Brüel & Kjær's new 80 kN shaker is the first air-cooled shaker to combine performance and power, traditionally found in water-cooled shakers
Brüel & Kjær is shaking up the market with the launch of its new 80 kN shaker - the V8900.
This is the first air-cooled shaker to combine performance and power, traditionally found in water-cooled shakers, with user-friendly operation, reduced maintenance and low running costs typically found in air-cooled systems.
Shakers are used in a range of applications to test equipment and machines for integrity and durability, ensuring the product can withstand the demanding conditions of the real world.
The V8900 will provide industrial, automotive and aerospace industries with outstanding performance in several key areas:
- 80 kN sine force for cost-effective testing of complex and heavy payloads
- 3 kNm overturning moment, reducing the need for guided head expanders
- 3 kHz frequency for testing smaller payloads
- 101.6 mm (4 inch) displacement and high velocity combined enhances shock and random test performance
The shaker has been designed with a high overturning moment, giving it stability when testing irregular and unbalanced payloads, without the need for guided head expanders or intricate mounting assemblies.
With a versatile mix of straightforward installation, low running costs and high performance, this revolutionary high-end air-cooled shaker is set to dramatically change the market.
“This is a game changer in the market and we are very excited to introduce this new class of air-cooled shaker, which is simple and cost-effective to install. It also delivers unmatched capability and productivity in an air-cooled 80 kN shaker,” said Brian Zielinski-Smith, Product Manager at Brüel & Kjær.
