Waste Recycling Group needed a Bulk Bag Discharger to empty single bags and a method of transferring alkaline powder to a blending tank where acidic liquors are neutralized. A Spiroflow single trip Bulk Bag Discharger and Aero Mechanical Conveyor are successfully used for this application.
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 offers a complete system for accurately discharging and metering dry water treatment chemicals. Many of the products used for pH control, such as hydrated lime, activated carbon and soda ash are now delivered in one ton bulk bags. Spiroflow is recognized worldwide as a leading manufacturer of bulk bag unloaders, as well as flexible screw conveyors, which have been used in the water treatment industry for many years for metering and conveying from silos.
