One third the air consumption of ball vibrators!
MARTIN® NCT™ Turbine Vibrators provide powerful, efficient, rotary vibratory force for activating solids in bins, hoppers, chutes, screens and feeders. These quiet vibrators are especially suited for fine, dry materials that respond to high-frequency. Parts handling, circuit board manufacturing and bottling plant applications are ideal for the MARTIN® NCT™ Series.
Sanitary coating & lubrication-free operation – perfect for food and pharmaceutical applications.
MARTIN® NCT™ Turbine Vibrators are sealed with o-rings. This sealing system keeps liquids out, even in the harshest of environments.
On the right, a MARTIN® NCT™ Vibrator is shaking racks in a plating operation at a printed circuit board factory. Even when in constant contact with harsh chemicals, the MARTIN® NCT™ Turbines keep running.
No Lubrication Required
MARTIN® NCT™ Turbine Vibrators are lubrication-free, eliminating the use of messy, maintenance intensive lubricators. No oil mist is discharged into the atmosphere.
Noise levels are 60 – 75 dBA, well below regulatory limits.
MARTIN® NCT™ Turbine Vibrators use less than 1/3 the compressed air of ball-type units.

NCT™ Turbine Vibrator Spec Sheet
Best uses and case studies for MARTIN® NCT™ Rotary Turbine Vibrators
Emptying Big Bags Completely and ATEX Safely
A chemical industry customer frequently emptied large bags up to 1,000 liters/2,000 kg. of the product into a container, but was unable to empty the bag thoroughly. This required workers to manipulate the bag manually to make sure all of the product had been emptied. Their objective was to provide a way to automate the process so that the bags would empty thoroughly without requiring manual labor. Also, the environment is classified ATEX zone 22 because of the potential for dust so it was required that the system not produce any sparks or discharge static electricity.
The customer installed a MARTIN® NCT™ Rotary Turbine Vibrator to a base assembly, allowing the contents of the bags to be thoroughly emptied. Also, the equipment was made according to ATEX Zone 22, eliminating the possibility of sparks or static discharge.
Separating Boxes During the Production Process
A customer who designs facilities for packaging industry had, as part of their new manufacturing line, a process wherein flat, unfolded boxes moving along a chute were picked up and moved by a robotic arm to the next step of the process. However, because the boxes would often stick together and become unlevel, the positioning of the box was not consistent and the robotic arm would frequently miss the top one.
The customer purchased and installed a MARTIN® NCT™ Pneumatic Turbine Vibrator under the chute. By vibrating the chute, they were able to reduce the friction between the boxes and level them into a consistent position. This allowed them to be more easily picked up by the robotic arm.
Eliminating Build-Up At A Crushed Stone Quarry
A crushed-stone quarry in Tennessee was experiencing problems with material build-up in the feeder hopper under their sizing screens.
The material (size 1/4″ down to fines) would cling to the hopper walls and build up, eventually stopping material flow and shutting down the screening operation.
A MARTIN® NCT™ Turbine Vibrator (NCT-108) was mounted on a channel on the end wall of the hopper. The vibrator was mounted on a 5″ x 48″ long channel and located 18″ from the bottom of the bin. After two weeks of operation, the customer reports no bin or feeder stoppages at this point. They are very pleased and we are now trying to help them solve other problems at their plant.
