Different types of chip bins include live bottom hopper chip bins, Jesco chip and waste trucks, the Peerless Manufacturing 14-unit bin, the Western Pneumatics Airklock bin and the Winston Machinery live floor bin. Cecor manufactures wheeled chip bins. Fabrication shops may also manufacture custom chip bins to order. Customers can locate used shavings bagger bins of various designs and capacities through LPS Equipment & Acquisition Co.
Live bottom hopper chip bins are freestanding units that have conveyor belt floors that allow the machines to feed the chips into other containers. These bins attach to other hoppers, bagging units or storage bins. Jesco manufactures wheeled chip bins that have a dumping feature; these bins are compact enough for confined spaces and are made from 14-gauge steel. The company also manufactures custom-ordered chip bins and low-profile tilt trucks.
Peerless manufactures large freestanding chip bins for truck unloading purposes. The 24-unit model has hydraulically powered doors and can hold over 4,000 cubic feet of material. Peerless bins can be combined to form larger storage systems for lumber by-products. Catwalks and ladders connect these structures for access purposes, and the units can be equipped with Clear Vue Cyclone dust collection modules. Users can also customize Peerless bins with hydraulic loading features.
Cecor makes wheeled heavy-duty bins designed for use in industrial or manufacturing environments. A forklift or hook hoist can lift the bins, and they are rated to carry 500 pounds of material. The manufacturer can equip them with drain plugs, drain covers and dumping frames. Cecor bins can turn and fit in narrow spaces and confined areas.
