Our silo-bin-hopper dischargers include Circle Feeder , DUC unit and Live Bottoms.
Circle Feeder 环形下料器
Circle Feeder will be mounted at the flat bottom of a storage bin, wtih agitation beams and pressure cone inside the bin, pushes the bulk solids onto the discharge outlets (can be one or multiple, at bottom or sides) avoiding bridging and dead flowing inside the bin. The storage bin can be a cylindrical shape hopper, or a round big bin with symmetric or assymmetric cone. A Circle Feeder saves as much height as possible the storage bin as long as maitaining the gravity discharge flow smoothly.
The DUC discharge unit is specially designed to prevent bridging of product at the hopper outlet (up to 5 m³). A rotating paddle inside the hopper cone keeps the product in motion. When mixed products are used, the rotating blade avoids product separation at the hopper outlet. The DUC guarantees a smooth flow of product and maximizes the filling efficiency of the component installed below the unit (e.g. a rotary valve or screw conveyor).
Live Bottoms 活化仓底出料器
Live bottoms are multiple screw systems (depending on the project) for the controlled dosage or discharge from a bunker or silo of bulk goods with poor flow properties.
When to use live bottoms?
- For dosing products with strong bridging properties from buffers.
The entire buffer becomes ‘active’, preventing dead zones from forming.
- When a lot of product needs to be buffered but there is little height available and you want to maximize use of the space.
A custom-made live bottom
We also develop and supply live bottoms for powders, granules, flakes or granulates with low bulk density. The systems are available in various widths. Applications for round, square and rectangular storage bunkers are also available.
