Dual Impact BinWhip

The powerfully effective Dual Impact BinWhip solved the issues that stem from caking, bridging, doming, funneling, ratholing, or plugging in bins, bunkers, and storage silos.

Bindrill Bridge Breaker
BinDrill

Lighter and more easily transported than competing systems, the Pneumat BinDrill works like a portable drilling rig to create flow channels or create an opening in bridged product through which the BinWhip can enter.

Cardox Tube Assembly
Cardox CO2 Blaster

Our trailblazing improvements to the Cardox CO2 Blasting System simplified tube refills for everyone, eliminating the need for on-site refrigeration units and preventing the misfires that plague competing products.

Railcar Hopper Loading Spreader Disk
RailSpreader

When approached by bulk rail shippers struggling to fully load their hopper cars, we invented an automated railcar loading system to boost loaded fill weights while eliminating hazardous manual labor.

Hopperpopper Air Blaster Unloader
HopperPopper

The same solution-driven approach inspired the creation of our rapid truck hopper unloading system that uses precise blasts of air to dislodge sticky hung-up material like dried distiller's grains (DDGs) or soybean meal.

Hopperbot Railcar Unloader
HopperBot

Our amazing new HopperBot Intelligent Railcar Unloading System can be installed in less than 25 feet of overhead space, allowing facilities to rapidly unload meals, DDGs, and other challenging products without exposing workers to endless pounding, prodding, and other unsafe conditions.
