Horizontal Rotary Extension Includes Extended Drive Shaft
BinMaster Level Controls' horizontal rotary extension provides the ability to install a rotary through the side of a bin wall, such as those in concrete silos, up to 12 inches thick. This rotary extension design allows for rotaries to be side-mounted with minimal risk of damage during operations. This optional assembly includes an extended drive shaft with a protective shaft guard that keeps the shaft centered and BinMaster's "no packing" seal at the end of the shaft. Standard lengths of 6 inches, 8 inches, 10 inches or 12 inches are available for both the Maxima+ or BMRX rotaries.
When fitted with BinMaster's collapsible paddles, the rotary can be installed through an existing 1.25-inch or 1.5-inch opening, so there is no need to enter the bin to install or remove the rotary. Plus, the horizontally extended rotary design features a unique protective bearing at the end of the shaft extension that forms a seal between the rotary shaft and the shaft guard. This bearing prevents bin material from getting packed up into the extension and causing the rotary to give a false "full" signal when the paddle stops turning.
