Client requested a vibrating table system to densify and remove air from a slurry mix in molds while manufacturing various types and colors of architectural stone.
The masonry mix is prepared in a batch mixer and then poured by gravity into a prepared molds.
The molds are then conveyed by roller conveyor to a Metso BEST vibratory belt conveyor.
The vibratory belt conveyor consists of two vibrating tables, which are flat on the top and are driven by two each vibratory motors located under the vibrating table. A flat rubber belt rides over the top of the two vibrating tables.
The molds are conveyed on the rubber belt over the top of vibratory tables. The vibratory action causes the slurry mix to settle into the mold and entrained air is released from the slurry mix.
The frequency and the force of the vibrating tables is adjustable for each type of architectural stone being manufactured. The conveying rate of the belt is controlled by a variable frequency drive (VFD) which is included as part of the system.
Belt width and belt length is determined by the size and weight of the molds in use to manufacture the architectural stone. Process rate is determined by batch mixer.
