The Coal Research Association began a research project to investigate the performance of a variety of devices claimed to induce a continuous flow of slack coal from bunkers. The most effective arrangement, was a nest of vertical rods (1/4 in steel) where the outer contour of the rods matched the discharge opening, and where the bottom of the rods was just above the opening. The effect was increased when the vibration was a vertical, oscillating motion.
