Rotary dischargers are highly suitable for the discharging of powders or granules with poor flow characteristics from bins and silos. They can also be used to provide regular feed to processing machines or weighing hoppers.
The structure consists of a fully enclosed cylindrical steel housing with a flange for securing the discharger to the bin outlet. The motor reducer, which is attached to the base with a flange and drives the rotor, is fitted with specially shaped blades. An electro-pneumatically operated discharge slide is provided for products with a tendency to discharge in an uncontrolled manner.
Bucket elevators are very efficient equipment for the continuous, vertical, dust-free transport of granulated and powdered bulk goods and derivates, such as those processed in the animal feed and food industries.
