Case Study: Conveying Hop Pellets to Brew Kettles, E-finity® Pneumatic Conveying System is Designed for Stability, Short Courses for Pneumatic Conveying of Bulk Solids, and Top 10 Considerations for Pneumatic Conveying Systems Design.
A craft brewery needed to regularly add hop pellets or malt into their 20-30 foot high kettles during the beer-making process. They were no longer comfortable with having staff climb up wet ladders with fifty pound bags on their shoulders, to manually dump these products into the vessels.
Schenck Process E-finity® is a patented continuous dense phase convey system for fragile materials. Precise pressure monitoring and airflow corrections allow the system to operate efficiently under all conditions.
If you transport bulk solid materials via pneumatic conveying systems these short courses could be invaluable. 6 – 8 November 2018 – Pneumatic Conveying of Bulk Materials and 4 – 5 December 2018 – Commissioning and Troubleshooting Pneumatic Conveying Systems. Courses are held at the Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology, Chatham, Kent UK.
Food processors are experts at producing food products, chemical manufacturers are experts at developing chemicals, pharmaceutical companies are experts at making drugs, and pneumatic conveying manufacturers are experts at moving bulk solids.
