Silo Discharge System


silo dischargerProChem rugged-duty Vibrating Bin Dischargers are designed to produce positive and uninterrupted flow (discharge) of dry solid materials from a storage hopper into an ProChem feeder on a first-in/first-out basis without product compaction, degradation, or attrition. Vibration is produced by a heavy-duty, totally enclosed, permanently lubricated, adjustable motor-driven vibrator

The vibration bottom is set in horizontal circular vibrations by the laterally mounted unbalance vibrator. The vibrations are transmitted to the materials column via the relieving cone which is oscillating in the interior of the vibration bottom. Thus the material is put in motion falling uniformly without core flow or bridging. The product reliably reaches the discharge through the ring gap. The intensity of the vibrations, which depends on the type of material and the required output, can be set at the unbalance vibrator.


Standard Construction

  • Vibrating Bin Dischargers are available in 18, 26 and 32 inch diameters
  • Storage Hoppers range in capacity from 3 to 60 cubic feet
  • Totally enclosed, permanently lubricated adjustable motor driven vibrator (silent in operation)


Options available includes

  • Various materials of construction
  • Available with integral Storage Hoppers and feeders as complete assemblies
  • Sanitary construction to meet USDA and FDA codes


Features and benefits of the Silo Discharge system are

  • Vibrating Bin Dischargers – are factory mounted onto the selected size storage hopper and connected to it with a specially designed reinforced flexible sleeve with stainless steel clamps
  • Suspension Rods with Vibration Isolators – are specifically designed to virtually eliminate the transfer of vibration from the Vibrating Bin Discharger to its integral storage hopper and support structure
  • An Internal Baffle – is rigidly mounted inside the Vibrating Bin Discharger to prevent compaction at the outlet and to further ensure positive material discharge
  • All Steel Construction – provides long-term reliability with minimal maintenance requirements


Advantages of Prochem's Silo Discharge systems include

  • Simple and sturdy design
  • Reliable discharge
  • For universal use
  • Uniform fall of the product column (materials flow)
  • No stacking and bridging
  • Also suitable for problematic and flow-resistant materials
  • Optimum emptying of hoppers, without residues


It can be used for discharge of powdery, crystalline, high-fat and granular bulk materials from hoppers.

Industries that it can be used in

  • Food
  • Plastic
  • Chemical
  • Pharmaceutical Industry
