Our coffee powder is getting stuck (ratholing) during the bag-filling process. Please help us find a good solution.
Asked in: Maintain Flow
Material ratholing in hoppers is one of the main reasons the industrial vibrator was designed. Our NTS line of linear non-impacting pneumatic vibrators are the perfect solution for applications that need help mitigating product flow issues. Mounting one of these units one-third up the sloped section of your hopper will reduce or eliminate the issues you are having. Examples of past applications that are using one of our NTS vibrators can be seen here.
