Modes of Pneumatic Conveying DemonstrationA pneumatic conveying demonstration system featuring transparent glass pipe will be a highlight to the booth, which will allow attendees to see firsthand different modes of conveying bulk solid material. The unit will be constructed to allow guests to observe particle flow through this unique and one-of-a-kind system. See for yourself how different conveying methods are especially suitable for premixed materials, materials with high bulk density, materials which are abrasive, friable, or tend to segregate.
Recirculating Conveying System with Bulk Solids Pump (BSP) Feeder DemonstrationThe unique Coperion K-Tron Bulk Solids Pump (BSP) feeder will be featured in this working recirculating system, together with a 2415 receiver. The running unit will demonstrate unique characteristics of the BSP feeder and the versatility of the Series 2400 vacuum sequencing receivers.
The BSP feeder line has been specifically designed and engineered to provide gentle, precise feeding of free-flowing pellets, granules, and friable bulk materials. BSP feeders do not use the usual screws/augers, belts or vibratory trays to convey the material. They utilize positive displacement action to feed free flowing materials with highest accuracy, offering uniform discharge, consistent volume and gentle handling. BSP feeders have vertical rotating discs that create feeding ducts. Material moves smoothly from storage hopper to discharge outlet through a “product lock-up zone,” achieving true linear mass flow. With only one moving part, these compact feeders are cleaned in seconds, making them ideal for applications with frequent material changes. Three sizes are available, offering feed rates of 2 to 6,700 dm3/h. On display will be the model K-ML-BSP-150-S.
The Series 2400 vacuum receivers provide a high capacity sequencing system primarily used on multiple destination applications where larger conveying rates or long distances are required. They are designed to high quality standards for pneumatically conveying powder, pellet and granular materials for the bulk materials handling industries. Conveying rates range from 327 to 6,804 kg/h. On display will be the 2415 Powder Receiver.
