Interval impactorsThe new PKL® series interval impactors from Martin® Vibration Systems are designed to deliver the force needed to dislodge sticky materials from process vessels, chutes, pipes, storage bins and dust collectors. The company says that the systems are further characterized by:

  • The very high acceleration generates individual blows similar to a hammer, while reducing noise and energy costs, as well as the potential for bin damage and injury. 
  • Based on individual application requirements, the company can supply interval impactors providing from 120 to 1,700 pounds of force to move material that resists the effects or rotary vibration. 
  • With variable impact frequency from 10 to 60 per minute, it can be tuned to suit specific material characteristics and operating environments, minimizing noise, energy costs and equipment damage without the need for an external timer. 
  • The low operating frequency combined with the “air-against-spring” design translates to very low energy usage, yet the new impactors deliver 30 percent more force than preceding designs. 
  • They can operate from supplied air pressure from 45-115 PSI, with a 5-micron filter, pressure regulator and lubricator. 
  • They are designed for a maximum operating temperature of 250ºF (121ºC), with high-temperature models capable of handling up to 320ºF (160ºC).
