Bin Activators

Bin activators are used to promote reliable material discharge from bulk material storage. They are mounted to the bottom of hoppers and silos via hanging arms. When switched on, they pass vibration to the stored material reducing the potential to bridge, rat hole or segregate.

Applications for bin activators include:

Vibratory feeders are usually installed together with bin activators to assist in material withdrawal from storage. Proper interfacing is critical to ensure that material flows optimally.

Electronic controls and timers are used with great effect in bin activators. Ideal operation duration and delays can be established through trial and error and programmed either prior or post material withdrawal.

Trough construction is generally from mild or stainless steel. Wear resistant materials such as bisalloy or hardox are also be used.

Liner options are numerous:
