Global Dual Roller Hi-Frequency External Vibrators

Global High Frequency GCL & GCD

The Global high frequency dual roller vibrators are well suited for compacting or unloading large quantities of fine materials, such as sand or cement, from railcars, batch hoppers, or storage bins. Excellent for use with wet fine material. The high frequency excites the fine particles and the high force moves the large mass.

They are also highly useful for consolidating concrete. It takes this unique combination of frequency and force to remove air bubbles, disperse the large aggregates, and ensure the cement fines are evenly distributed to coat the aggregates. Proper use of vibration means less water is needed, which produces stronger concrete. Air bubble removal and even cement-aggregate distribution produces a smoother finish. High frequency dual roller vibrators make pouring concrete quicker and easier without harming the forms. They are commonly found on battery molds, compaction tables, tilt tables, and a large variety of forms and molds for girders, tees, columns, culverts, vaults, containers, septic tanks, concrete pipe, etc.  

Features of the Global HF External Vibrators include:

  • Produces Uniform, Directional Flow.
  • High Frequency and High Amplitude Vibration.
  • Versatile - Easy to control force and frequency by adjusting air supply.
  • More Reliable Start-up - Dual-roller design assures fast, reliable starts every time. Single roller designs are frequently hard to start.
  • No Bearings or Motors - means reliable performance, lower maintenance costs, and simple, easy operation.
  • Fully Portable - GCL model is portable and can easily be moved from form to form. Fits standard mounting brackets. A convenient handle allows easy and safe transport.
  • Rigid Mounting technique - Provides secure mount for maximum safety and performance.
  • Most Rugged & Wear Resistant Available - Only two moving parts are the two hardened steel rollers. The steel shaft is hardened and ground for long life and even wear. Extra short bolts screw directly into the housing instead of long through bolts that break more easily. A single piece shaft with a hose barb on one end lasts longer than conventional two-piece shafts that can fret or rust. Inside cover surfaces are chrome plated for longer life.
  • Easy repair and maintenance - Global offers replacement parts and an extensive rebuild program that refurbish the vibrators to like-new condition. This can significantly reduce the cost of ownership by extending equipment life.

Air Blasters

Global GW_Series_Air_BlasterAir Blasters are used in numerous applications to restore material flow where the use of vibrators is not practical. Global's new patented G400 direct blast Air Blasters for cement kiln pre-heaters, steel mills, and other extreme heat applications produce up to 50% more force than the leading competition's comparable models. Superior valve seals prevent air loss between blasts (blasters using a metal-to-metal seal leak air). Most important, Global is the first in the industry to have instant valve closure without using a valve spring. Valve springs frequently break causing down time.

Global Air Blaster features include:

  • Produces Results Quickly and Efficiently - Quick blast of air permeates the material and dislodges trapped solids.
  • Handles Big Loads - Air blast spreads out in a cone pattern to aerate and loosen a large volume of material at one time. When used in combination, multiple Air Blasters can restore flow to hundreds, thousands, or millions of cubic feet of material.
  • Quiet Operation - Noise of air blast is dampened by the material being aerated.
  • Energy Efficient - Air Blasters have low air consumption since they collect air and are fired intermittently. They require only a small fraction of the air used to operate pneumatic vibrators.
  • Does not Compact Material - Blast of air in the bin aerates the material rather than compacting it.
  • Minimal Maintenance - Single moving part, no springs, no motors, no bearings, make Air Blasters easy to maintain for many years. No lubrication is required.
  • More Powerful Air Blast - Lightweight piston, short piston travel, direct blast design, and aerodynamically designed exhaust windows allow the tank to be emptied more quickly creating a stronger, more productive blast.
  • No Leakage - Piston designed to prevent air loss during blast. Polypropylene piston conforms to the valve seat for a superior seal, preventing air seepage between blasts. Air loss can be a problem in blasters using a metal-to-metal seal.
  • Fills Faster - Standard quick fill port allows tank to fill in less than 60 seconds (2.5" & 4.0" discharge models). This makes rapid repeat firing possible when needed.
  • Longevity - Corrosion, abrasion, and impact resistant piston. Coated valve parts resist acid and basic environments. Piston movement engineered to prevent excessive wear.
  • Ease of Service - All parts individually replaceable. If a part becomes worn or damaged, it is not necessary to replace the entire valve.
  • ASME Certified Pressure Vessels - All details of design, materials, construction, and workmanship of each vessel conforms to the ASME Code for Pressure Vessels, Section VIII, Division 1. Documentation available for each Air Blaster upon request.
  • Five Year Warranty
