Even in today’s age of highly automated process industries, one of the biggest problems encountered is the removal of bulk solids from storage bins or hoppers. The inability to achieve a consistent flow of material from a storage bin at desired discharge rates is most likely due to the bridging of the material within the bin.
Bridging, or arch effect, is usually due to any one or a combination of three prime factors – the physical characteristics of a given material, bin size and/or configuration, and environmental effects.
The Thayer Bridge Breaker flow aid is designed to overcome these factors and assure reliable discharging of materials which have a tendency to bridge, cake, flush or otherwise obstruct free and consistent flow.
