Live Bin Bottoms – MU

MU Live Bin Bottoms are the ideal solution for discharging particularly difficult materials from polygonal hoppers or silos.

Live Bin Bottoms Multiple Screw Feeders

MU Live Bin Bottoms (Multiple Screw Feeders) are equipped with a modular trough which encloses up to 6 shafted helicoid flight or paddle screws, externally flanged, fully protected end bearing assemblies complete with manually adjustable packing gland and shaft seal, a rectangular outlet spout covering the entire width of the bin bottom, bolted end plates, splined shaft couplings for medium heavy-duty, and flanged shaft couplings for the heavy-duty version.

Furthermore, MU Live Bin Bottoms are equipped with one gear motor per screw shaft or, depending on the application, with a drive unit driving more screws.
