Innovative Automated Bin Filling System

Check out our latest solution to load difficult flowing materials in a bin evenly. Material with a poor flow pattern will build up underneath an outlet resulting in a conical stack and as a result of that a reduction of live storage.

SPIRAC has developed a unique solution to load a bin evenly by moving the outlet with the guiding support of a photoelectric 3D level sensor. The sensor detects the material within the storage area and determines the level. The measuring segments of the sensor are shaped to the bin. Various bin shapes, hoppers and silos can be recognised by the sensor. The sensor can detect the average level for bulk materials, even if there are conical stacks. The conveyor discharge follows a serpentine path with constant velocity to evenly distribute the material until an average level is achieved across the entire bin. The conveyor tracking is achieved by means of linear and rotary motion.
