A lime processing plant in Brazil was having a problem loading lime into tank trucks. The lime was not filling the tank completely and therefore wasting a lot of space.
To fill the trucks, they drove them around the factory three times for material compaction. They realized that this process of stopping to fill the trucks, driving them around and then fill again was not the most efficient method.
To improve the loading process, Martin Do Brazil installed a MARTIN® NTS™ 50/04 Non-Impacting Vibrator with a VAC-MOUNT™ 20 on the trucks.
Now this customer fills the tank trucks in a third of the time it previously took and without the trucks “racing” around. They used to fill each truck with 26 tons of material, and now they fill them with 27 tons of material. Cimento Itau is very impressed with this improvement.
