Mobile Pneumatic Conveying System Automatically Empties Trailers, Railcars

Developed to prevent product loss, contamination, and fugitive dust emissions during the unloading of powders, pellets, and other bulk materials from tankers, trailers, railcars, and silos, the mobile STP 61 pneumatic conveying control system enables process engineers to deploy proprietary technology used to automate conveying inside the plant at the point of receiving outside the plant.

The mobile STP 61 integrates the company's proprietary controller with a pneumatic safety valve and associated connections all set within a rolling platform for easy movement to the discharge. Once a sealed connection is established, the controller directs the material transfer automatically, safely, and efficiently.

Delivered fully assembled and tested, the control system arrives pre-programmed and ready to operate or custom configure using a full-color, touch-screen control panel setup in a choice of 14 languages. In operation, the mobile STP 61 automatically manages the ratio of conveying air to product to promote fast unloading and minimize air consumption while providing a comprehensive range of process data on-site and in real-time.
