MARTIN® VAC-MOUNT™ Portable Vibrators

Instant vibration! No welding! No downtime!

MARTIN® VAC-MOUNT™ Portable Vibrators are the answer for applications where ease of installation and/or maximum portability is required. The mounts are held in place by vacuum generated by a venturi system. Just place the unit against the vessel, turn the suction valve handle and you are ready to vibrate. This is the ideal solution for intermittent flow problems or for cleaning between batches. MARTIN®VAC-MOUNT™ Vibrators are the perfect tools for troubleshooting material-flow problems.

MARTIN® VAC-MOUNT™ Portable Vibrators are available in a variety of sizes including impacting, non-impacting and high-frequency models.

Case Studies

  • Case Study: Broken Glass Buildup – VAC-MOUNT™ Vibrator

    Problem

    A large plate glass manufacturer in Toronto was dealing with two problems: broken glass in a scrap reclaim bin not vacating, and compensation claims for back injuries resulting from the periodic cleaning of this bin.

    Situation

    Except for scheduled maintenance or breakdown, the line is never shut down. Thus, when the glass is not being cut and stacked, the material is “thrashed” and recycled. It was at this station the problem existed. The bin, approximately 8’ wide by 30’ long, had less than a 2-1/2′ drop (roughly 5°). The operators were using long poles to push the glass shards to the discharge, which periodically resulted in a back injury claim.

    Solution

    Demonstration was key in showing the customer the solution to their problem. Even though there was noise from the thrasher, the customer may now vibrate and clean this bin during cutting and stacking without excessive noise from piston type vibrators.
