Bin Activators

February 5, 2014

Spiroflow Systems Bin ActivatorSpiroflow Systems offers an adjustable bin activator to control the discharge of powders & granules. Whether the material comes from a silo or a bulk material handling system, Spiroflow’s Bin Activator effectively alleviates material bridging while controlling flow rates.

The Spiroflow Bin Activator promotes material flow via vibration and regulates the flow of solids with blades that close quickly and effectively. The bin activator feeder has blades that are fully adjustable for accurate and repeatable control of solids flow. Energy is imparted directly into the solids by the vibrating blades to maintain flow and the discharger control valve provides close tolerance blades for positive shut-off of solids flow. An optional flow promoter can be included to induce the flow of difficult materials.

Spiroflow Systems offers two standard bin activators, the 12-inch SBA300 and the 24-inch SBA 600, but other sizes are available. Bin Activators are made of carbon or stainless steel and can be controlled manually or electronically. As with Spiroflow’s complete line of bulk material handling equipment, their engineers evaluate each customer’s particular application and can make accurate and dependable equipment recommendations.
