An air-powered vibrator is helping bulk carriers empty their hopper trailer loads faster and more safely by agitating settled materials and energizing flow, while discouraging common but potentially dangerous manual tactics. The new design features a quick-attach vacuum mounting base to locate the unit precisely where it’s needed on a given truck or load, rather than being restricted to a permanently-mounted bracket. Unlike traditional truck vibrators, the MT-FASTTM hopper trailer vibrator needs no mounting bracket, so it can be positioned at corners, valleys, or other problem areas where material flow tends to stall. Because it’s affixed directly to the hopper wall, energy is transferred more efficiently than with a bracket-mounted vibrator. By expediting material flow, the units reduce unloading times and the risk of personal injury or truck damage that can result from using a pry bar or hammering on hopper walls.
