Bindrill by Pneumat

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

A Fast & Reliable Solution to Remove Stubborn Buildup 

The BinDrill works with the Pneumat BinWhip to free material from bulk storage vessels. The BinDrill functions like a mobile oil- or well-drilling rig that’s operated from the top of the vessel. Sections are added as boring is completed for maximum efficiency. 

Drill flow channels with ease by utilizing the BinDrill alongside your BinWhip to finish off the job and get bulk products moving. Using hydraulic power units and controls, the BinDrill offers specially designed drill sections for each task and is capable of sampling and fumigating a product — cutting costs on additional machinery and equipment.

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

  • catalysts
  • cement
  • clay
  • clinke
  • coal
  • coarse ore
  • concentrate
  • coke
  • DDGs
  • feed
  • fertilizer
  • fly ash
  • hydrated lime
  • gravel
  • gypsum
  • minerals
  • paper pulp
  • pigments

  • powder
  • refuge
  • salt
  • sand
  • sawdust
  • slag
  • soda ash
  • soybean meal
  • talcum powder
  • wheat midds
  • wood chips
  • wood pulp

How BinDrill Works

See BinDrill in Action

Poking, hammering and air blasting is not the answer to bulk storage flow problems. Bindrill offers a safe and effective solution to breaking through bridged materials in bulk storage vessels. It’s a cost-effective, fast, and easy-to-use system that boosts production time and frees up employees to focus on their job.

Easy to Handle

BinDrill breaks down into easily-handled pieces, making set-up and movement from bin to bin quick and easy. We offer two models that fit a variety of applications. Drill down to 150’ or utilize proper mounting to drill from the bottom of the bin or silo.

Powered by Hydraulics

Precise, controlled, all-hydraulic power gives BinDrill the power to work its way through rock-hard materials. All you need is a 440 Volt 3-phase electrical hook-up for proper use. Together with the BinWhip, the BinDrill restores 100% vessel capacity and leaves freed material ready for use.

You’ve dealt with underpowered whips, drills, and flails in the past — leaving your operation suffering. Speed up progress and complete vessel cleanout with the help of our BinDrill system. 

We designed the patented BinDrill to work alongside our proprietary BinWhip to accelerate buildup removal and assist with stubborn material bridging. This hydraulic system was built with power in mind, drilling through rock-hard materials without slowing down.

Clearing bulk solids is a tough job. You can’t rely on hammering, poking, or air blasting to see results. When bridging occurs in your silos or bins, you need the power of the BinDrill to make it through. Don’t let your previous bin cleaning equipment get in the way of flow.

The BinDrill offers a unique and easily transportable design that drills right through the most challenging product bridging, allowing you to take back 100% of your facility’s storage capacity.
