Bin Whipping

Bin Whipping Provides Blockage Removal With Less Downtime

At IA Bulk Materials, we offer bin whipping because it allows for a  safer experience for workers since it eliminates the need for enclosed space access. Bin Whipping is a popular and effective method to clean out vessels, silos, and bins. This process also ensures that no valuable assets are lost during the cleanout.

Proactively scheduled bin whipping services can ensure free-flowing bulk material without your company experiencing a detrimental blockage or potentially losing valuable company assets.

Bin Whipping has been a proven effective method on many different projects and jobs. However, this is just the tip of the iceberg for IA Bulk Materials. With our skillset and tools, we are more than just a bin-whip company. We are specialists in this tool, however, that is not where we stop. Our team can utilize a vast majority of tooling and methodologies to clear your blockage.

How Exactly Does Bin Whipping Work?

This popular cleaning solution lowers a bin whip down into the vessel, silo, or bin from a top opening. The bin whip is then operated remotely from the top of the vessel, silo, or bin that needs to be cleaned, from a safe distance for workers.

The bin whip is powered by compressed air or hydraulics, allowing various whips and cutting-edge motions to knock off stuck or built-up material. As the process continues, the worker operating the bin whip will carefully navigate through the entire structure to ensure that all built-up material is successfully broken free from the walls of the vessel, silo, or bin and flow is back to normal. Despite the bin whip’s ability to power through caked-on material, the whip itself is made of material that will not compromise or damage the walls of the vessel, silo, or bin.

Why Bin Whipping Is A Good Solution

Effective for a Vast Product Range

It has been proven that this method can restore bin capacity to 100%. That means minimal amounts of your company’s assets are lost. On top of that, this method is efficient and compatible with bins of all shapes and sizes that carry all different products.


We know that cost is an important factor when making decisions for your company. Bin whipping offers a quick and cost-effective method to clean any bin, silo, or storage vessel you have while maintaining overall effectiveness. We minimize time on-site so your company can get back to production as usual.


Safety is important for our workers, your workers, and your facility. Bin whipping can handle difficult or dangerous highly compacted materials from a safe distance. Bin whipping is operated from outside of the bin to minimize accidents.

What Can Bin Whipping Do For You?

The most common issue facilities seem to face is a general material buildup. This could occur due to moisture, time, or inadequate flow of materials. But, that’s not the only thing that bin whipping can solve. A few other issues you may encounter are:

  • Bridging — when there is an arch just above the exit hole, preventing flow
  • Ratholing when material clings to the wall creating a hole in the middle of the bin/silo, minimizing flow.
  • Smolder — if materials don’t move effectively, they can collect heat in stagnant materials, potentially leading to mold or excess moisture.
  • Plugging — occurs when the exit hole is completely blocked with the material.
  • Caking
  • Wall Build Up
  • Doming
