Introducing the Brunette SmartVIBE® 5826 Vibrating Conveyor

The Brunette SmartVIBE® is a unique and simple vibrating conveyor, designed for low cost maintenance and maximum up-time efficiencies. The patented design allows operators to change the conveyor speed by utilizing a Variable Speed Drive (VFD) to control the drive motor RPM which effects the conveyor stroke. An internal counterweight ensures optimal balance, even at different speeds. The SmartVIBE has no external balance beams and no coil springs. It features a springless vibratory mechanism which is fully balanced at each stroke.

This versatile conveyor can bring new efficiencies to many different industries and applications including biomass production and transportation; sawmill and plywood mills, OSB; urban recycling and processing; pellet manufacturing; food processing; agricultural; and mining.

The vibrating conveyor drive is designed to be inboard complete with a single electric motor.
An eccentric shaft, driven by a belt and a sheave complete with belt guard, is mounted in roller bearing assemblies and connected to the conveyor with custom elastomer elements that provide trouble free operation in summer and winter.

Parallel torsional shafts are mounted in a heavy duty housing, secured in place with B-Loks and connected to the rocker arm. The rocker arms provide a link between the counterbalance weight and the trough. The counterbalance weight is a unique design feature of the Brunette SmartVIBE. It can be converted to a secondary trough to increase material flow, or to carry fines when a screen is being used.

This vibrating conveyor can be custom built to suit your specific needs. The versatility of the Brunette SmartVIBE lies in the many options available for varied applications. The conveyor can be constructed in different widths and lengths, with size specific screening options, metal detector, or rare earth magnets.

Our newest model, the Brunette SmartVIBE 5826, is 58″ wide and comes with fines screen and metal trap. The configuration of this model ensures that you get the cleanest useable material flowing into your grinders or chippers to maximize your product yield, while protecting equipment downstream.
