A VIBCO DC-3500 Big Bertha™ 12V DC Dump Body Vibrator was installed and virtually eliminated all tailgate slamming. Body hoists no longer needed to be "stretched beyond their stage stop limits" reducing wear and tear, and reducing the risk of roll-over. An added benefit of the Big Bertha™ vibrator is that spreading can be done while dumping, reducing truck time and man-hours, and increasing the number of loads dumped in any given day.
VIBCO’s DC-1600 12V Battery Operated Vibrator was installed on the screen structure. Now, when a load of sand is dumped onto the screen, the vibrating action of the VIBCO Vibrator easily moves the pile through the screen. Also, large pieces of sand are broken down and allowed to flow through.
VIBCO’s Model DC-450T 12 Volt Battery Operated Vibrator was mounted at the base of the delivery hopper to keep material flowing and prevent build-up. The remote control switch allows the vibrator to be activated on demand. The customer has realized much greater batch accuracy and productivity while reducing lost man-hours.
Four VIBCO 55-3S Pneumatic Piston Vibrators were installed; two on each side of the silo. The placement of the vibrators provides the correct amount of vibration to keep the cement flowing evenly from the silo to the agitank, producing consistent batches.
A VIBCO 2P-800 Heavy Duty Electric Vibrator was installed at the top of the hopper allowing the sand to fall though the mesh screen. No more cleaning off of the screen and therefore no interruptions in production.
VIBCO 2P-450 Heavy Duty Electric Vibrators were mounted to the sand bins so that trapped steam and condensation are released from the sand and material flows without clogging or briding in the bin.
A VIBCO 2P-100 Heavy Duty Electric Vibrator was installed on the sloped portion of the hopper. It was wired so that it would start as soon as the gate opened, clearing a full load every time. Now, the cement flows freely and there is no more damage to the hopper from hammering.
