If your product has a tendancy to bridge, rat hole or just get hung up in hoppers, silos, bins or bulk bags, we have news for you! Introducing the brand new Young Industries' Stinger Product Feeder. This remarkable technology is quickly changing the way products are handled and will likely have an application in your plant, too. Pictured above is a Stinger discharging titanium dioxide. Notice how it flows out of this nozzle like water from a spout and with no electrical requirements! The Stinger is operated purely by means of plant air or nitrogen. See the brochure, here, under "technical details."

For several years, Young has been developing the concept of TransFlow. This remarkable permeable membrane allows air or nitrogen in to fluidize the difficult to move products such as Titanium Dioxide, Diatomaceous Earth, Carbon Black, Iron Oxide, Powdered Resins, Lime, Calcium Carbonate, coatings and pigments of all types. If you have a fine powdered product, then the Stinger could very well be the answer.

What's even more remarkable about the Stinger is its ability to precisely and accurately measure out these powders with repeatable results. This is done by using air controls only and this unit requires absolutely no electricity which makes it portable and versatile.

Shown, right, is the new Stinger for quick and easy bulk bag unloading.

How it works:

  • The bulk bag is moved into place and connected to the Stinger unit.
  • The operator, when ready to fill the process vessel turns on the Stinger unloader air control valve and the material is automatically metered into the mixer.
  • The operator can start, stop or change the flow rate of the discharging material at any time during the process.
  • The unique design of the Stinger unloader makes the discharge of products trouble-free without the use of hard-to-use flow aids. The Stinger elminates feed screws, vibrators, and other high maintenance devices.



Model No. Metering Capacity
4 x 1.5 32 to 3200 lbs/hr (16 to 1600 kg/hr)
4 x 2 60 to 6000 lbs/hr (27 to 2700 kg/hr)
6 x 3 150 to 15000 lbs/hr (68 to 6800 kg/hr)
6 x 4 250 to 25000 lbs/hr (112 to 11200 kg/hr)
The Stinger Feeder easily adapts to converting your existing bins and hoppers from the use of high maintenance mechanical devices. It removes all existing moving parts from your product stream, improves flowability, eliminates binding, rat holing and plugging.


Complete product testing facilities are available at Young Industries in Muncy, PA. Tests are conducted on your materials by trained bulk handling engineers and technicians. You are welcome to view the demonstration of equipment at work on your own product.

Other Young Industries' bulk materials handling equipment is available to analyze your pneumatic conveying, mixing, blending, size reduction, size classification and air quality problems.
