Day Bin / Storage Unloading

When it comes to unloading dry, free flowing material from bulk storage bins a Dense Phase Pneumatic Conveying System delivers material from point A to B with less maintenance, lower operational costs, and less wasted energy then other forms of material conveying.  Bulk materials necessary for plant production are often stored in material storage bins also known as Day Bins.  From the Day Bins the material is conveyed for use in a facilities manufacturing or production.  A conveying system with low material velocity and minimal moving parts will help to minimize downtime, and reduce overall maintenance costs.

JDB Dense Phase Storage Bin Unloading

JDB Dense Flow Dense Phase Pneumatic Day Bin Unloading systems require minimal moving parts for operation (only one moving part for most applications).  By minimizing the moving parts throughout the conveying system there are fewer points for failure, making JDB Dense Phase systems reliable even when conveying highly abrasive materials.  Every JDB Dense Phase Storage Unloading system features an advanced air delivery system that maintains the conveying systems optimal conveying pressure insuring low material velocities and minimal wasted energy.  Unlike many competitors air control systems, the Dense Flow Advanced Air Delivery system does not require air boosters along the convey pipeline.  Air boosters have been known to increase material velocity and add wear points along the convey pipeline which can increase maintenance costs and system downtime.

JDB Storage Bin Unloading Components

The Dense Flow Components engineered for use in every JDB Dense Phase system feature proven designs that aid in minimizing system downtime and overall maintenance costs.  

Cone Valve

The Dense Flow Cone Valve is used to fill, vent, and seal the pressure vessel in a JDB Dense Phase system, and when combined with the Dense Flow Charging Hopper assembly it is the only moving part throughout the entire conveying system.  Many Dense Phase competitors systems require 3 or more valves to perform the same job as a single Dense Flow Cone Valve.

Pocket Elbow

Dense Flow pipeline components like the Pocket Elbow are designed to outlast all others, particularly when abrasive materials are being conveyed.  When material is being conveyed through a Dense Flow Pocket Elbow, the initial material is trapped in a “pocket” at the elbows deflection point.  The trapped material then acts as a barrier to any remaining material being conveyed, which greatly increases the lifespan of the elbow.

Compact Bin Vent


Dense Flow Compact Bin Vents come in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit the dust collection needs of virtually any application.  Every unit features a minimum three cartridge design with an air pulse cleaning system, and filter cartridges with wide pleat spacing.  These features result in better cartridge cleaning and longer cartridge lifespan.
