A properly designed bin and hopper results in savings through better flow-rate control, larger live-storage capacity, and improved uniformity of withdrawn materials. Unfortunately, most bins are not designed for proper flow. Changes in the basic design of existing bins are difficult to justify economically. Using flow-corrective inserts can sometimes cause proper flow without costly basic design changes. The proper placement and the limitations of these inserts are discussed in this paper.
