GETTING the maximum net weight into a container or bulk bag is easily achieved when a Vibrating Compaction Table is employed, according to Enmin Vibratory Equipment.
The company offers a range of custom and standard designs to consolidate bulk materials.
During the filling process, unless de-aeration is generated, the container will be shipped with less than the maximum achievable weight, the company says.
Considering a shipping sea container or a road truck, this can reportedly add to the overall cost of transportation since a lesser load is dispatched since all the potential space is not utilised.
Enmin Vibratory Compaction Tables are usually installed at the point where the container or flexible bulk bag is being filled. By interlocking the electrics as the filling takes place, the load will be subjected to a timed and controlled vibration frequency that will quickly consolidate the material. On reaching the net weight, the system simply switches off until the next cycle.
The Vibratory Compaction Table can be supplied with a standard platform low profile scale as a standalone unit or engineered to suit any filling operation such as an automatic conveying process.
Construction of the Vibratory Tables can be in carbon steel painted or hot dipped galvanised or in some cases in a stainless steel design for food or environmental considerations.
