Reliably Discharge Materials from Your Hoppers & Silos

AZO’s vibration bottom (VB) systems reliably discharge powdery, crystalline, high-fat, and granular bulk materials from hoppers. Simple and sturdy, these systems are suitable for nearly all materials in the food and beverage, plastics, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries.

The Benefits You Can Expect

AZO's vibration bottom is designed for universal use — even in the case of problematic and flow-resistant materials. This versatility is combined with a number of other benefits:

  • Uniform fall of the product column (or material flow)
  • No rat-holing and bridging
  • Optimal emptying of hoppers without material buildup
  • Sized for small feeding hoppers to large storage silos

How AZO's Vibration Bottom Works

The vibration bottom is a discharge cone equipped with a laterally-mounted unbalanced vibrator. The vibrations are transmitted to the materials column through the relieving cone, which oscillates in the vibration bottom’s interior. This puts the material in motion, causing it to fall uniformly without core flow or bridging. The product reliably reaches the discharge through the ring gap around the inverted cone in the VB’s center. The intensity of the vibrations depends on the type of material and the required output. The VB is best utilized in conjunction with a dosing feed screw or similar feeding device.
