vibratory Conveyors

GEA Scan-Vibro Conveyors

Vibrating conveyors are ideal for conveying a vast array of fragile products, such as agglomerated, instantized and standard powders, granules, pellets and larger products and serve in for example the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries. Product degradation is virtually eliminated because of the extremely gentle handling that vibratory technology offers and the fact that the product never comes in contact with moving parts.

Vibrating conveyors offer a simple and efficient means to meter and convey your materials. These open or enclosed units will handle nearly any material, regardless of size and bulk density in a reliable and economical manner. The key to success is its low total cost of ownership, robustness, simplicity and efficiency. There are no augers, bearings or seals which can degrade material, leak or require maintenance.

Open and Closed Vibrating Conveyors

GEA Scan-Vibro Conveyors can be designed to fit your need. They can be tube or rectangular shaped, and the latter can be in an open or closed design. Bi-directional conveying solutions are available in all designs.

Our conveyors serve in many industries, for example the food, dairy, and nutritional industries, and feature sanitary designs. The vibrating conveyors are applicable to operation with product characteristics like wet, dry, warm, greasy, frozen, hygroscopic, and oxygen absorbing. They are also able to convey with simultaneous spreading, cooling, heating, draining, distribution, drying, grading, dusting and unification.
