Ensure complete discharge from hoppers with this vibrator

By Chemical Engineering |

Azo

The new Vibration Bottom system (photo) enables safe discharge of powdery, crystalline, fatty and granular bulk materials from hoppers. The lateral, imbalance vibrator sets the vibration bottom in horizontal, circular vibration. Vibrations are transmitted to the materials column via the simultaneously vibrating relieving cone inside the vibration bottom. This sets the bulk materials in motion and the level drops evenly without resulting in funnel flow or bridging. Bulk materials reach the outlet safely through the annular gap. Hoppers are discharged completely without leaving residue. Funnel formation and bridging in the hopper are prevented. The system can be used for virtually all bulk materials, even those that typically flow poorly. — Azo GmbH & Co. KG, Osterburken, Germany
