Material Flow Aid for Coal Bunkers 

Coal bunker flow aids are key to keeping a mining operation or a power plant running smoothly and profitably. Without the right solutions, coal processing operations face inefficiencies and potential downtime resulting from clogging and uneven flow in their bunkers. Breaks in production to manually clear out containers can also result in safety hazards for employees.

At Deca Vibrator Industries, Inc., we offer several solutions for coal processing that increase efficiency by promoting smooth material flow. The strategic use of this equipment in coal bunkers and other flow system areas helps to eliminate material blockages caused by bridging, clinging and arching.

Types of Equipment for Coal Bunker Flow Problems

Because coal has a high cohesive strength, it’s often prone to ratholes during discharge in a bunker. Problems like these lead to erratic and inconsistent flow. Air-slide flow aids and electric vibrators offer solutions to ensure optimal production. 

Air-Slide Flow Aid Solutions

We offer several air-slide flow aid solutions for coal bunkers that help streamline flow in the harshest and most severe applications. This equipment maintains optimal flow by eliminating blockages, arching, ratholes and sticky buildup.

Place these units strategically throughout your container to provide the necessary blasts of air to keep material flowing in a downward direction.

Series Explosion-Proof Electric Vibrators

Explosion-proof vibrators are ideal for areas where flammable dust particles or chemical fumes create potentially hazardous environments. These devices help prevent material bridging and clogging while ensuring that coal storage bins clear out with quiet, energy-efficient performance. They meet standards set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and they comply with Class I, Division 1 and Class II, Division 1 performance requirements.

Besides coal processing, this equipment works well as a flow aid for other bulk material handling applications. Some examples include quarry materials, oil and gas operations, and fertilizer processing.
