Vibration Systems & Solutions vibrating conveyors
Other than the simple drive pneumatic vibrator, vibrating conveyors from Vibration Systems & Solutions have no moving parts. They use a stainless steel tray made from a single folded piece of steel which, depending on length, has no welds or joins to harbour pathogens. This also gives a simpler washdown with no corners or crevices to worry about, with the added advantage that excess water can be vibrated away down the tray.
The tray is mounted on blade springs with a single compact pneumatic vibrator providing the driving force. The blade springs operate in ‘resonance frequency’ which means that very little energy is needed to keep the tray moving. The vibrator is the only moving part in the system.
The conventional thinking is that conveyors are made of belts, whether plastic or metal, with the associated motors and gearboxes. There are also link pins and other possible trap points for contaminants.
These conveyors can be made up to 8 m long and offer transport speeds of up to 40 m/min, which can be easily adjusted while the conveyor is operating. There are no rollers or other moving parts except the vibrator itself, which means that maintenance is kept to a minimum, with just a clean, dry, lubricated air supply needed.
For critical applications, vibrator models requiring no lubrication can be supplied.
They are suitable for discrete products such as lollies and biscuits, or bulk materials like sugar or grain. The gentle movement keeps delicate products whole with minimal degradation. Shorter models can be made as rate-controlled feeders.
