The challenge

The customer needed a compact total separator after a pneumatic conveyor for distribution of various minerals and additives - which are delivered by trucks - to several silos in a short time

The solution

As a solution, a total separator construction form 17 with a hopper was installed for each multiple silo unit. The product was conveyed via a large pressure-shock resistent rotary valve (50 m3 / h) to a rotary tube distributor, which then distributed it to the corresponding silo. The total separator is ATEX and pressure-shock resistant, in the event of a deflagration or the like, the overpressure is conducted into the room via a pressure relief valve - without flame.

The value

The customer has a compact system through which he can safely convey various materials and distribute them to the appropriate silos. Furthermore the ATEX requirements are met!
