The use of rotary electric and linear electromagnetic vibrators to solve bin/hopper and chute flow issues, coupled with their use in conveying, screening, and sizing equipment provides many advantages to modern industry. Reliable and economical electric power is available or easily accessible at almost every plant and in most plant’s remote locations. It is an efficient and readily accessible method to transmit energy to a range of electric motors including electric vibrators. Advantages of using these vibrators include, but are not limited to: Power to Weight Ratio –  electric vibrators efficiently convert electrical energy into rotational torque which yields up to 67100 lbs of centrifugal force output coupled with consistent and repeatable number of vibrations per minute from a lightweight, tough, engineered housing. Long Life – both rotary and electromagnetic electric vibrators when maintained properly can provide a 20-year service life. Repeatability – electric vibrators can be designed into equipment where the consistent operation is essential to enable the cost-effective production of materials that require specified size and mixture characteristics. For 80 years, we’ve helped users in a wide range of industries take advantage of these benefits in a variety of controlled, repeatable vibration applications. AIRMATIC provides the largest selection of robust, cost-effective rotary electric and linear electromagnetic vibrators from the world’s leading manufacturers. Give us an opportunity to solve your bulk solids flow problem and we’ll handle it.

Types of Electric Vibrators

Rotary Electric Vibrators - AC & DC

Electric Rotary Vibrators are ideal where the flow problem is primarily caused by a material’s particle to particle interaction forces and the material to bin wall friction of dry (≤ 5% moisture) bulk solids – the primary causes of a bulk solid’s tendency to bridge, arch, build-up or rat-hole. These relatively dry materials respond best to rotary vibration which produces an omni-directional centrifugal force that can be applied over a proportionately large surface area to transmit energy waves through a bin/chute’s steel wall directly into the material to promote flow.

Linear Electromagnetic Vibrators - AC

Linear electromagnetic vibrators are used in a range of industries as discharge flow aids on bins, hoppers, and chutes. They are also utilized as drives on vibratory feeders, screeners, conveyors, tables, and bowl feeders. An electromagnetic design has the advantage of no rotating or sliding wear components, which in turn means they are virtually maintenance-free.
