Vibrating equipment has a long successful record in tough applications within the foundry, steel, coal, mining, and scrap industries where its ability to provide reliable, low-maintenance performance is highly regarded. The advantage in using vibratory units is that the material is “live” and moves independently of the conveying medium whereas on other types of conveyors, the material is static and the conveying medium moves. This important characteristic provides a solution to many difficult material handling and processing applications facing us today.

The proper combination of amplitude, the total movement of the material carrying deck, and frequency, the number of cycles of motion for a given time period, together with the angle in which the resulting force is applied, can provide an aggressive tossing action all the way down to a gentle sliding-type movement depending upon the motion needed to meet processing requirements. Abrasive wear is minimized since the vertical accelerating force applied to the material reduces its effective pressure on the trough surface.

The ability to perform multiple supplemental functions such as screening or classifying, aligning, and turning material while conveying, along with provisions to discharge material at intermediate positions, provides a compact, economical solution to a variety of processing demands.
