VBB, VBC, & VBD
 
Model VBB is a small, high-speed vibrator that is applicable wherever a low-cost vibrator is needed to free materials that hang up. The VBB is available in a range of sizes that can be used on delicate laboratory equipment, as well as on small bins and hoppers. Just one bolt is needed to mount the VBB at a right angle or parallel to the surface to which it is attached.

Model VBC is designed to mount at a right angle or parallel to the surface to which it is attached. A powerful vibrator for its size, the VBC moves stubborn materials from medium-size (approximately 1/2 ton) hoppers and bins. It is also suitable for use on small test tables and plastic or concrete forms.
 
Model VBD is available in two sizes. Both are heavy-duty vibrators that may be used on large bins and hoppers of rugged construction. VBD models feature a four-bolt flange mounting base. They mount quickly and easily with equipment that is available in kit form.

VBM, VBM-P & 110 Drum Vibrator
 
 
VBM ball vibrators incorporate the economy and efficiency of the Econ-O-Line ball vibrator series, with the quietness of an exhaust muffler. The standard muffler includes a built-in air regulator to control vibration intensity and frequency. The dimensional and technical data for the VBM data are the same as comparable Econ-O-Line models, but the noise level is much lower. VBM-P models are nylon-coated ball vibrators with enclosed exhaust. The heavy-duty nylon coating encapsulates the entire vibrator. The VBM-P is ideal for applications that require a sanitary, corrosion-resistant vibrator. We also offer additional coatings for harsh environments, including nickel, nitrofusion, ceramic, super blue and black coatings. An exhaust muffler with built-in regulator is standard on the VBM-P. Dimensional and technical data for the VBM-P models are the same as comparable Econ-O-Line models, with the exception of noise levels.
 
Installation of Econ-O-Line
 
 
Hang and Hold Drum Vibrator Assembly Model 110 Drum Assembly allows quick attachment and removal of its powerful VBC-110 ball vibrator on fiber or steel drums. This model is ideal for settling materials to provide accurate shipping weights and/or to increase capacity. It fits containers up to 30" (76 cm) in diameter and develops sufficient vibratory force to agitate loads of up to 300 lb. (136 kg).
 
A strong web belt and ratchet insure a secure attachment for maximum transfer of vibration. An adjustable support hook allows the operator to work the ratchet without having to support the vibrator. The kit includes a ball vibrator (frequency 3600 to 7500 VPM), special mounting plate, adjustable web belt with ratchet type buckle, adjustable hook, 5' (152 cm) neoprene hose with fittings, QN quick acting valve, air-pressure regulator and filter assembly. The approximate weight is 15 lb. (6.8 kg).
 
Larger size Vibra-Balls are also available. Contact us for further details.
