In this typical dense-phase conveying system, flowable products are unloaded from a rail car positioned over a track hopper and conveyed to storage silos. Products are subsequently metered and weighed from the silos and product is delivered on-demand to in-plant processing systems.
WhirlAir manufactures a comprehensive line of pulse jet dust collection systems specifically designed for pneumatic conveying applications. Field proven in real- world conditions, WhirlAir dust collectors provide reliable, leak resistant performance in a broad range of conditions and workload environments.
Whirl-Slides are high volume conveyors designed to move powders and free-flowing products along a nearly horizontal plane. The simply designed, rectangular enclosure eliminates airborne dust particles during transport of products.Air Slides
Whirl-Air Weigh-Veyors are designed to accurately weigh single or multiple free-flowing ingredients into a combination scale mounted transporter.Then using the transporter to pneumatically convey the weighed product(s) to one or more destinations.
Whirl-Air Transporters are at the heart of the dense phase conveying system. In this typical system, bulk material is directly unloaded from the rail car (1) and conveyed to storage silos. A second Whirl-Air Transporter (2) conveys a weighed batch of material from the silos to processing bins.
Increased awareness for worker safety and the regulatory efforts of the EPA and OSHA, coupled with the advent of clean air legislation, has brought about new standards for in-plant cleaning.
