Bulk Material Storage System Provides Integrated Mixing System

November 28, 2012

Designed specifically for fully automated storage, introduction, transfer, mixing, and blending of multiple, sluggish materials, this bulk material storage system uses an integrated mixing system to produce such homogenous blends that downstream production scrap is virtually eliminated. An NBE lift-and-seal gaylord discharge system, with a dust-tight, custom discharge hood introduces the material to the transfer bin. An integrated agitator and vacuum pump transfer system supply material to the high-volume storage hopper and material mixer. Within the mixer, a 16-in.-diam auger mixes material in a 17-in.-diam, 10-gauge mix tube. In-feed scoop blades at the base of the mixing auger, and broad-throw dispersion paddles at the top of the mixing auger ensure a homogenous and consistent blend supply to downstream processes.
