Enhancing Salt Truck Spreaders with Industrial Vibrators

Enhancing Salt Truck Spreaders with Industrial Vibrators

Winter road maintenance is a critical task that ensures safety and passability. Salt truck spreaders are at the forefront of this operation, but they often face challenges such as salt clumping and sticking. Industrial vibrators have emerged as a solution to these issues, with companies like Chicago Vibrator Products, Martin Engineering, and Cougar offering innovative products.


The Challenge: Salt Clumping and Sticking

Salt, when exposed to moisture, tends to clump and stick to the walls of the hopper in a salt truck spreader. This can interrupt the flow of salt to the spreader, leading to inefficient spreading and potentially hazardous road conditions.


The Solution: Industrial Vibrators

Industrial vibrators are designed to tackle this problem. They are installed on salt hoppers on the back of snow plow trucks. The vibrators shake the hopper wall, breaking free the clumping and sticking salt. This ensures a steady flow of salt to the spreader, preventing any material hang-ups.
