power supply, have at least a 7’ lead cord and come with mounting brackets.
For 2-12cubic yard capacity, a mid-size rotor electric vibrator that draws 12 – 25 amps on 12 volts (can go up to 24 volts), is recommended. These can usually handle up to 5,000 15,000 pounds, with continuous operation up to 110 degrees f.
For large loads of over 12 cubic yards and weights up to 35,000 lbs, units that run at around 4,000 RPMs, and draw 60 amps on 12 volts are likely needed. These vibration motors tend NOT to be for a continuous operation. Cycle time varies, but expect them to be 10 -15 minutes on with up to 60 minutes off. Total load and ambient temperatures are factors in the operating parameters.
