This return customer needed a new safe, efficient and reliable system to add, convey, store and dose hydrated lime (calcium hydroxide) into a liquid stream - all installed outdoors with temperature variations from -13 to +99ºF! Spiroflow provided a Bag Dump Station with a sifter and their Tubular Chain Drag Conveyor that transfers the chemicals to a silo fitted with load cells and level probe. A metering feeder with loss-in-weight controls discharges the hydrated lime necessary to treat the volume of liquid.
Although the materials listed are traditionally handled manually, in a modern pulp and paper plant they are normally handled in Bulk Bags (FIBCs). Due to the large quantities used, bulk bags are replacing 50 lb. bags. Spiroflow's material handling systems help pulp and paper companies reduce dust, reduce cost & increase operator safety.
