Bin activators are designed to enhance solids handling

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

This company’s Bin Activators (photo) help to eliminate bridging and ratholing in bulk-solids handling applications. They also reduce particle segregation and promote improved mass flow. The company offers a number of Bin Activator designs to meet a wide range of processing requirements: the original Dished Head design; the Model HDBD, which uses a compound slope body; and the Rolled Cone Bin Discharger design. For trouble-free installation, a pre-assembled mounting ring is offered. A patented beaded sleeve helps to avoid issues related to leakage and slippage. Users can choose from oil- or grease-lubricated vibrators for their system. — Vibra Screw, Inc., Totowa, N.J.
