VMS & VMR - Metallic Impact Vibrator
For Hoppers, Bins, Chutes and Pipes
 
Installation and Operating Kits
 
The VMS piston impacts directly against a channel mounting plate. The VMR piston impacts against part of the vibrator's base. A single exhaust port with port protector prevents the entrance of dirt into the vibrator's exhaust cavity, prolonging the life of the vibrator, and the double-diameter piston guarantees starting at any mounting angle with minimum air pressure and without the use of a piston return spring. Like VMSAC, VMS has a one-piece, rugged ductile iron cylinder housing which decreases the weight of the vibrator. The body is cast with a provision for attachment of a safety cable. Also, VMS is easily installed. It may be mounted on any appropriately sized mounting channel, and it comes complete with heavy-duty mounting fasteners and a gasket.

The information contained in the chart below is the result of many years of experience. It is a reasonably accurate approach to giving you quick information regarding vibrator sizing on a hopper, bin, or chute.
