Processed powder: chromium powder
Drum and big bag loading
This installation concerns a leading company in metal manufacturing.
The chromium powder is stored in containers (flowbins) which are deconditioned in a collecting hopper.
The objective is to screen and package in big bags or drums chromium powder with an integrated dosing system. The flow rate of the installation is 20 t./h.
The equipment includes a container deconditioning system. The industrial container is positioned using an electric hoist. The container unloading station is equipped with centering devices to optimize its installation. The connection with the container is made by a socket gasket to optimize the tightness. Once the container is installed, the operator will manually open the drain valve. The chromium powder then flows into a collecting hopper. This hopper feeds a vibrating conveyor which ensures the dosing and transport of the chromium powder to a vibrating screen. At the outlet of the sieve, the powder is packaged in big bags or drums.
Palamatic Process has designed a packaging station for big bags and drums. This machine is used for filling big bags and drums, limiting dust emissions as much as possible and facilitating the flow of the material. An automatic big bag tensioning system ensures optimum filling and excellent stability of the big bag on its pallet.
The FlowMatic® 02 filling machine includes 2 parts. The first is the filling station for big bags and drums. The second is a movable part for the accumulation of drums.
The filling of the big bags is perfectly airtight thanks to the filling head allowing a strap connection. Indeed, a leather strap is used to tighten the big bag cuff on the filling pipe.
At the end of the filling process, the drums are removed on the roller conveyor. The roller accumulation conveyor can handle up to 2 industrial drums. Big bags are evacuated by forklift truck or pallet truck.
