Loosening and Breaking up

BRECON external vibrators are also used for the collapse of bulk material arches in silos or other containers in which the bulk materials (e.g. sand, lime, cement, coal, cereals etc.) are kept before her further processing. The friction between the material particles is reduced by the vibration caused by the external vibrator and the adhesive forces between silo wall and bulk material are overcome. There are two kinds of bulk material arches: Bridge and shaft formation.

At loosening and breaking up, external vibrators with 3000 vibrations/min for fine-grained bulk materials and with 1500 vibrations/min for coarse-grained bulk materials are used. To avoid breaks at the silo walls and other damages at the silos, the centrifugal force and the on-time should be kept as low as possible.
