New Dual Impact BinWhip

Dual Impact Technology

Pneumat’s new Dual Impact whip head utilizes two sets of whips turning in opposite directions simultaneously. This multi-directional design allows the unit to power through the toughest hang-ups in a fraction of the time, providing double the impact power. In addition, the counter rotational forces keep the unit in the target zone, maximizing bin cleaning efforts, increasing overall effectiveness and providing improved operator control.

  • Whipsets turn in opposite directions
  • Dual impact power
  • Stays in the target zone
  • Cleans bins faster than ever before

Patented Design, Durable Construction

The advanced patented design of the new Dual Impact whip head provides the ability to hit harder without twisting the hose.

The system’s specially engineered gearbox allows for the full transfer of power from the hydraulic power unit to the rotating whips. Each Dual Impact BinWhip is backed by extensive field-testing and the most knowledgeable service technicians in the industry.

Improved Productivity & Efficiency

The Dual Impact BinWhip not only delivers unmatched cleaning power, it provides a level of productivity and efficiency never seen before in the bulk solids industry.

The high efficiency output of the Dual Impact BinWhip cleans and clears bins faster than ever before. The new design powers through all types of materials, especially hard material like cement and ddgs. The counter rotational Whipsets allow the unit to tackle changes in product density, including difficult “ledge” formations within the bin with ease.

That Means Fewer Man-Hours and More Product Moving!

See Dual Impact BinWhip in Action

The BinWhip is powered by hydraulics, which means there is more power, better control, and less expense. Hydraulic cleaning heads deliver tremendous power, yet are safe, easy to control, and won’t damage vessel walls.

Safe, No Bin Entry

BinWhip bin cleanout.The BinWhip works from the top of the vessel, which eliminates the need for dangerous, confined space entry by employees.

Dual Impact BinWhip Applications

Binwhip Plugging

PLUGGING

Combined with Pneumat’s BinDrill, plugged bins can be cleared effectively and safely

Binwhip Ratholing

RATHOLING

BinWhip makes quick work of eliminating ratholes from silos and frees up dead nonflowing material.

Binwhip Bridging

BRIDGING

When material is broken but bridges above the vessel opening, BinWhip and BinDrill will make the material flow.

Binwhip Build Up

BUILD-UP

When material hangs up on the sides of the bin, BinWhip knocks material away from the walls, restoring the vessel to full capacity.

Frequently Asked Questions

Hydraulic power is much more powerful in terms of torque and hitting power – at all speeds. It doesn’t bog down at low speeds. Full hitting torque is available at slower controllable speeds to keep the whips in the product with the power to knock things loose.

Air is compressible so it depends on high speed to generate hitting power, which makes controlling the cleaning head difficult. If not operated properly an air whip will spend much of it’s time in mid-air not doing any work. And when an air whip does hit product it slows down, especially in tough material.

Hydraulic powered whip rotation is reversible. This is very desirable, as the whiphead will pull one direction depending on rotation direction. Changing rotation to guide the whip into a tough corner or to expand a cut to the wall, or if a temp cable happens to become entangled, reversing rotation can back off the hydraulic powered whip. Not possible with an air powered whip.

ONE simple power source is all that is needed – electricity. NO air compressor to rent or buy. NO high air consumption tying up plant air systems for other functions in the plant. Other air powered units need both electrical AND air power sources to operate.

Air powered whips, exhaust high volumes of compressed-air into the bin that creates even more dust as material is worked loose.

Hydraulically power units have a lower rate of whip wear. Air powered units rely on high speeds to generate power which creates higher amounts of friction, heat and wear on the whips. The ability to  operate hydraulic powered whips at slower speeds increases whip life up to 4 times.

All hydraulic fluid used in our hydraulic powered equipment is food grade so IF a spill should occur, no hazardous material is released. Air motors need lubrication to operate, so as a result they are continually exhausting oil during normal operation.
