A properly designed bin and hopper results in savings through better flow-rate control, larger live-storage capacity, and improved uniformity of withdrawn materials.

Using flow-corrective inserts can sometimes cause proper flow without costly basic design changes. The proper placement and the limitations of these inserts are discussed in this paper.
