Foundry Industry Applications

The following are applications in the Foundry Industry where industrial vibrators are used to solve flow problems:

Green Sand Molding Hopper

Air Operated:
Electric Operated:
Comments:
  • Vibrator bolts to a mounting assembly welded to a hopper wall.
  • Vibrator to be interlocked with hopper discharge gate. Vibrator runs when gate opens.
  • Use FloPro© Vibrator Selector Program to size and select vibrator.

Automatic Molding Machines Supply Hoppers

Electric Operated:
Comments:
  • Vibrator bolts to a mounting assembly welded to a hopper wall.

Sand Compaction in Flask on Automatic Molding Machines

Air Operated:
Comments:
  • Vibrator bolts to a mount supplied as part of the flask assembly welded to the hopper wall. Check bolt hole dimensions.

Shell Core Machine Core Release

Air Operated:
Comments:
  • Vibrator bolts to one side of mold and runs during core release.

Return Sand Hopper

Air Operated:
Electric Operated:
Comments:
  • Vibrator bolts to a mounting assembly welded to a hopper wall. Note: wearliners must be plug welded to outer hopper wall in area vibrator to prevent "oil canning" effect of outer wall.
  • Two smaller vibrators on opposite sides work better. Return sand ratholes and clings to sides.
  • Specify motor rating requirements for operation in coal dust atmosphere.
  • Use FloPro© Vibrator Selector Program to size and select vibrator.

Match Plate Extraction

Air Operated:
Comments:
  • Vibrator bolts to match plate and runs while plate is extracted from mold.

Railcar Unloading of Bentonite

Air Operated: Call 800-842-7284
