88547.tifVibrators and Drives
Booth 2711 - This full line of BEST heavy-duty air-powered-piston and rotary-electric vibrators and drives is designed for bins, hoppers, chutes, screeners, vibratory feeders, conveyors, tables, and other vibratory applications. All provide continuous maximum-force operation—from 30 lb to more than 40,000 lb. Dust-tight, splashproof motors provide excellent field performance in harsh environments including dirt, rain, and snow. Heavy-duty construction—including ductile-iron castings, steel end covers, and high-alloy fasteners—ensures long life. Motors are available in 3600-, 1200-, and 900-rpm models, from 1/50 to 17½ hp. All units can be mounted horizontally or vertically.  Metso, Brunswick, OH 800-827-9237 www.bestvibes.com

88548.tifIndustrial Vibrators
Booth 1629 & 2015 - The Hi-Vi magnetic drive circuit provides a powerful solution to difficult material flow applications. The vibrators can be used for the tiniest hopper or for huge bunkers with reinforced heavy-steel plate and liners. Concentrated vibration applies a superior action to bin walls, resulting in a more economical and efficient flow of materials. Bin vibrators feature totally enclosed patented magnetic drives, provide trouble-free operation, and can cycle up to 30 times per minute. The elliptical action of the ERV models help settle material in bags, boxes, or other materials for shipping or storage. Eriez, Erie, PA 888-300-3743 www.eriez.com

88549.tifLinear Vibrator
Booth 1012 - The VMAX linear vibrator operates with low noise levels and high force outputs and accommodates demanding applications. Features include special end mounts, dual ports, and a totally enclosed housing. With a state-of-the-art piston design, the unit does not require a spring to start and is centrifugally balanced, which prolongs the life and increases the force output over conventional models. It comes in a variety of sizes to suit almost every application, big and small, including vibratory conveying, vibratory compacting, and discharging of either dry or wet difficult-to-handle bulk solids from bins and hoppers. Posi-flate, St. Paul, MN 651-484-5800 www.posiflate.com

88571.tifSilent Turbine Vibrator
Booth 1355 & 2425 - The BVS-320 silent turbine vibrator saves air, is efficient, does not require lubrication, and provides virtually silent operation. A turbine vibrator will typically outlast a ball vibrator 3 to 1. With foolproof operation and low noise, the unit is ideal for a range of applications, including parts feeding, batchers, hoppers, chutes, packaging, foundry match-plates, shake-outs and sand hoppers, screens, and wherever parts or material hangs.  Vibco Vibrators, Wyoming, RI  401-539-2392 www.vibco.com
