Rail Car VibratorsNAVCO manufactures a complete line of portable pneumatic hopper car vibrators for railcar and other portable industrial applications.
The NAVCO Railside Car Shaker is a permanently mounted vibration system designed to speed the loading and unloading of bulk material from railcars. The high-amplitude / low frequency vibratory energy developed by the drive mechanism has proven most effective in producing positive and complete material movement. Our Railside Car Shaker is very effective in loosening material from the walls of the railcar during unloading and in material densification during loading.
The NAVCO Overhead Car Shaker is designed to facilitate unloading of open top, bottom discharge railcars. It is a heavy-duty unit designed for the most difficult unloading applications. Our Overhead Car Shaker is constructed of stress relieved heavy steel plate and is designed for continuous 24 hour duty. The unit also features a cardan shaft that eliminates the need to replace or adjust belts.
NAVCO offers two different vibrator system solutions for Railcar rotary dumper systems. Both solutions utilize high amplitude, low frequency vibrations that assist in the removal of residual material ordinarily left in railcars while unloading in rotary dumpers. This optimizes freight dollars by reducing carry-back and also reduces labor costs associated with manually cleaning out the railcars.
