Vibrating hoppers for handling fibrous and flaky materials

By Chemical Engineering |

Vibra ScrewThe Live Bin is a self-contained vibrating hopper that is designed to provide positive discharge of a wide range of materials, including those in the micron size range, as well as fibrous and flaky media, on a first-in, first-out basis, assuring mass flow and eliminating material segregation. The bins may be used to discharge to any feeder or process line, or wherever a surge bin is required. Because the Live Bin’s design does not require a flexible seal, it is especially suited for sanitary applications.Live Bins may be operated on their own support legs, or can be hung from overhead steel, making them readily adaptable for scale mounting. Capacities range from 3 to 100 ft3 of storage.— VibraScrew Inc., Totowa, N.J.
