For many years, the necessity to store, move and manipulate material in bulk has created a problem: how to get it out of the storage vessel without losing any product?

Typical problems include bridging, ratholing, clinging and arching. Once a pluggage exists, it becomes necessary to remove it in order to continue with production. One of the first things an operator will do is try to dislodge it in some manner, usually, it is done manually, offering huge hazard risks.

Historically, techniques such as water and air lances, silo cleanout equipment, shotgun blasts and even dynamite have been used to eliminate material blockage. The most common means of material removal over the years is the use of a sledgehammer.

Martin® manufactures a wide range of transfer point options specifically engineered to prevent the clog of material and maintain the production flow.

Unloading should be trouble-free!

Martin Engineering’s truck vibrators get bulk materials moving quickly and thoroughly by energizing the load and breaking the friction between particles. That means you can unload truck loads faster and get drivers back on the road more quickly.

Cougar® DC Truck Vibrator: Rugged and economical, the Cougar® DC Truck Vibrators provide power to improve the speed and efficiency of unloading dump trucks and other mobile equipment. Models are available to suit your truck and your typical load.

Quickly sort loose items by size

We manufacture both electric and hydraulic vibrators designed to install on a metal screen for separating a wide range of bulk materials, including gravel, plastic pellets, small parts, pharmaceuticals, silica/sand and food products. By using a series of screens with progressively smaller mesh openings, you can quickly sort loose items by size. Screen vibration can also be used to sift mining products like coal, gold and other elements, as well as any type of bulk material that can form clumps or compactions.

Air is power!

From shaking the air bubbles out of poured concrete to emptying railcars, these vibrators are a flexible, portable solution.

Our pneumatic vibrators are available in models that deliver varying levels of vibratory force, which allows you to choose the one that is ideally suited for your application. Depending on specific needs, customers can choose from portable motor-driven, roller or turbine vibrators, each of which generates vibration from a rapid unbalanced rotation of the moving part inside the vibrator’s casing.
