Flow-Easy vibrator a speedy alternative for Tierney Transport

Tierney’s Transport owner Craig Tierney has been quick to praise the virtues of Enmin’s Flow-Easy vibrators.

Tierney’s West Australian based Tierney’s Transport faced a specific issue with the back trailer in attempting to accommodate a hoist which in turn caused materials including lime, sand and fertiliser to build up.

“We had continual issues with the material getting stuck on the inside of the trailer – the only way to get the material moving again was to physically climb into the trailer with a shovel and free it manually; both risky and time consuming,” Tierney said.

To avoid the risky practice of ‘shunting’ the vehicle, Flow-Easy vibrators can speed up the unloading of bulk products, providing an efficient, safe and controlled load discharge. The vibration loosens compacted material, effectively eliminating compacted, residual build up.

Tierney saw Flow-Easy vibrators advertised in a trucking publication and decided to investigate further. After discussion with Enmin about his specific issues and relatively simple installation procedure, he hasn’t looked back. Vibrators can be removed easily and quickly from existing trailers and installed on the new units.

“We’ve had it fitted for a few months now and it’s working really well. It’s significantly sped up the unloading process saving us time and hassle whilst ensuring the safety of my driver,” said Tierney.

Another benefit of the vibrators is that they’re a simple, cost-effective alternative to body liners, significantly reducing the risk of cross-contamination, particularly where grains and fertiliser are being transported.

“In addition to assisting with unloading our usual bulk loads, we’ve also found it very helpful when unloading pellets and grain out the back of the trailer,” Tierney added. “You simply hit the button occasionally and that way the pellets come out evenly and not in one big rush.”

Enmin’s range includes 12- and 24-volt electric vibrators along with hydraulic and pneumatically powered options. Some transport applications require vibration to be applied for an extended amount of time. If required, they can be run continuously, rather than the more generally utilised intermittent operation of the electric models.

In addition to the truck vibrators, Enmin also has an extensive range of industrial vibrators to suit any industry that handles bulk material, such as agriculture, mining, quarrying, recycling, ports and terminals.
