The patented Sodimate silo unloader features a vertical spindle fitted with flexible blades to ensure the mechanical discharge of dry solid materials from silos, rigid bins, and hoppers. The unloader rotates within the container bottom to prevent non-flowing material from jamming, bridging, compacting, or ratholing, as often seen with vibration and fluidization systems. The system can also integrate up to four precise volumetric screw feeders. Each screw feeder is completely independent and can feed up to 15,000 lb/hr with different lengths and feed rates. Easy to mount, the unloader has proven its efficiency among retrofits and new installations in many industrial environments.
