released a new line of bulk material handlers, focused on improving process
flow and efficiency.

 

The Cougar® B Series Vibrators from Martin Engineering
minimize accumulation in storage vessels, transfer chutes, dust collectors and
other locations, maintaining throughput and reducing maintenance time required
to clear blockages. All models are totally-enclosed, non-vented (TENV) designs
with Class H high-temperature windings and enclosures rated IP-66.

“Some manufacturers use Class F windings,” explained Martin
Engineering product specialist David Ruggio. “That typically allows continuous
duty at mid-level force ratings, but we wanted to design these units to go
beyond that kind of performance.  The
benefit is a cooler-running vibrator that lasts longer in demanding service
conditions.”

 

With dozens of different models available, Martin
Engineering offers the water-tight, dust-tight designs in a wide selection of
voltages, speeds, force ratings and frequencies to suit virtually any
application, including hazardous locations. Specific models range from 70
pounds of centrifugal force output to 16,500 pounds, in speed ranges of 850, 1170,
1750 and 3450 RPM.  All of the B Series
vibrators are electric, and assembled in the USA.
