Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1028071A2] The container has a discharge aperture (13) closed by a valve, and a vibrator (30). A ventilation body (32) extends mainly from the discharge towards the ceiling (11) of the container (10), at least to the max. contents level (A). It is moved by a drive connected to the vibrator, to form a channel within the contents to ventilate the hollow space (H) above the bulk goods (S) in the container. The ventilation body is elastic, has a smooth surface, and is positioned centrally in the container.
