A standard Bin Activator is hung from a matching flange on the silo. An internal baffle or cone is fixed inside the bin activator and the unit is connected with a high performance rubber sleeve. This allows the bin activator to move freely in an elliptical action. Through the bin activator’s stationary cone, vibration is imparted vertically, into the material in the silo, thereby consistently promoting material flow.
Some of the most common discharge problems in dry material storage are rat-holing, bridging, degradation, and segregation. A bin activator solves this by transmitting vibration to the material and allowing mass flow.
The Bin Activator that CMT offers has many advantages
The Soliflo Cone Valve Bin Discharger is bolted directly to the silo, thereby eliminating any potential leak points. The unit works as a bin activator and valve as it completely stops material flow when lowered, providing two functions in one simplistic design: Bin Activator and Shut-Off Valve.
An internal pneumatic probe is fitted within the structure of the Cone Valve Discharger. The Cone Volve Discharger has no moving parts. An air actuated Firestone bellow is filled to raise and lower the internal cone, thereby overcoming bridging and consistently promoting material flow.
