Passive Product Spreader

Pebco Passive Product Spreader
Pebco Passive Product Spreader

The patent-pending Passive Product Spreader is located at the discharge point of a material handling chute or spout, redirecting incoming material, thereby providing broad distribution of the material into railcars, trailers, barges, and ships. 

The Passive Product Spreader makes no use of motors, impellers, etc., but takes advantage of the velocity of material already in freefall. The material, having fallen from some substantial distance vertically above the spreader, initially impacts the cone moving parallel to the axis about which the defining profile is revolved. As the particles that are in direct contact with the spreader move down the curved surface, they are quickly redirected in a horizontal plane and radially away from the centerline of the device.

This spreader is ideal for dry bulk solid materials of a particulate or granular nature or otherwise comprised of relatively small individual particles.
