A customer in the chemical manufacturing industry working with a highly viscous fluid was experiencing difficulty in emptying the fluid from a barrel. Because the opening through which the fluid was draining was very small, emptying the barrel was a time-consuming process.
The customer purchased and installed a MARTIN® NTS™ 180 NF Linear Vibrator. The vibration applied to the barrel improved the flow of the fluid through the opening, reducing the amount of time it took to completely discharge the contents of the barrel. This resulted in a substantial increase in production capacity.
