u1053_140811.jpgElectric Rotary Vibrators
State-of-the-art, rugged electric rotary vibrators (ERVs) are powerful units that provide an effective flow-aid for hoppers and chutes or a driving force for vibratory screeners, feeders, and conveyors. Standard ERV models are constructed for wet or dusty environments, thus eliminating concerns of environmental conditions. Offered in a broad variety of models, ERVs are available to suit nearly any application requirements. The elliptical action of the ERV helps settle materials in bags, boxes, or other materials for shipping or storage. Other features include durable powder coat finish, tropicalized windings, continuous operation at 100 percent force output, high quality bearings, and more.

u1076_140812.jpgVibrators and Drives for Hoppers
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 to more than 40,000 lb. These dust-tight, splash-proof 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, assures long life. BEST motors are available in 3600-, 1200-, and 900-RPM models, from 1/50 to 17½ hp. All units can be mounted horizontally or vertically.

u105a_140813.jpgTruck Vibrators Cougar truck vibrators help drivers ensure complete emptying of bulk materials, reducing the need for personnel to enter dump beds for manual cleanout. By eliminating carryback and giving drivers more payload per cycle and fewer cycles per job, productivity is increased while fuel costs, labor expenses, and vehicle wear are reduced. The DC-3200 truck vibrator is a powerful, heavy-duty design intended for dump trucks with a capacity of 10-15 yards, live-bottom tandem dump trucks that carry 15-30 yards, as well as large spreaders and vacuum trucks. The unit delivers 4000 vibration cycles per minute (VPM) with 3200 pounds of force, while drawing just 85 amps from the 12V model and 62 amps from the 24V version.

u107e_140814.jpgExternal Electric Vibrators
The MVE series of external electric motovibrators are used in a number of applications, as material flow aids, for screening, conveying, cleaning, detaching, compacting, and sorting. The durable vibrators are used in applications in the food and pharmaceutical industries, as well as other industrial, mining, and engineering sectors. All MVE models from size 20 to 90, and the bigger ones (100, 105, and 110) have been granted certification in compliance with ATEX by the International Electrotechnical Commission for Explosive Atmospheres.

u106d_140818.jpgLinear Vibrator
The VMAX linear vibrator operates with low noise levels and high force outputs and accommodates the most demanding of applications. Special end mounts, dual ports, and a totally enclosed housing make it unique. With a state-of-the-art piston design, the VMAX linear vibrator does not require a spring to start and is centrifugally balanced, which prolongs the life and increases the force output over conventional models. The VMAX vibrator 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. It can also be used to compact materials when filling containers to achieve maximum space utilization and save shipping costs. Posi-flate, St. Paul, MN 651-484-5800 www.posiflate.com
