MU - Live Bin Bottoms


Project Description

Description - MU Live Bin Bottoms (Multiple Screw Feeders) are equipped with a modular trough which encloses up to 6 shafted helicoid flight or paddle screws, flanged external, fully protected end bearing assemblies complete with manually adjustable packing gland and shaft seal, a rectangular outlet spout covering the entire width of the unit, bolted end plates, splined shaft couplings for medium-heavy-duty, flanged shaft couplings for heavy-duty version. Furthermore, MU Live Bin Bottoms are equipped with one gear motor per screw shaft or, depending on the application, with a drive unit driving more screws.

Function - MU Live Bin Bottoms are used to discharge difficult materials from polygonal hoppers/silos. In particular they are used for the extraction of biological or industrial sludge, paper scrap, wood chippings, sawdust, flour or bran in flour milling.
