BHS Metering Bin

The new BHS Metering Bin and Metering Bin Liberator Class provide numerous features that increase performance and decrease maintenance requirements. BHS has developed a strong platform to precisely regulate material flow through the combination of a variable speed conveyor and a counter-rotating drum at the discharge end, eliminating black-belt and keeping your system operating at peak levels. The new design’s hallmark is its modularity: the design allows a wide range of mix-and match features which can transform the Metering Bin to match your own operational demands. From base features such as extra thick walls to the steel belt and bag-ripping teeth of the Liberator Class, BHS offers a bin without equal in the market.
