Case Study: Peanut Packing Requires Minimal Damage Vibration

Problem

A manufacturer of stainless food handling equipment was having a problem with product damage in the handling of Spanish-style peanuts.

Situation

The stainless storage bin metered on to a belt at various rates depending on package size. They would hammer this bin with a rubber mallet to induce heavier flow for larger packaging.

Solution

The addition of a MARTIN® CD™ Series 18-470 Vibrator (set to the lowest setting) moves the product smoothly with minimal damage. The manufacturer has since standardized on our products.
