Screw feeders, designed to meter bulk material, are generally located at the beginning of the discharge process. Available at varying feed rates, sizes, materials, and configurations, your needs will dictate the specifics of the system you set up. Read on to see how they work, the different designs and types in existence, and the difference…Details
Bulk material handling is the engineering that surrounds the design of systems and equipment used to handle bulk materials which are often stored in heaps and may be granular, powdery, or lumpy. A few examples of these materials are woodchips, ores, gravel, chemicals, sand, minerals, sugar, and salt in loose and bulk form. A good…Details
The screw conveyor is also called an industrial screw system or auger conveyor. It can be used for different industries. Let’s see in this, know it all about screw conveyors blog, what they are and where can they be used. What is a Screw Conveyor? A screw conveyor is a system designed to ease the…Details
What is a Pneumatic Conveying System? A pneumatic conveying system is a setup that transfers dry bulk materials, including grains and powders, through an enclosed pipeline. Differential pressure and the flow of gas like nitrogen provides the necessary force for the transfer to occur. Materials that are most effectively conveyed must be dry and they…Details
Today’s relay-based control systems, that were originally derived ladder logic programming, are being replaced with PLCs (Programmable Logic Controller) that use this language. However, for the automation of small and simple Sodimate dry chemical feed systems, relay logic controls are still the best solution.
Industries handling various chemical products may experience blockages issues in their silos. It’s essential to understand the basic concepts involved in a problematic flow to choose the right discharging equipment.
The main differences between hydrated lime and quicklime are their reactivity & their chemical composition. Hydrated lime and quicklime are both calcium compounds. In its hydrated state, calcium is called calcium hydroxide, and in its pure state it is called calcium oxide, or quicklime.Details
Interview with the Sodimate, Inc. General Manager
What types of discharge systems are available for bulk products ?
In 1959 André Taupin invented and patented the flexible mechanical feeder as a solution to effeciently convey whole grain wheat and wheat flour. Taupin created many strategic industrial alliances in the following years to allow for mass adaptation of his technology. Some of these initial allegiances were with the companies of Lundell, John Deere, and Toprac.Details
Sodimate technology can help coal-fired and waste-to-energy plants meet stringent EPA regulations regarding flue gas emissions of acidic gases and heavy metal pollutants. Sodimate’s dry sorbent injection flue gas cleaning systems can be used with dry chemicals such as lime, trona, urea, powdered activated carbon (PAC), and soda ash.Details
Over thirty years of excellence in the engineering, manufacturing, installing, and servicing of bulk handling systems defines Sodimate. Sodimate’s systems have been installed in key municipal and industrial sites across Europe, North America, and the world.Details
