Flow-Easy vibrators are designed to speed up the unloading of bulk material, providing efficient, safe and controlled load unloading and relieving the need for operators to manually attempt to release material.
Vibrators provide numerous productivity and safety gains that improve driver and truck safety, reduce fuel and maintenance costs, and reduce wear and tear on the truck and trailer.
For operators transporting bulk products such as fertilizer, manure, feed, grain and sand, materials that catch on inside a dump body and slow down the unloading process are a problem. common problem.
In many cases, the only way to move the load is to “move” the vehicle or manually extract the compact product at the end of a shift – both risky and long.
One of the biggest safety concerns for dump truck operators is the risk of the truck tipping over – and materials adhering to the dump bed bed increase that risk. According to a safety alert issued by VicRoads, the center of gravity of the trailer shifts upward when the bed is raised. Thus, if part of the cargo is compacted in the dump body, the risk of the trailer overturning increases. “All it takes are uneven ground conditions to tilt the trailer sideways and enough overturning moment can be produced to roll the trailer,” Vic Roads warns.
Ride a Flow-Easy vibrator minimizes this risk of tipping. Typically, a lower elevation can be achieved to distribute the load, while vibration breaks down the compaction of the material, effectively removing compact residual buildup – a costly and common problem.
In addition to being a simple and economical alternative to body coatings, a vibrator significantly reduces the risk of cross contamination, especially where grains and fertilizers are transported. Over time, body liners expand and overlap, creating pockets where fugitive material can get stuck, increasing the potential for material contamination.
Flow-Easy vibrators are distributed by Melbourne-based Enmin, an Australian market leader in handling systems and vibratory equipment. The vibrators were previously marketed under the Enmin brand but have recently been renamed Flow-Easy.
“Our sales of industrial vibrators have grown significantly over the past few years, becoming a key product in the Enmin range. Giving vibrators their own brand names made sense from both a business and customer perspective, ”said Anthony Gallaher, CEO of Enmin.
“The name Flow-Easy clearly and immediately communicates what the product does – loosen compacted bulk material and speed up the unloading process,” he adds.
The Flow-Easy range includes 12 and 24 volt electric vibrators as well as hydraulic and pneumatic options. Some transportation applications require the application of vibration for an extended period of time, a scenario where the design features of hydraulic and pneumatic models come into their own. If required, they can run continuously, rather than the more generally used intermittent operation of electric models.
“Truck vibrators are easy to install and require minimal modification to the trailer body, making them a simple, inexpensive addition that offers a number of advantages. As companies update their fleet of trucks and trailers, vibrators can be easily and quickly removed from existing trailers and installed on new units, ”explains Gallaher.
“Quite simply, if you are involved in transporting bulk materials, a Flow-Easy vibrator will allow you to spend less time unloading and more time saving money while minimizing WHS risks.
In addition to vibrators for trucks, Enmin also offers a wide range of industrial vibrators suitable for any industry that handles bulk materials. The range is specially designed to suit the Australian environment and covers a multitude of industries such as agriculture, mining, quarrying, recycling, ports and terminals.
