Industrial Vibrators

Proper lubrication of rotary electric vibrators and vibratory drive motors is critically important to their longevity and performance. Smaller vibrator motors, 50 Frame and under, typically do not require lubrication. Their bearings are sealed and are lubricated for the life of the motor. Larger vibrators, typically 50 Frame and larger, do require regular lubrication maintenance, and it must be with the vibrator manufacturer’s specified brand and type of grease. Here’s what you need to know…

Often, users of rotary electric vibrators will avoid use of overload protection (O/L) either by not equipping their controls with O/Ls, or defeating them if installed – it's a costly bad practice.

After investing in a rotary electric vibrator, you would probably like to get the most value from it that you can. Here’s our recommendation if that’s your goal: Every three months, perform a thorough inspection of the equipment.

There are numerous issues that could cause a rotary electric vibrator to not start properly. These can range from an electrical issue to faulty equipment. If you’re having issues getting your vibrator motor to run, not only is it a maintenance nuisance, but it’s also costing you money because it's stopping production output.

No matter the wire gauge of the power cord/cable you use, length matters. It's a bad idea to ever choose a cord longer than needed. Why? The longer the cord, the higher the voltage drop, and voltage drops are extremely hard on the life of a motor winding. Always select a cord as close as possible to the actual length you require.

The answer to this question depends on the type of the single-phase rotary electric vibrator being used. You cannot change speed on all single-phase vibratory motors. While some single-phase vibrator manufacturers allow the use of a rheostat on their motors, most do not.

Today’s federal, state, and local regulations regarding acceptable noise levels in and around the industrial work environment are stringent. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to implement a hearing conservation program when noise exposure is at or above 85dB averaged over eight working hours. There are several different ways to control worker exposure to excessive noise and thereby prevent hearing loss, including using quieter machines, isolating the noise source, limiting worker exposure, or using effective personal protective equipment (PPE).

There are three (3) critical considerations when choosing the ideal RPM for a Rotary Electric Vibrator to solve your material flow issue.

There are several issues that can cause a vibrator mount beam installation to fail, cause damage to the bin, or not properly transmit vibration. They range from improper welding techniques, to welds that are too large or too small, to failure to follow guidelines for properly placed welds or the lengths of welds.

There are four (4) reasons why three-phase rotary electric vibrators are superior to single-phase units in outdoor applications.
