Case Study: Sticky Situation Resolved With A MARTIN® NTS™ Non-Impacting Vibrator

Problem

A Michigan packaging company was having problems getting wood chips to discharge from storage bins.

Situation

Customer was having problems getting wood chips to discharge from a storage container into a screw conveyor. Due to excess moisture and extremely cold temperatures during the winter, the wood chips were bridging. They were using two men with sledge hammers to regain flow.

Solution

MARTIN® Vibration Systems mounted two MARTIN® NTS™ 50/04 and two MARTIN® NTS™ 50/02 Non-Impacting Vibrators in different locations. The low air consumption, non-impacting, and quiet features of these vibrators were benefits the customer really liked.
