Vibratory Conveying Systems

Key’s Smart Shaker® Vibratory Conveyors combine gentle material handling with superior sanitation and reliability.  Using a diagonal, harmonic motion to move product forward, Smart Shaker® Vibratory Conveyors are ideal for product distribution on processing lines and packaging lines as well as product alignment, fines removal, scalping, dewatering, inspection, and more.

All objects have a natural frequency or set of frequencies where they will vibrate freely.  An example of this is a pendulum, which oscillates at the same frequency once set in motion.  Vibratory systems operating at the natural frequency of the pan are more energy efficient, and distribute little stress into the surrounding environment.  With Iso-Flo®, frame-mounted Iso-Drives® and StrongArm™ spring arm assemblies distribute energy equally to all parts of the conveyor pan in a controlled, natural-frequency operation.  The low amplitude, high frequency movement minimizes product degradation and reduces maintenance.

With Impulse®, frame-mounted electromagnetic drives and StrongArm™ spring arm assemblies distribute energy equally to all parts of the conveyor pan in a controlled, natural-frequency operation.  Solid-state controls allow conveying pan amplitudes to range from zero to 100 percent, which makes Impulse ideal for lines that handle a wide variety of products as well as lines that require precise metering and low maintenance.

With Marathon, externally mounted drives act on a stationary frame and StrongArm™ spring arm assemblies distribute energy equally to all parts of the conveyor pan in a controlled, natural-frequency operation.  Extending beyond the 30-foot length that limits most vibratory shakers, Marathon reaches up to 100 feet in length.   

Committed to industry leadership through innovation, Key is driven to develop first-in-class and best-in-class technologies.
