Case Study: Material Flow Solutions – Feeding Chute


A customer who manufactures ice cream was having difficulties keeping sugar flowing down a feeding chute. The product would bridge and cling to the sides of the chute, creating inconsistency in the product blend.


The first unit installed on the chute was our P-1.25 Piston Vibrator. However, because of noise and air consumption, the MARTIN® NTK® Oscillator (NTK-1 Aluminum) was used in its place. All flow problems have been eliminated with this application.
