In most industrial environments, mechanical equipment may pose a danger to workers exposed to moving parts, loud sustained noise, and other potential hazards. For plant managers, compliance with standards established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is a key part of their responsibilities.
In some cases, installing an industrial vibrator can prevent or at least minimize these hazards. For example, OSHA has established acceptable limits in terms of duration and decibels for the noise levels workers may be exposed to.
Our vibration equipment has been engineered to run quietly. Plus, in many applications, they can be set to a pulse pattern that runs for a set time per minute instead of running constantly. The result is a quieter operation with a lower duty cycle and a lower noise-level hazard.
Additionally, vibration can be used in a targeted way to gently unload bulk solids from a hopper, rail car or hopper bottom trailer with no manual loosening required by workers. Vibration can also be used as part of an automation process for portioning or dosing during the packaging process. This reduces the likelihood of injuries that could happen when striking a container with a hammer, as well as a wide range of repetitive motion injuries.
At Martin® Vibration Systems, we have hundreds of products that fulfill a wide range of needs. We’re happy to discuss your operation’s needs and help you determine which product can help you streamline your process, reduce your costs, and stay in compliance with OSHA regulations.
