Pneumatic Piston Vibrators
Piston Vibrators are widely used to facilitate trouble-free material flow from storage bins and hoppers.
NAVCO Piston Vibrators are sized for the application and their area of influence is determined. The vibrators are located on the bin or hopper so that the areas of influence overlap; vibrators are operated in a sequence that provides optimal flow pattern and minimal utility consumption. When it comes to industrial vibrators for Bins and Hoppers, Pneumatic Piston Vibrators are the best solutions.
Why use a Pneumatic Piston Vibrator:
1. Linear Vibration - The forces generated by a pneumatic piston vibrator are linear hence they are directed and concentrated in the problem area. In addition, no damaging shear forces are applied to the mounting bracket or storage vessel. High Amplitude,
2. Low Frequency - The high-energy impulse vibration generated by a pneumatic piston vibrator is effective in reducing the strength of bulk materials and the sliding friction between the material and the bin wall. This is accomplished without approaching potentially damaging resonant frequencies.
3. Low Cost - Pneumatic Piston Vibrators can solve virtually any bulk material flow problem at a fraction of the cost of equally or less effective alternative solutions. Low Maintenance - When installed and operated properly, pneumatic Piston Vibrators provide years of effective performance.
Pneumatic (Air) Piston Vibrators by NAVCO® Products effectively promote material flow by eliminating the formation of bridges and rat holes in storage containers Also called pneumatic Piston Vibrators, there are models and options to fit containers of all shapes and sizes including: Bins, hoppers, and silos and also pipes. Ideal for both flat walled hoppers and conical hopper, the NAVCO® Products BH Air vibrators supplied by KJN are low maintenance and economical to operate compared to other types of shaker devices. NAVCO® pneumatic Piston Vibrators are sized for the application and their area of influence is determined.
High amplitude characteristics of the BH industrial bin vibrators enable the vibrating energy to be transmitted in the capacity required to overcome the strength of the bulk material involved in a bridge (arch) or a rathole (pipe) inside of a bin or hopper. Other advantages of high amplitude, linear vibrators include low utility consumption and minimum bin wall stress.
NAVCO® manufactures a complete line of portable pneumatic hopper car vibrators for railcar and other portable industrial applications. The NAVCO® HCP model vibrator is designed to provide reliable and effective performance in difficult applications and severe environments. The HCP's special features make it ideal for solving Heavy-Duty railcar unloading problems.
NAVCO´s MP series vibrators are machined using ductile iron castings which enables the units to withstand high temperatures and prolonged usage. Our matchplate vibrators have a low initial cost and operate at a low air consumption level, which continues to save money through the long life of the vibrator.
The NAVCO® Magnetic mount and clamp on vibrators distributed by KJN are ideal for use where light duty vibration is needed in multiple locations. The MV vibrator has a magnetic mounting head as well as a ferrous mounting sticker pad so it can even mount on non-ferrous hoppers . The FV vibrator has a screw-clamping mount. The ST is a stud mount and the MP is a pin mount. Each model has several sizes available except the Magnevibe (one size only).
