Bulker designs and manufactures standard and customized solutions as required.
In process industry, the production cycle starts with the reception of raw materials. In this case, granular or powdered solids.
Such materials are received in different formats such as bags, big bags or by silo truck.
Bulker has different equipment for the raw materials reception and their storage or delivery process.
– Bag dump stations
– Big bag dischargers
– Silo truck unloading system
– Bulk container unloading system
Storage for powder or granulated products, as raw materials or finished product, require silos or bins waiting for their transfer. Generally manufactured in stainless steel or aluminium.
Dimensions depend on production and quantity of product.
These may include equipment such as filters bag, vent panels, weighing systems or level and air handling systems for products sensitive to moisture or temperature.
Depending on the type of product devices are needed to force the discharge. Such as bin activators, fluidized cones or mechanical agitators.
Bulker offers different feeders depending on the production required.
Feeders may operate continuosly or in batches.
These are specially designed for powder or granulated products, adapting to different densities and particle sizes.
. Volumetric feeders – volume per unit time, less precision.
. Gravimetric feeders – weight per unit time, more precision
. Micro feeders – High precision
Bulker has different equipment to cover main processes:
Mechanical conveying uses devices such as bucket elevators, screw conveyors, conveyor belts.
Its application is usually for low-value products, and is also a cheaper option.
. DENSE PHASE .
Dense phase is characterized by the high proportion of output with respect to the air. The conveying speed is low, preventing degradation, segregation of particles. This type of conveying is also highly recommended for abrasive products considering that the wear of pipe is much lower than in the dilute phase. Productions can reach 300T/h to distances over 500 meters.
. DILUTE PHASE .
Dilute phase is one which the particles move through pipes at high speed with a lot of air at low pressure. It comes in two forms pressure and suction. Drive systems are effective to feed several points from the destiny point, while exhaust systems are advantageous when we need to nurture an item from different points.
Characterized by displacement of particles in a pipe at high speed with a large amount of low pressure air. It comes in two types: pressure and suction.
