Kockums Bulk Systems has developed a highly efficient discharge system specifically for the controlled release of powdered materials from silos. The device can be fitted to new or old silos and is guaranteed to improve the discharge of powdered products. It is easily automated and controlled to provide a steady regular flow of powder every time the discharge system is used. It is virtually maintenance free and directly begins feeding product on start up.
The discharge system works by means of the introduction of small compressed air pulses generated by a completely pneumatic pulsator.
A panel activator receives the pulsating air and injects it into the powdered substance. The air pulses are delicately scattered so that it creates a slip surface over the entire surface of the panel activator ensuring particle flow is efficiently initiated and sustained.
