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.

Equipment Used in Bulk & Powder Bulk Solid Handling

Bulk Bag Station

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.

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.
