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.
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.
Performance & Technical Features - Benefits:• Robust design• Screw diameters: 150mm (6") - 600mm (24")• Up to six screws in one trough• Open trough length ranging from 1,500mm (5 ft) to 4,000mm (13 ft)• Trough casing and screws are manufactured in carbon steel, stainless steel or SINT® engineering polymer (screws only)• For certain applications screws and trough lining manufactured in SINT® engineering polymers• Medium-heavy-duty or extra-heavy-duty helicoid flight screws or paddle screws• Medium-heavy-duty or extra-heavy-duty trough in modular flanged sections• Vertical outlet spout with rectangular cross section or open trough flush outlet both with integrated drilled flanges according to WAM® standards• Robust cast iron body flanged end bearing assemblies with externally positioned bearing units and manually adjustable packed gland seals• Splined shaft couplings (medium-heavy-duty); flanged shaft couplings (extra-heavy-duty)• Independent direct compact gear motor drive for each screw• Promotes mass flow• Gives widest possible material extraction surface• Avoids bridging• Avoids segregation• Provides constant material extraction and feeding even with most difficult materials• Constant feed rates• Modular design allows easy access and individual custom-design features• High degree of self-cleaning
