We’re trying to remove air bubbles from very high viscosity silicone in dispensing tubes.

Asked in:

High viscosity materials are one of the harder materials to settle due to their nature of resisting flow and can respond to either extreme high acceleration or high frequency depending on the viscosity. This application would be one that testing… Learn More


I am looking for a solution that will help fill pails of a high viscosity material. I need the surface of the material to be completely level. I was thinking that a vibratory table or some type of shaker might help.

We have a gluten free bakery. Before baking, we have to level the batter and remove any air bubbles. I believe that some form of variable vibration equipment could solve our issues. Do you have something that might fit the bill?

Asked in:

This bakery application is a common application for us.  We normally use a high frequency pneumatic vibrator such as the NCT™ Series to power the vibratory table.  You’ll find that a vibratory table is the perfect solution for settling your… Learn More


I need a solution for shaking small parts in a box in order to close the top of the box without crushing them. The box weighs around 100 pounds.

Asked in:

Settling parts and removing air pockets is best done by a machine than line personnel. This is where a vibratory compaction table that is integrated into your manufacturing line comes into play. Given the weight of the box I would use… Learn More


I am looking for a small vibration table to set a quart-sized can in. I want to densify powdered metal so I can fill the can completely. Right now, our technicians have to shake and bang the cans, which is hard on the employee and the can. The table also needs to be explosion-proof. Can you help?

Asked in:

Explosion proof applications are a perfect fit for a pneumatic vibrator due to sparks not being generated during operation.  Our NTS™ Series is a Teflon alloyed aluminum non-impacting linear vibrator that can be ordered with an ATEX rating.  Unfortunately, there… Learn More
