MSB series Modular Surge Bins from Novatec, Baltimore, come in capacities from 30 to 70 ft3 (850-1980 liters) and provide expandable material storage space for central conveying systems. The bins can be easily expanded with a 12-in. or 24-in.-high section to increase volume from 30 ft3 to 50 or 70 ft3. (Sizes are based on actual usable volume, not theoretical capacity based on air volume.)
MSB units are built of carbon steel with powder coating on interior and exterior surfaces and have 60° cone angles to accommodate materials with various flow characteristics. The bin accommodates a loader or receiver capacity up to 3 ft3. Standard features include a 4-in.-diam. sight glass and 1.25 NPT couplings for level sensing, along with a 9 x 12 in. inspection hatch. Discharge opening is 12 x 12 in. and discharge clearance is 20 in.
