A French rate bin, also called a recycle bin, receives whole seeds from the drum magnet and cleaner. The bin provides a steady and homogeneous flow of feed material to the full press extraction process and allows for continued operation of the downstream process machinery in the event of a temporary loss of incoming oilseed or a temporary shutdown of the upstream equipment. In addition, the rate receives feed overflow from the conditioner feed conveyor(s). French rate bins include a fabricated hopper with a variable speed discharge screw conveyor.
