Technical Data Sheet 8009 - Hopper Discharge Aids

Not all materials flow freely from a hopper, storage silo, bin, or other container. Their flow characteristics largely depend on the degree of coarseness in their particle shape and the amount of moisture or semi solid matter in their content. Different solutions to assisting material flow are required as the type of flow aid which may work with one material may not necessarily suit another, or even another grade of the same material. For these reasons, Spiroflow offers a wide selection of flow promoters to suit the characteristics of various materials.
