GT TURBINE VIBRATORS

In the world of turbine vibrators the GT Golden Turbine Vibrator has been rated as the top of the line
for many, many years.

The vibrator life is unparalleled thanks to the housing precision machining and the special bearings used.
For light daily uses of 60 minutes or less there is no noticeable difference when compared to other turbine vibrators on the market.
However once the vibrator is used extensively 2, 4 or more working hours per day then the operators can see what a GT vibrator is really capable of.

GT FEATURES
Noise level never exceeds 75 dba.
Bearings come pregreased, no lubrication is required.
Bearings are oversized to dramatically increase vibrators’ life.
Can be used at temperatures of up to 230 F (280 F for the GT4 & GT6) GT "S" models use unbalance weights of heavy metal (instead of the standard brass) that produces a slower frequency and a higher amplitude.

GT DESIGN
The vibration is produced by the centrifugal force of the positive and negative unbalanced moments in the rotor.
The rotor is supported on two heavy duty, prelubricated, matched shielded ball bearings.
A special long life grease ensures a long working life.
The inner and outer raceways of the bearings are designed so that the bearings can be easily replaced using only a pin-wrench.
The endplates are fitted with right- and left-hand threads and are self-locking.

TECHNICAL DATA
Unbalance Weight : Aluminium Rotor with positive and negative unbalance
(brass or heavy metal)
Lubrication : not necessary
Air Supply : 30 to 90 PS (2 to 6 bar )
Air Type : Clean, use of filter (40 µm) recommended
Body : Aluminum, stove-enamelled yellow
End Caps : Aluminum, black anodized, threaded
Max Temperature : 250°F=120°C
Noise Level Range : 60 to 75 dBA with silencer

ADDITIONAL TECHNICAL INFORMATION

The vibrator body is made from an extruded aluminum alloy profile, and the threaded end plates are hard coated so that the vibrator can be used in the food and pharmaceutical industries.

Air pressure inlets and exhaust ports have BSP thread (British Standard Pipe) but will accept US NPT ( National Pipe Thread)

Due to its low noise level it may be used instead of all other vibrator types where there are low noise requirements. It can also be used wherever no lubricated air pressure is available .

The Golden Turbine Vibrator can be placed in any position, but in order to increase its lifetime the vibrator should be operated, whenever possible, with the rotor axle horizontal so that the ball bearings do not get side pressure.
Intermittent operation is not suggested since when air pressure is cut down, the rotor will continue running for about ten seconds. Thus, it should only be operated intermittently if the off time is more than 10-20 seconds.

Lubrication is not required, but an air line filter should be used to prevent dirt from clogging the muffler.

GT selection in flow aid applications

Very often it is better to run two smaller vibrators instead of a large one.
The units should be placed opposite each other on the bin or hopper so the structure is not stressed too much at one single point.
