Powders pack down in a hopper or silo, and the finer the powder, the more difficult it is to remove.
Solimar fluidisers from Kockums Bulk Systems are an easy and cost effective solution to this problem.
They are found in hundreds of applications including difficult to handle products like cement, talcum powder, gypsum, flyash, titanium dioxide, calcium carbonate, carbon black, sugar and flours.
In most cases they are relatively easy to install and the problem is overcome in a couple of hours.
The latest release from Solimar makes the mounting even easier. The fluidiser is installed totally externally, from the underside of the cone.
A 50mm hole is cut in the hopper, and the fluidiser can be shaped to pass through the hole, with the use of a trailing lead to keep the fluidiser captive.
Silo fluidisers promote the discharge of dry products from storage silos, dust collectors, weigh bins and IBC’s.
Solimar fluidisers enable a uniform flow of most dry bulk materials through aeration and slight hopper wall vibration that helps prevent the common problems of bridging, rat holing and compacting.
A good installation will ensure a regular feed of powder for process work, particularly where a constant flow pattern is desired.
Kockums Bulk Systems can advise typical location patterns for the Solimars, related to the vessel dimensions and the characteristics of the powders.
