When powder activated carbon (PAC) is transported mechanically, dust is a major issue. The Sodimix is a new PAC dust absorption system that eliminates any dust created by screw conveyors feeding into slurry tanks without the use of air filters. The Sodimix principle is to pre-mix the PAC into a wetting/agitation immersion pipe with a high-velocity shear mixer while a water eductor creates negative pressure in the same outlet, vacuuming any suspended dust through a unique reverse air/water filter. During the automatic cleaning cycle, a three-way valve diverts the supply water through the air/water filter to collect and rinse the PAC particles captured from the conveying process. This new PAC filtration system is completely dust free and can be easily mounted on existing dry-to-slurry processes. Typical applications include PAC, polymers, potassium permanganate and clay.
