FLSmidth`s Pneumatic Transport group is a worldwide leader in pneumatic bulk conveying for the process and materials handling industries. We offer innovative technology and broad experience in all aspects of material handling systems.
The DUSTFIX® Dust Conditioner was developed to condition industrial dust in an economical manner, considerably simplifying handling and disposal operations. Innovative SINTTM engineering polymer components make the DUSTFIX® Conditioner suitable for continuous duty. In a particularly short mixing time, throughput rates ranging from 20 to 80 m³/h are achieved.
The RWN Rotary Feeders by TOREX® are designed for controlled discharge and feeding of pellets or wood chips from silos, hoppers or similar containers. The excellent cutting performance by the Hardox® rotor and feed rates of 2, 5, 10 and 20 litres per revolution, in combination with the available speeds of 20 and 30 revolutions per minute, make the RWN the ideal rotary feeder for use in solids combustion plants.
The MLH Laboratory Mixer is an extremely efficient, versatile mixer that finds its application in a number of fields thanks to its outstanding price-performance ratio. The MLH is used in both private and university research laboratories, as well as in testing facilities of various industries and service providers.
PLASTIROL from the Dutch town of Sliedrecht is a manufacturer of plastic foil produced in large rolls. For their raw materials, which are recycled from production waste, in the past they used bulk bags. This usually caused many storage, handling, discharge and replacement issues in their internal logistics system. The move towards larger storage silos linked to a vast duct network became mandatory.
The CI Series rotary valves are also available in sanitary 304 or 316 cast stainless steel models. Sanitary CI Series models also offer the ACS RotorRail™ quick-clean feature.
The DMN-WESTINGHOUSE HP high pressure rotary valve has a very important advantage in air leakage: the special configuration of the body and rotor does not only protect product against degradation, it also does not allow any axial air leakage. This means that this valve has an air leakage reduction of one third against other standard high pressure valves.
For over 125 years, FLSmidth has been an industry leader in pneumatic conveying components and systems for bulk materials handling. FLSmidth has a very strong commitment to research and development. In fact, we operate one of the largest R&D testing facilities in the cement world, developing new equipment and technology. We are a leading designer / supplier of pneumatic conveying systems for the Cement & Minerals, Oil and Gas, and Power industries. Services include system design and engineering, FLSmidth and Fuller® manufactured components, aftermarket parts and services, R&D research and testing, field service.
Some of us work better under pressure, while others like a longer, more drawn out process to stay in control. The same goes for materials as they pass through a conveying system.
Each material requires its own level of pressure, aeration and pocket size to ensure that your system is reaching its optimal material flow.
Here are three things to consider when selecting a rotary valve for your pneumatic conveying system to improve your material flow.
