SEPTEMBER 2012: EXTRACTION, CONVEYING AND DOSING SYSTEM
CUSTOMER: PLASTIC SECTOR
SUPPLY: BIG BAG EMPTYING STATION, EXTRACTING AND CONVEYING SCREW, GRAVIMETRIC SCREW FEEDER
Problem: extracting powder from a big bag and dosing it continuously into extrusion process
Solution: the big bag emptying station allows to empty the big bag safely and to convey powders directly by means of an inclined screw conveyor (or in other cases, by pneumatic conveying) to the gravimetric screw feeder, which is equipped by a refill hopper in order to be always feeding required powder.
The same system can work in batches for mixer loading or bag filling applications.
