Dosing bin

Dosing bin is a small silo with conical shape suitable to store bulk materials. They can generally have a nominal capacity from 0.5 m³ up to 5 m³ and are used in the dosing of materials in several applications such as the loading of process machines (boiler, pellet and briquette production machines, etc.). The levels inside the silo are managed through suitable sensors, thus ensuring a constant and controlled supply of the material to the downstream process machines. In the design phase, it is studied proper solutions based on the customer’s needs, such as the possibility of using the same machine to feed two or more process lines. Usually in the coupling with the upstream and downstream equipment, a star valve is interposed with the function of decoupling the volumes preceding and following the dispenser. Finally, each machine has an internal extraction system designed according to the material flow-rate request of the downstream machines.
