We have a small stainless-steel hopper with coconut chunks or coconut jelly that needs to be filled into the gates of a granular filling machine below the hopper. After a while, the material starts to bridge and flow is slowed or obstructed. We believe that agitating the flow with a vibrator would help. What do you suggest?
Asked in: Maintain Flow
When products stop flowing through a hopper and production stops, it not only costs the company money, it also costs the company valuable production time. Our NTS™ Series is a Teflon alloyed aluminum non-impacting linear vibrator and is the optimal unit to eliminate the bridging in your hopper. Once we know the dimensions of the sloped section, we can suggest the exact vibrator for your application. Our website has a variety of applications that the NTS™ Series is currently being used in.
