The NAVCO Extendovibe was designed as a vibratory solution for unique applications. This extended piston vibrator can be used as a flow solution when other vibrators are not feasible due to hopper wall thickness or inability to weld.
The Extendovibe can be supported by a form of brace or bracket and is positioned a ¼ to ½ inch from the surface to be impacted. It functions by rapidly tapping an interchangeable rubber knob to the surface in a predetermined location. This effectively reduces the sliding friction and strength of the bulk material to allow for improved flow. Common applications for the Extendovibe include improved unloading and discharge of IBCs, bulk bags, tote bins and other plastic hoppers.
The Extendovibe's extended piston features a threaded end, which may also be used to attach the vibrator directly to another medium.
Timed impact models deliver a single high-energy impulse triggered by the output of a timer or other controlling device. Timed impact units are particularly effective in applications where dry materials adhere to vessel walls.
