What Are Settling Tables?
Settling tables — also called vibrating tables — are work tables with components that cause the surface to vibrate. This equipment consists of high-quality metal platforms with either rotary electric vibrators or pneumatic linear vibrators, depending on your required frequency and power. They also include digital variable frequency drives (VFDs) for precise frequency control.
These custom-made tables are durable and can handle loads ranging from 200 to 4,000 pounds. Choose between a flat deck, grip top and other design options for a versatile product that perfectly matches your project specifications. Settling tables help settle, compact and deaerate materials in boxes, bags and other containers.
Other uses for settling tables include:
- Food processing: Settling tables help you package delicate food items and accurately portion products. They can also assist in breaking up lumps in salt, flour and other materials that readily absorb moisture. Custom grid tops offer further versatility by allowing you to separate food from seeds, pits and husks during processing.
- Plastic processing: Settling tables enable you to accurately control plastic pellets and powders. During the casting process, the vibrations help deaerate composite materials and de-mold products.
- Construction: You can use settling tables to vibrate molds during concrete casting. These tables are also perfect for fiberglass, concrete and foundry sand compaction.
