Bulk Material Handling Equipment

Granulated and dry bulk materials such as grain, powdered chemicals, sugar, flour and dry cereal require specialized conveying, mixing and processing systems. These bulk material handling and powder bulk handling systems are designed for the integrated industrial mixing, conveying, measuring and packaging of delicate, friable, sticky or free-flowing solids. Unlike parts, equipment and other products which are conveyed through fabrication, assembly and packaging by belt and chain conveyors, bulk solids and powdered solids require a closed screw conveyor, flexible screw conveyor or pneumatic conveyor system which prevents caking, packing, liquefying, contamination and agglomeration. Industrial mixers, dryers, pulverizers and vibratory feeders are integrated into bulk material handling systems for complete processing.

Bulk Bag Unloaders

Bulk bags are used as large volume portable containers in multiple stages of bulk and powder material processing systems. Materials are loaded into bags through conveyors by bulk bag fillers, a frame designed specifically to hold a bag during filling; bag fillers often serve dually as bulk bag conditioners by weighing the materials within the bag and shaping the filled bag into a manageable shape. Bag dump stations, or bulk bag dischargers, turn filled bags upside-down over a pneumatic conveyor, screw conveyor, hopper or vibratory feeder for the powdered or bulk material inside to be distributed to other processes.

Industrial blowers provide air and gas movement in ventilation, circulation and drying applications. Pneumatic conveying systems depend on blowers and vacuums to convey bulk materials, and drying and dust collecting stations within a bulk material handling system use blowers at multiple stages as well.

Industrial dryers are often integrated into the final processing stages of a variety of bulk materials for the final removal of contaminating moisture. Products such as dry cereal or flour are rotated through an air dryer, rotary dryer or flash dryer to ensure the bulk solid or powdered material has the proper uniform consistency and will not grow bacteria due to moisture.

Dust Collectors

Dust collectors are devices that are utilized to capture hazardous particles. The unwanted particles are pulled into a filter or separator and then the clean air is released. This equipment comes in a variety of styles including bag houses, jet dust collectors, cyclone dust collectors, and more.

Industrial mixers in a variety of configurations are used to blend multiple bulk or powdered materials together as part of a bulk material processing system. Mixers used in powder & bulk applications are typically paddle mixers or ribbon blenders; sometimes powdered or dry materials are mixed with wet materials to form products such as bread dough or slurries.

Palletizers are devices used for loading and unloading pallets which not only offer increased efficiency in a work zone but also safer working environment. Palletizers can be categorized into three different types: robotic palletizers, high level palletizers, and low level palletizers. Robotic palletizers are programmable hydraulic machines that are able to sort and stack items with precision. The difference between high level palletizers and low level palletizers is how the pallets are loaded. In low level palletizers the products are loaded from the ground level whereas the high level palletizers are loaded from above. All of these systems are fully automatic and perform at a much faster rate compared to humans due to the fact these machines do not become fatigued.

Pneumatic Conveyors

Pneumatic conveyors are hollow, tubular structures which transport bulk solids and powdered solids from one processing station to another. Bulk materials are pushed through these conveyors by an airstream generated at the base of the tube by a blower or vacuum.

Vacuum Pumps

Vacuum pumps are most often categorized as either wet or dry pumps based upon the application. These products can be equipped with various features to direct airflow in different ways and the main benefit of vacuum pumps is they pull air out of an enclosure while preventing any re-entry.

Vibratory Feeders

Vibratory feeders are conveying ramps or feeding tubes which assist in transferring bulk and powder solids to and from conveyors, processes and hoppers. By vibrating the discharge end of a hopper or conveyor, powdered material caked on the sides and within is loosened until it falls freely. Bulk handling sometimes uses vibratory feeding ramps to convey over short distances, and most bulk bag filling, bag dumping and hoppers are equipped with vibrating feeders.
