A vibrating table is used to aid the compaction of materials in containers, boxes, and bulk bags. The vibrating action helps materials and products nest closely and settle to reduce product volume to a minimum. This can often have a benefit to container size and reduce the cost of transport.
- Big bag filling and flattening of peaked material
- Big bag and FIBC
- Drum filling and compaction
- Mould filling and compaction
Typical applications of a vibratory table include:
- Reducing product volume of food grains for transporting
- Compacting precast cement moulds for concrete
- Fill and compact chemicals and pills in pharmaceutical drum or keg
- Compacting rubber, plastic or glass particles to reduce container size
The tabletop usually takes the form of either a flat or domed plate onto which the container is loaded, with big bags often being filled on a flat table so that a pallet can be placed beneath before filling.
Compacting material in bulk bags:
A common use of a vibration table is to compact material in bulk bags - adding significantly to the stability of the bag as well as the volume contained. This has a great advantage when bulk bags are being transported or stored - allowing for bags to be stacked safely (in accordance to health and safety standards) and also saving costs by minimising space used in transit.
Using a vibrating table for precast concrete moulds:
Table units are also often used to reduce the trapped bubbles when making concrete molds or castings, and to evenly compact the concrete out into the mould. The food industry also benefits from using this technique, as foods such as chocolate often require the trapped bubbles worked out when filling a mould. As specialists in our field, our compaction tables for concrete moulds and chocolate moulds are not the very cheapest on the market, but always provide exceptional results.
As part of a filling and weighing system:
Often, filling stations use domed tables to aid filling of material into bag corners. During the filling process of both bags and
Vibrating tables can also be applied to specialist applications such as filter compaction and canister filling.
