Used Bin Activators

JM industrial buys and sells used bin activators from Vibra Screw, Schenk and Matcon Buls manufacturers in various specifications. If you are currently interested in purchasing Unused Bin Activators, browse the list below that we currently have in stock. Bin activators are an important element of many manufacturing and process plants. They work by inducing vibration in a bin or silo, which in turn causes the material inside to flow out. The vibrations cause the material to flow either to another container or out the discharge spout. A bin activator thus helps dispense bulk solid materials from one container to another. These units are often used with other devices, such as screw conveyors or pneumatic conveying systems. JM Industrial stocks various types of used Storage Bins for sale. If you have any questions, please contact us.

What are the reasons to Choose Used Bin Activators for Your Applications?

Our used Metalfab bin activators, live bottom bin activators and Vibra screw bin activators are the perfect solution for discharging bulk solid materials from storage. Our mechanical bin activator units are simple to use and proven to perform. There are many reasons to choose used storage bin activators for your material handling applications. Some of the most important reasons are:

  • Affordable: One of the best things about used bin activators is that they’re affordable. You can get great quality equipment without spending a lot of money.
  • Save Time: New equipment can sometimes take a long time to be delivered, but used equipment is often available immediately.
  • High-quality: Just because something is used doesn’t mean it isn’t high quality. In fact, you can often find high-quality equipment at a fraction of the price of new equipment. All the equipment listed on this page are tested for their performance. So, you can be assured of the quality.
  • Variety: There is a greater variety of used bin activator for sale offered by us. This means that you can find the perfect piece of equipment for your needs, even if it’s an unusual or obsolete model.
  • Environmental Responsibility: Buying used equipment helps reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing new equipment

What Is Bulk Material Bridging and Ratholing? How It Can Be Prevented?

Our range of used industrial bin activators is a great way to improve the efficiency of your bulk material handling operations. They have been successfully used for moving materials across different areas of facility. Most users are driven by challenges like bridging and ratholing in the material handling industry. These challenges can be easily addressed using our used industrial bin activators. The following pointers will help you understand more about these challenges and how our equipment help avoid them at large.

  • Bridging: Bridging or arching terms are mainly used when interchangeably to describe an arch-shaped profile formed above the outlet of a storage container. This arch-shaped profile inhibits the flow of dry bulk solids. If this is not addressed immediately, this flow issue can cause long-term damage to the bin activator.
  • Ratholing: This occurs when bulk solids stick to the walls of the container. When there is an excess buildup, a thin passageway forms above the outlet or the feed auger. This is important to address this issue as lot of materials may get wasted during the process.

There are a few ways to alleviate these bulk material flow challenges. Using custom flow aids is one of the most effective ways to address bin flow issues. Fluidizing materials is another option to avoid aforementioned issues. You can use fluidizing pads on the silo cones and blast air into the hopper base.

What Are the Features of Bin Activators?

JM Industrial provides various models of used and surplus industrial bin activators with multiple innovative features. However, the following components are common to these models.

  • Baffle Plates: The baffle plate is located at center of the bin activator. The plate is conical shaped and attached to the equipment body using metal parts, which are made of steel. These plates can be availed in different configurations and angles such as 60°, 45°, 30°, and 15°. These plates induce vibrations in the material to ensure the smooth bulk material flow from the upstream equipment. There is a secondary deflector plate, which helps ease the weight of bulk material from the lower portion of the bin activator. The plate helps spread the weight in adjacent areas to the cone surface.
  • Polymer Seal and Suspensions: The vibrating bin discharger and the equipment above it feature a flexible connection made of polyester seal and spring suspension links. The polyester seal helps prevent the leakage or slipping of dry bulk material. Spring suspensions are installed external to the system and they can absorb the vibrations produced by the cone head. In short, these spring suspensions contain the vibrations in the cone itself and do not agitate the upstream equipment.
  • Flanges: The cone of the silo is designed short to fit the bin activator. This leaves lots of space on the sides of the outlet. This space is covered using a flange. The flange is bolted using a vibrating bin discharger.
  • Vibration Motors: The vibratory motor is mounted external to the bin activator. This motor creates a vibratory motion and causes the bin activator to vibrate. This ensures the flow of dry bulk materials in the system. A system may feature one or multiple vibratory motors.
