Martin Vibration Systems (MVSS), Marine City, Mich., introduced a series of food-grade pneumatic vibrators designed to enhance movement of moist, powdered, granular or pelleted material through small hoppers, bins and tubes. 

The Bantam Series offers powerful vibration and versatility in a small package. The low-noise, linear units are washdown-safe and purpose-built for sanitary applications. Plus, they are engineered to endure continuous use, even at high and low ambient temperatures (32°-140°F). 

Available in NTS 80, NTP 18 and NTK 8AL HA models, the Bantam Series is sealed in a sturdy PTFE clad aluminum alloy housing that attaches to the facility’s existing compressed air network using an 1/8 NPT nickel-plated adapter fitting. The frequency can be adjusted by varying the pressure of the air supply and the amplitude by throttling the exhaust (NTK 8AL HA).

Suitable for overcoming static friction and removing dry material buildups, these vibrators are particularly effective on vessels with narrow discharge apertures and small volumetric capacity. 

Features include an instant on/off design, the Martin Stick & Shake adhesive mounting system for small bins, hoppers, tubes and chutes and a programmable logic control (PLC).
