Case studies - Seeds industry
Storage, discharge of raw materials, conveying, dosing and dissolution.
To ensure the coating or lamination of seeds (improvement of protection and optimisation of growth), the sector's industrialists develop products in liquid form incorporating bulk materials in powder form (Kaolin, chalk, clay, talc and active substances such as guazatine, mancozeb...).
Dosing hoppers ensure the preparation of the incorporations with a conveying to the tanks generally by pneumatic conveying. Containment in the discharging and conveying phases is essential when handling potentially sensitive bulk materials. Automation ensures the accuracy of dosages as well as the traceability of manufacturing batches.
