Start springs for piston vibrators
Normally a linear piston vibrator is mounted at an angle. When the air supply is turned off, gravity works to return the piston to the starting position, ensuring that it starts right up next time the air is turned on.
When a piston vibrator is mounted such that the piston is within 15 degrees of horizontal, the piston will not always reset itself after the operating air supply is turned off. In this configuration, a start spring is used to locate the piston in the correct starting position.
Start Springs can be installed in the field or installed at the factory when ordered. Not sure if you need a start spring? Contact our sales department or call 800-320-4044 for immediate assistance.
