Vibration moves the conveyed material in the desired direction
When conveying bulk goods, conveyor troughs are set in motion by BRECON external vibrators mounted in counter rotating pairs. The vibrators generate linear oscillation which continously jog the conveyed material at an angle of approximately 30° in such a way that a chain of micro projectile movement is produced: The bulk material “flows”. Since it is aimed to achieve large oscillations, these applications use vibrators with 1500 or 1000 vibrations per minute .
All vibrators are available for 50Hz and 60Hz main frequency, special voltages (e.g. 500V) are available on request. We would be pleased to help you selecting the correct vibrator for your application.

Conveying and sieving
The functionality and choice of the external vibrators at the conveying and sieving is identical and therefore is looked at together also (The external vibrator is only used differently at sieving). At conveying and sieving the working conditions are rough, large material quantities have to be processed and little room is available for the vibration drive.
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.
