How do you succeed when costs keep fluctuating? Industrial vibrators!
In industries like shipping and trucking, where your primary goal is to transport products and materials from point A to point B efficiently and safely, profitability can be a moving target because of all the variables involved. When the price of diesel fuel goes up, costs increase and profits get squeezed. When the dollar loses ground, the demand for U.S. imports drops and fewer products have to be delivered to ports where they can be shipped overseas. And regardless of whether times are good or bad, shipping and trucking operations always run on tight margins. And while there are a lot of factors you can’t control, the variable you can control is efficiency.
Unload your delivery with industrial vibration.
Many types of bulk materials – especially those that retain moisture like the coal used as fuel at a power plant – can adhere at the particle level to the sides of containers. When that happens, it becomes a real problem to thoroughly empty the material from a truck bed or unload it from a railcar and you wind up sending a worker to bang on the side of the equipment with a hammer to loosen the material and get it flowing. And with railcars, ratholing and bridging can occur, which presents a safety hazard if someone tries to break up the obstruction from beneath the discharge port.
At Martin Engineering, we manufacture a line of industrial vibrators designed specifically to help you thoroughly unload bulk solids from truck beds and railcars. By applying an industrial vibrator to the side of a truck bed or railcar during unloading, the bonds created at the particle level, both between particles and with the interior walls, are broken and the material can flow freely. Depending on your application and conditions, you can choose from portable models that can be applied as needed or models that are permanently installed. We also manufacture products that make it easier to open stubborn discharge ports and prevent spillage and airborne dust from escaping while the cargo is being unloaded.
We have decades of experience working with railcar shipping and trucking customers, helping them stay profitable in a challenging industry. So, whatever your specific needs are, or whatever problem you may be faced with, our professional engineers and technicians have probably seen it before and already come up with a solution!
