Vibrating Bin Discharger Systems
Vibrating Bin Dischargers are proven to enhance the flow of bulk materials from storage. They provide an efficient means for discharging dry materials from storage bins on a first-in, first-out basis with positive, continuous flow. Carrier offers a variety of discharging solutions, including vibrating bin dischargers, live bottom bins, vibrating live bins and storage pile dischargers.
Basic Theory for Vibrating Bin Dischargers, Live Bottom Bins, Vibrating Live Bins & Storage Pile Dischargers
The primary function of a bin discharger is to cause material to flow. It is not a metering device. Metering can only be accomplished by some type of feeder, such as vibrating or belt type. Vibrating bins can also discharge directly into a truck or rail car.
Carrier Equipment Types
Vibrating Bin Discharger – Carrier/Vibranetics vibrating bin dischargers provide an efficient means for discharging dry materials from storage bins on a first-in, first-out basis with positive, continuous flow. The primary function of a vibrating bin discharger is to cause material to flow. It is not a metering device, though often a feeder can accomplish metering.
Live Bottom Bins – A convenient variation of the bin discharger is the live bottom bin. This pre-engineered, pre-assembled unit is particularly suited for new or expanded facilities. A standard live bottom bin consists of a cylindrical tank that is fitted with a full-size vibrating bin discharger. A “Super Seal” is used to seal the discharger to the bin.
Vibrating Live Bins – Another variation of the vibrating bin discharger is the vibrating live bin. The entire unit vibrates rather than just the discharger at the bottom. The units are completely pre-engineered and pre-assembled and available in a wide range of standard sizes. Custom sizes are also available.
Storage Pile Dischargers – Storage piles are an economical arrangement for storage of large quantities of bulk solids. The storage pile discharger is engineered to produce a predominantly vertical flow-stream of predictable diameter to 1) withdraw uniformly and concentrically and 2) maintain constant command of the top layer sloughs.
