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.
Spiroflow's automated Cableflow Tubular Drag Conveyor solution delivers coffee from multiple roasters at the touch of a button. Eight O'Clock Coffee required a new conveying system that could transfer coffee from 11 different roasters to bag hoppers above their high speed packaging equipment while minimizing material degradation. Spiroflow's tubular drag conveyors, configured to fit within the plant's current layout, gently move whole bean and ground coffee to the high speed packaging line at a rate of 10,000 lb/hour!
Spiroflow has provided Hexion with a safer more reliable solution for conveying hazardous, explosive hexamine in their Acme, NC plant. They replaced another supplier’s flexible screw conveyors with Spiroflow’s bulk bag discharger and Dynaflow® chain drag conveyor. The new system has yielded a much safer, cleaner and more productive process solution for Hexion.
