Flow-Easy vibrators offer multiple benefits

The problem of bulk materials snagged inside a dump body slowing down the unloading process is something common to many operators transporting bulk products like fertilizer, manure, feed, grain and the sand.

In many cases, the only way to move materials is to “maneuver” the vehicle or manually extract the compact product at the end of a shift – both risky and time-consuming.

Flow-Easy vibrators are designed to expedite the unloading of bulk products, providing efficient, safe and controlled load unloading. The vibration loosens the compacted material, effectively removing residual buildup – an expensive and common problem.

Vibrators offer many productivity and safety gains that improve driver and truck safety, reduce fuel and maintenance costs, and reduce truck and trailer wear.

One of the biggest safety concerns for tipper operators is the risk of truck rollover; materials adhering to the tipping pan increase this risk. Installing a Flow-Easy vibrator minimizes this risk of tipping and usually a lower lift can be achieved to distribute the load.

As well as being a simple and economical alternative to body liners, a vibrator greatly reduces the risk of cross contamination, especially when grain and fertilizers are transported.

Over time, body liners expand and overlap, creating pockets where fugitive materials can become trapped, increasing the potential for material contamination.

Flow-Easy vibrators are distributed by Melbourne-based Enmin, an Australian market leader in material handling systems and vibrating 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 the vibrators their own brand name made sense from both a business and customer perspective,” said Enmin chief executive Anthony Gallaher.

“The name Flow-Easy clearly and immediately communicates what the product does: loosen compacted bulk materials and speed up the unloading process,” Gallaher added.

“In parallel with the new brand name, we are launching a vast communication campaign to increase awareness of the many benefits a vibrator offers to tipper and dump truck operators. »

The range includes 12 and 24 volt electric vibrators as well as hydraulic and pneumatic options. Some conveying applications require the application of vibration for an extended duration, a scenario where the design features of hydraulic and pneumatic models come into their own.

If necessary, they can operate 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 benefits. As companies update their fleet of trucks and trailers, vibrators can be easily and quickly removed from existing trailers and installed on new units,” Gallaher said.

“Quite simply, if you’re involved in transporting bulk materials, a Flow-Easy vibrator will allow you to spend less time unloading, more time earning money while minimizing WHS risks.”

In addition to truck vibrators, Enmin also offers a wide range of industrial vibrators suitable for any industry handling bulk materials.

The range is specifically designed to suit the Australian environment and covers a multitude of industries such as agriculture, mining, quarrying, recycling, ports and terminals.
