Our customer encases radioactive waste in cement filled drums sealed with a cement grout. A Spiroflow flexible screw conveyor is used to accurately meter precise amounts of cement & pulverized fuel ash to the mixer where the grout is produced.
A manufacturer of cement products needed to discharge 5 components from 3,000 bulk bags for delivery to either of two mixers. Spiroflow supplied five (5) loss-in-weight bulk bag unloaders with metering feeders to transfer constituents into a horizontal aero mechanical conveyor. This feeds a second vertical aero mechanical conveyor which lifts materials to the ‘wet’ or ‘dry’ mixer.
Spiroflow worked with Access Security Products Ltd. to resolve a powder handling problem with a proprietary cement mixture used in their manufacturing process. The material is a fine powder, which arrives by container quite compacted, has very poor flow characteristics bridges easily, is very abrasive & readily absorbs moisture. Spiroflow installed a bulk bag unloader fitted with dual flexible screw conveyors. The flex screws deliver the cement powder to two (2) aero mechanical conveyors that fill an outdoor silo about 40 ft (12m) outside of the building.
