Case Study: Perfect Blending With A MARTIN® NTK® Oscillator


An Illinois ice cream manufacturer 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.


Their existing chute did not blend product consistently and would cling to its side. This created a problem with their product blending and the cleaning and maintenance of the chute was costly.


MARTIN® Vibration Systems originally installed a MARTIN® NTK® Oscillator (P-1.25 Piston Vibrator) on the chute. However, because of noise and air consumption, it was then replaced with an NTK-1 Aluminum Oscillator. All flow problems have been eliminated with this application.
