Within our case studies section, you will find a range of case studies that feature our product range and illustrate the various methods we use to successfully handle and move a vast array of ingredients. You can search case studies either by product, by industry or by material.
Innospec replicated their application at another plant making chemicals for personal care products. The main ingredient is delivered in bulk bags. Spiroflow supplied a bulk bag unloader with an integral flexible screw conveyor to supply the reactor. 55 lb/25 kg bags of catalyst are added through the unloader’s access doors.
A leading chemical company required a Bulk Bag Discharger with a loss-in-weight metering feeder. The customer required the Discharger to have a maximum height of 9 feet when operational and be capable of collapsing down to within a height and a width of 6.5 feet to facilitate movement around the plant. We rose to the challenge!
A manufacturer of construction industry products required a reliable replacement for an existing materials delivery system. Additives arrive in bulk bags, up to 1.8 tons, or 50 lb bags. Our solution included two Bulk Bag Dischargers and two Aero Mechanical Conveyors. One of the Dischargers has an integral Bag Dump Station.
As the bags are unloaded from ships, our customer wanted to transfer the chemical contents of bulk bags directly into road transportable ISO Tanks. We built a bulk bag unloader, with a high capacity rigid screw conveyor, into a mobile frame. A partial enclosure offers some protection from rain & sea-spray.
Robert McBride Ltd. manufactures private label household & personal care products. To improve efficiency & eliminate dust in their plant, they needed to eliminate manually loading 50 lb (25 kg) bags of chemicals used to manufacture their descaling gel. Spiroflow provided a bag dump station with a dust hood, a short flexible screw conveyor & an aero mechanical conveyor to do the job. The equipment meets all their needs including their required 6,600 lb/hr (2,994 kg/hr) material conveying rates.
Ejector specialist Transvac Systems Ltd worked with Spiroflow to develop a containerized dosing system inside of a 20 ft (6m) ISO container. The entire solids additive handling system, the dosing ejector, associated controls, safety & alarm systems operate within the mobile space.
Aero mechanical and center-less screw conveyors are widely used for filling road tankers and can be mounted on mobile frames for ease of use. Spiroflow offers bulk bag (FIBC) or rigid bin discharge stations as an integral part of tanker and rail car loading systems. A high level probe in the discharge spout insures automatic conveyor shut-off once the tanker section is filled.
