A Pull/Push system involves pulling material from a railcar to a filter receiver, before it is blown to the top of the silos. ABS Filter Receivers, Rotary Airlocks, Pumps, and SMART Distribution Systems are perfect for this application.
ABS Filter Receivers eliminate the need for a cyclone filter at the pump because the air is filtered directly at the vacuum receiver. They are designed to optimize airflow through the unit and minimize restrictions. These units have a precise measure of delta P, which is used to alarm and control cleaning cycles so only dirty bags are cleaned. Front door allows easy bag access, and bags are connected with quick-release claps to make bag-changing a snap. Self-cleaning, completely sealed design purges waste into an easy-to-clean canister.
Remote Pressure Convey allows the blender to be mounted remote from the extruder by significantly reducing or eliminating segregation of blend during convey. Remote Pressure Convey kits use rotary airlocks, which can be retrofitted without modifications to replace inefficient eductors. Variable Frequency Drives can be added to optimize the performance and efficiency of Remote Pressure Convey.
Pump Packages are designed for the conveying of bulk solids. High-efficiency motors, high-vacuum relief valves, premium silencers, and a secondary paper canister filter all come standard in pump packages. Optional Variable Frequency Drive controls the pick-up velocity of the material to reduce angel hair and improve system efficiency.
SMART Systems reduce required piping and ensure that the right material is connected to the right destination. SMART allows a single common material line to be used in applications with multiple vacuum pumps. SMART also verifies that the material connections match the recipe, reducing the possibility of human error.
