So, you’re asking yourself “is a JACKY® Bin going to be a good option for transporting and handling my goods?” And “can they hold and dispense absolutely anything? Or are there some products that simply don’t flow well from a standard JACKY® Bin?”
These are great questions, and they’re really important questions too because a JACKY® bin is a long-lived investment, and you want to make sure it’s going to do everything you need it to do before you part with your brass.
Let’s start by having a quick look at what a standard JACKY® is designed to do, then we’ll go into more detail about which products do and don’t flow well from these bins.
What are JACKY® Bins designed to do?
The JACKY® range has been developed by practical people for practical people - our products are designed to meet your everyday storage and handling needs, minimize risks, and maximize efficiency when it comes to dealing with a wide range of dry granular goods.
The shape of the bin facilitates an even and simple discharge of the contents: the smooth internal surfaces and steep run slopes encourage the even flow of product. And because there are few internal ledges, the bin can be 100% evacuated and easily cleaned.
Each JACKY is supplied with a 300mm discharge chute to minimize wastage and make dispensing product just that much easier.
To minimize the risks associated with lifting bulk dry goods, each JACKY® bin is mounted inside a galvanized, forkliftable frame. This allows for the safe storage and handling of the bin by one person.
JACKY® bins have been specifically designed for handling a large range of regular shaped dry and granular products in a wide variety of industries – here’s some examples…..
While JACKY® bins have become an integral part of goods handling across a huge range of industries, there are some things that they simply don’t work for.
The discharge outlet is a fixed size, with the biggest standard outlet size being 300x250mm, so obviously items larger than this simply won’t fit through.
Also, even though the base of the bin has a 40°run slope, a product that ‘clumps together’, is damp or is very light will NOT dispense well from a JACKY® bin.
Yes. Your JACKY® bin will be supplied with a lid unless otherwise noted making it weather resistant and protecting the contents from external contamination.
Yes. You can order your bins with serial numbering and/or custom branding to make tracking and easier. Please contact the team to discuss options and pricing for this.
The standard JACKY® range is rotomoulded using faint green translucent polymer, which means that you can see the level of the product through the wall of the bin. Of course, you can always lid the lid to look inside too, if you want to be 100% certain!
The price of your bin will depend on the size of the unit you require. But as a general guide, for a bin that will hold approximately 1 tonne of most products, you can reasonably expect to pay somewhere in the order of $3200 - $4200, including GST*. This is pricing includes the poly hopper bin, galvanized steel frame, discharge chute and lid.
