For mixing machines, Plantech provides complete and automated solutions for the storage, handling and dosing of flour, sugar, years and additives in powder or granular form.
The supply of silos includes ladders and walkways, filling pipes, dedusting filters, safety valves for the overpressure, of anti-burst membranes in the case of potentially explosive powders, level indicators and vibrating cone extractors for poorly flowable products.
When the raw materials or additives are available in bags or Big Bags, Plantech provides its own manual bags emptying stations and Big Bags emptying stations which can be provided with hoist for direct loading or spider for loading using forklift truck. The machines may be equipped with built-in dedusting filters and suitable accessories such as flat bottom extractors, electro-pneumatic vibrators or fluidisation devices.
The dosing stations, useful for supplying the additives necessary for the formulation of the required recipes are designed for powders and liquids, using volumetric or gravimetric batchers and weighing scales. In plants meant for mixing machines, the choice of the handling system is assessed according to the distances to be covered, type of product to be handled, flor rates required and the process to be served.
The system mainly used is the pneumatic conveyor, for extraction of products from silos and from scales, for supplying the weighed cyclone filters upline of the mixing machines and under pressure, for loading the silos.
