Bin Activators have been proven worldwide to give a continuous, but controlled flow of difficult-to-handle materials from bulk storage silos, through the controlled use of vibration.
pneuCONVEYOR – solves the difficulty by cutting off the lower cone section of the bin and replacing it with a Bin Activator consisting of a relatively flat dished head and baffle. These flat support surfaces carry the overhead load without permitting the additional compression that occurs in a conical bottom.
The Bin Activator is flexibly hung from the upper bin by rubber-bushed forged steel hangers. An elastic sleeve of reinforced rubber seals the small gap between the main bin and movable bottom. An integral baffle relieves head load over the outlet.
pneuCONVEYOR – Bin Dischargers are ruggedly built, simple to install and come with pneuCONVEYOR’s – unconditional performance guarantee. Our Bin Discharger’s simple, compact design incorporates all of the important features customers have come to expect from pneuCONVEYOR. It has been established that under vibration the shear strength of the product in a storage vessel decreases. The action of the Bin Activator is to break down the shear strength and thus induce flow. When the Activator is switched off the material shear strength is restored and product once again ceases to flow.
By careful design, the Bin Activator eliminates rat holing, degradation and segregation of products within the silo, ensuring an even flow of material on a mass-flow basis (the first-in, first out principle).
Bin Activators are ideally suited to a cylindrical vessel, but can be successfully applied to square or rectangular bins. Their low profile allows for a substantial reduction in the silo height and its associated building costs.
