Hoppers promote effective flow of challenging materials

The Live Bin product line (photo) includes fully assembled and self-contained vibrating hoppers that are designed to promote the reliable flow of any dry material. Available capacities range from 3 to 100 ft 3 of bulk-solids storage. These bins can handle a diverse array of bulk solids, ranging from micron-sized particles to fibrous and flaky materials, and they discharge the contents on a “first-in/first-out” basis, ensuring mass flow and eliminating material segregation during operation, says the company. They can be used to discharge to any feeder or process line, or wherever a surge bin is required. Its design does not require a flexible seal, so it is especially suitable for sanitary applications, according to the manufacturer. — Vibra Screw, Inc., Totowa, N.J.
