What You Need To Know Before Buying Mechanical Flow Aids (Vibrators) For Your Storage Bin

by Benjamin Rice

If you have a storage bin, you may find it necessary to invest in material flow aids to facilitate the easy flow of your stored material. Material flow aids are available in different types such as pneumatic and mechanical material flow aids. If you have decided to choose mechanical flow aids for your bin, especially a bin vibrator, you need to know a few things to help you find the best for your storage bin. For this reason, here are key things you should have in mind when looking for a storage bin vibrator.

What Is the Size and Shape of Your Storage Bin?

The size and shape of your storage bin will help you know the number of vibrators that you will need for your application. Typical bin vibrators have a certain radius of influence, which affects the amount of material they can handle. The rule of the thumb is that the larger your storage bin is, the more vibrators you will need to move the materials effectively. The size of your storage bin will also affect the strength of the vibrator that you should use on the bin. Storage bins with thick walls will need strong vibrators.

What Is Your Application Type?

Vibrators will vary depending on the type of application. Your application type will help you find out whether you have to vibrate a given area on your storage bin or vibrate the whole bin. This is important because you will then know the intensity of vibration that's required. Therefore, for vibration of the entire bin, you will require a vibrator with a higher vibration intensity. In such a case, go for impacting vibrators. These types of vibrators tend to have a higher vibrating intensity than their non-impacting counterparts. Non-impacting vibrators, such as air cushioned and rotary electric vibrators are therefore ideal for vibrating only parts of your storage bin.

What Is The Mode Of Vibration Of The Vibrator?

Before you buy a vibrator for your storage bin, ask for its mode of vibration. The vibration mode usually has an effect on the efficiency and effectiveness of the vibrator. Therefore, choose a vibrator that produces short burst vibrations when in use. This is more effective than one with a continuous mode of vibration.

With the above three things in mind, you can be sure to get the best vibrator for your storage bin. Other things you should have in mind include power source requirements and noise concerns among others. For more information, contact companies like VSS - Vibration Systems & Solutions (Australia).
