SilentFlow Discharger

SilentFlow Discharger

The SilentFlow Bin Discharger consists of a hopper cone with the interior fully lined with TransFlow® aeration media. This media uniformly distributes and controls low-pressure air or gas and fluidizes the stored powder product. The media top surface also produces an evenly distributed bed of air that significantly reduces the coefficient of friction between your bulk material and the cone surface.

The material is conditioned by the TransFlow® media. The fluidizing air or gas homogenizes with the bulk material changing the response of the solid to the response of a liquid. This results in a positive flow of the stored material.

Application Information

SilentFlow Bin Dischargers are used to solve the problem of handling and discharging difficult flowing bulk materials. Bulk materials that are cohesive but fluidizable, like white pigments, carbon black and calcium stearate can be reliably and effectively discharged into your process.


SilentFlow Bin Dischargers can be furnished as part of the bin or silo and can be supplied for new or existing storage vessels. Cone angles of 60°, 45°, 30°, as well as special designs, can be supplied to match your requirements.

Standard Features
  • Reliable and effective material flow. SilentFlow Bin Dischargers are used for difficult application like pigments and other cohesive materials
  • Higher flow rates out of your existing hoppers and silos
  • Reduced maintenance cost with the long lasting, durable, corrosion resistant, oxidation resistant, high temperature resistant and abrasion resistance media.
  • Reduced maintenance cost because SilentFlow Bin Dischargers have no moving parts
  • Reduced downtime because SilentFlow Bin Dischargers are easily cleaned.
  • Reduce operation cost because TransFlow® Bin Dischargers use less low-pressure compressed air or gas

Media & Case Studies

TEST: Iron Oxide with TransFlow®

Young Industries TransFlow® powder fluidization hopper is used to easily discharge fine iron oxide powder.

WarningSome machines in this section are shown with guards or covers removed for the purpose of illustration. Machines must not be operated with guards, covers, or other protective devices removed or disabled.

INTRO: TransFlow® Technology

Young Industries offers TransFlow® Powder Fluidization for hoppers, bins and most any place the fine powder can build-up. This video discusses the design and application of TransFlow® powder fluidization.

DEMO: TransFlow® Aeration Pads

A poorly designed pyramid hopper is fitted with TransFlow® Powder fluidization Pads demonstrating the effect fluidization has on the fine powder.

DEMO: TransFlow® Test Hopper

Young Industries has a TransFlow® powder fluidization hopper available for in-plant testing of fine powders. This video show how the hopper is assembled and demonstrates how it works to discharge fine powders.

SafetyFlow® Grate Fluidizes Powders

Protection of operators is essential. The SafetyFlow Grating fluidizes powder to flow through the grating with bars spaced so the operator cannot get hands into operating equipment.

INTRO: PowderFlow® Butterfly Valve

Demonstration of Young Industries PowderFlow Butterfly Valve and how the Patented Fluidization disc conditions fine powders to flow easily.
