Twin Shaft Vibratory Drive

September 26, 2011
A new twin shaft vibratory drive from process equipment manufacturer The Witte Co. features a proprietary design that produces the robust linear vibration required to deliver consistent motion to its large, high capacity fluid bed dryers, coolers, screeners and conveyors. Developed for smooth, high volume, 24/7 operation, the new twin shaft drive advances the company’s standard forced vibration drive design with a low maintenance approach that replaces gears, drive springs, counter reacting bases and crank arms with belts, oversized spherical roller bearings and an enlarged eccentric counter weight.
