Wastewater treatment is the process of converting wastewater or used water into water that can be discharged back into the environment safely. Industrial wastewater treatment covers the mechanisms and processes used to treat contaminated water. What results into wastewater? The main concern is the increase in synthetic compounds in wastewater as result of commercial activities…Details
Screw feeders come in different lengths, sizes, configurations, and are made from different materials depending on the nature of the product you want to handle. Selecting the right screw feeder for your industry is important for an efficient and safest process. WHAT IS SCREW FEEDER? A screw feeder is a piece of equipment that, as…Details
Flue gas treatment is the process of reducing the amount of pollutants that are emitted when fossil fuels, including wood, natural gas, oil, and coal are burnt at a power plant, an industrial facility, or any other place. These pollutants, if released freely, can affect the quality of air, both locally and regionally, quite substantially. Read on…Details
Pump skid systems or packaged pump skids generally consist of a pump and a driver mounted on a steel base. They’re often assembled by the manufacturers, but if a buyer wishes they can buy the components and assemble the system themselves. Read on to see more details of the pump skid system including its components,…Details
A bulk storage silo is a large structure that is used to store bulk material. There are different types of bulk storage silos you may choose based on your needs and the nature of the bulk material you want to store. Read on to find out everything you’ll need to know about bulk storage silos!…Details
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.
Calcium hydroxide slurry is a suspension of calcium hydroxide in water. The calcium hydroxide or lime slurry results from the mixing of dry hydrated lime with water in a mixing tank equipped with a slurry agitator.Details
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
