Rotary dischargers are highly suitable for the discharging of powders or granules with poor flow characteristics from bins and silos. They can also be used to provide regular feed to processing machines or weighing hoppers.
The structure consists of a fully enclosed cylindrical steel housing with a flange for securing the discharger to the bin outlet. The motor reducer, which is attached to the base with a flange and drives the rotor, is fitted with specially shaped blades. An electro-pneumatically operated discharge slide is provided for products with a tendency to discharge in an uncontrolled manner.
Raiffeisen Vital Mischfutter, located in Hamm/Germany, built a feed mill for the production of cattle and pig feed. The conventional compound feed plant has a production capacity of 100.000 tonnes of feed per year.
