Frequently Asked Questions
Does the BridgRid equipment inside the bin spin?
No. BridgRid equipment uses an externally mounted rotor to activate an internal grid system to transmit vibrations evenly and consistently throughout the feed and bin structure. There are no spinning parts involved in the process. This is a completely external system that eliminates feed bridging and enhances feed flow.
Will the BridgRid system cause feed packing in my feed bins?
No. BridgRid’s automated vibrations keeps feed flowing 24/7. There’s no more feed packing or feed bridges after you’ve installed BridgRid equipment on your feed bins.
Will BridgRid equipment damage my feed bins?
No. When properly installed and used as intended, BridgRid equipment will not damage your feed bins.
Will a hole need to be cut in the feed bin during installation?
No. The BridgRid components are passed through the bottom discharge. Feed bins must be empty during installation.
