Silo Bridging Solution:
Bores Through Any Material, Gets Bulk Products Moving

The BinDrill works with the Pneumat BinWhip to free material from bulk storage vessels. Operated from the top of the vessel, the BinDrill functions like a mobile oil- or well-drilling rig–sections are added as the boring is completed. When the BinDrill has drilled a flow channel, the BinWhip is lowered through the opening to finish the job. Both pieces of equipment use the same hydraulic power unit and controls. With the addition of specially designed drill sections for each task, the BinDrill is also capable of sampling and fumigating a product.

The BinDrill is effective on virtually any bulk material, including:

  • catalysts
  • cement
  • clay
  • clinke
  • coal
  • coarse ore
  • concentrate
