Thayer Scale now offers the Bridge Breaker® controller (BBC), a self-contained unit capable of operating a variety of flow aid devices (FADs) for the purpose of ensuring material flows freely through a hopper, bin or silo even at variable flow rates. The BBC:
- Can control various devices such as Thayer’s Bridge Breaker®, electric or pneumatic vibrators, air cannons, air pads, or combinations thereof.
- Finely controls the ON/OFF time of the FADs so that they are activated only when necessary.
- Tie (link) channels together, which allows cascading of the FADs to effectively and efficiently keep the material moving.
- Contains four separate channels with each channel capable of controlling up to two solenoid operated air valves, each of which can operate one or two Bridge Breaker® screens or other FADs.
