Bin Activators

The Pittsburgh Tank Bin Activator is designed and manufactured as one of the most effective ways to discharge dry materials on a first-in first-out principal and is critical in minimizing the chances of product clogging or inconsistent feeding. 


Our Bin Activator is engineered to efficiently promote the flow of a product by transmitting vibrations high into the storage area to keep materials flowing evenly, thereby preventing bridging, rat holing, jamming, segregation, and many other maladies associated with bulk storage. Farther down in the discharge area, it keeps the material from compacting and plugging as typically seen in a conventional silo by relieving the head pressure through utilization of an inverted cone. 

Material Flow

Pittsburgh Tank Bin Activators allow material to flow under the head from the outer portion of the tank, while also allowing the “core” or center of the material to flow over it and into the discharge. 


Each bin activator is designed and manufactured to be an extremely functional, economical, and virtually maintenance free method of keeping a variety of materials flowing for many years of service.
