Pneumatic Silo Whip Series PWA

Pneumatic Whips For Bin & Silo Clearing


A whip for bins and silos key function is to maximize the productivity of your storage vessels by keeping them as free-flowing as possible, through the use of pneumatic and hydraulic “whips” that clear out material build-up within storage vessels, all while remaining a relatively portable piece of equipment.

Force Vector is a sister company to Deca Vibrator, providing complementary products and services to our material handling equipment solutions. 

Keeping dry material in silos, storage bins, and hoppers flowing freely is essential for sustaining optimal plant productivity, and Force Vector Inc.’s pneumatic and hydraulic powered whips are the safest, most effective solution for maintaining continuously operating process streams. Able to eliminate build-ups of any dry media including grain, flour, salt, sugar, coal, ores, and cement powder, our whip systems successfully clear build ups, restore maximum flow rates, and recover lost storage capacity.

The portable devices are lowered in from the top of the silo and operated remotely — cleared material simply falls to the base of the silo for easy extraction by normal means. Safe to use, there is no need for an operator to enter into a potentially dangerous confined space and there is no risk of vessel damage. Our whip systems feature a boom reach of 7′ to 21′ and are suitable for use in containers measuring up to 150′ in depth — all that’s required is an 18″ x 18″ access way to drop and maneuver the positioning booms and cutting tools.

We supply the units as a complete package including hose reel and mount assembly, power unit, cleaning head, telescoping booms, and a variety of whips and cutting edges to knock down even the toughest materials. Our turnkey systems are cost effective, reliable, and can be used in active process streams and in hazardous and sensitive locations.
