Hoppers and pneumatic conveying system

Before baking the expanded foam (styrofoam), the foamed raw material must be dried for several hours in order to stabilize the internal crumb pressure with atmospheric pressure. For this purpose, the holding and dispensing hoppers (silos) are used, which are made of special fabric and allow foamed granules to give away excess moisture. The volume of silos supplied depends on the height of the workshop ceiling and on the capacity of the line. We offer 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 m3 hoppers. To hang the silos, a special metal structure is needed, which can be prefabricated or welded. Hoppers are equipped with sensors of the top and bottom crumb levels.

Fans and pneumatic conveying system feed the foamed raw material into the silos and then load it into the block mould. This system is equipped with loading and unloading fans of various capacities, polypropylene air ducts and fittings, flexible hoses and special clamps. In case of a high workshop capacity, a special pneumatic conveying control system is installed, which distributes the flow of foamed granules in the right direction.
