Gough Econ Ships Its 275th Vibratory Unit Manufactured at Its Charlotte, North Carolina Facility


CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Gough Econ, Inc. announced that it has shipped its 275th vibratory unit manufactured at its Charlotte, North Carolina plant since production began in 2002.

The 275th vibratory system is a part of two twin rotary feeders sold to Giant Snack Foods of Wahpeton, N.D. The feeders are part of an integrated packaging line the company is installing to feed existing Gough Econ bucket elevators. Product from the bucket elevators is delivered to the form fill and seal packaging machines at the North Dakota facility. Giant Snack Foods is a processor and packager of snack foods including Sunflower seeds in various flavors.

According to Gough Econ, vibratory energy is one of the most economic methods of conveying and screening material if it is applied correctly. The result is an economic and energy efficient operation for added reliability, gentler product handling, optimum flexibility and significant savings due to enhanced productivity.

Twin rotary feeders are primarily used for applications beyond the scope of an electromagnetic drive and especially when the system needs to be over 5 feet in length or over 18 inches in width.

The twin rotary motors enable the customer to process materials from 50 to 3,500 cubic feet per hour. Equipment ranges in size from 12 inches long and 6 inches wide to 28 feet long and 4 feet wide. Depending on the application, the system can be used to feed, convey, screen or elevate material.

Other twin rotary equipment available from Gough Econ include tubular conveyors, Vibraflo(TM) circular screens that compliment Gough Econ's line of vibrating screens, and vibratory plastic pellet screens.

"Since 2002, we have sold more twin rotary vibrators and screens powered by dual motors than electromagnetic drives," noted Andy Leitch, Vice President of Sales for Gough Econ. "We refer to these feeders as our gentle giants since they are so powerful yet gentle in handling material."

Initially concentrated in the food and chemical markets, applications for Gough Econ's vibrators have expanded into other markets such as power plants, recycling facilities, glass cullet and scrap processing facilities. Typical applications range from basic food and sugar production to salt, batteries, fertilizer, metal powder, soap, detergents and ceramics.
