Lean Phase Conveying Systems – A Batch Hopper Case Study


Blo-Tech Ltd. specialise in pneumatic conveying and mechanical handling systems for the bulk material handling industry. We have recently designed and manufactured a bespoke 8 m³ batch hopper for a pharmaceutical client that utilises both a lean and medium phase vacuum conveying system to fill and then discharge the batch hopper.

The hopper has a flanged connection to which a detachable, inspectable, reverse-jet-cleaning filter is mounted. This filter allows for the air used to convey the silica powder into the hopper to be released cleanly back into the atmosphere or out of the plant as required, whilst achieving a high separation efficiency.

As part of the wider Rotolok Group, Solitec design and manufacture a range of modular mechanical conveyors for the chemical, food and pharmaceutical industries.

If you are looking to convey, dose or discharge granulates or powders whether this be from a bulk bag discharger, sack tip station, hopper, silo or valve then Solitec have a mechanical conveying solution for your application.
