Reliable Solutions, High Quality Results
One of the world’s leading research based pharmaceutical and healthcare companies, and one of the oldest pharmaceuticals companies in India, required a conveying solution for handling the raw material from the raw material warehouse to the process silos, then weighing and batching of the raw material for further conveying to the processing vessel and then finally conveying the finished product.
What is critical?
The hygiene aspect was one of the most critical parameter in designing the system, considering handling of hygroscopic material.
Raw Material Handling to Milk Standardization area
Milk standardization process requires a system to standardize the quality of Milk
before it is used in the process. Desired quantity of Skimmed milk powder and
weigh powder are dissolved in an Agitator Vessel. Milk additive powders are
always critical to handle due to their hygroscopic nature and hygienic aspect
being extremely critical when designing such a system.
We designed a Lean Phase Pneumatic conveying system for handling skimmed milk powder and weigh powder from raw material ware house to process silo in process building and milk standardization area. Air from the atmosphere was filtered and dehumidified using the suitable type of dehumidifier and used for conveying, for nullify the hygroscopic nature of the milk additive powders and preparing for easy conveying.
Skimmed milk powder and weigh powders are available in 25kg/50kg bags. These bags are to be unloaded into bag dumping station with the bin mounted dust collectors to ensure the dust free unloading of bags in to the hoppers. Then powders from the hoppers would be fed to the conveying line with the help of specially designed rotary air lock valves and conveyed to the batching hoppers.
Weighing - Batching system.
In weighing and batching system, skimmed milk powder and weigh powder are to be received in weigh hopper and batch is prepared. Weigh hopper was provided with precise load cells which accurately weighs the required quantity of milk additive powders and gives the feedback to panel. And the batch is ready to be conveyed to Milk standardization area.
Milk Standardization system.
Measured quantity of skimmed milk powder and weigh powders to be fed to the
Milk Standardization Vessel for dissolving the skimmed milk powder and weigh
powder in chilled Milk at 4 Deg C temperature. The dissolving operation of
skimmed milk and weigh powder is carried out with the help of agitator vessel.
After dissolving measured quantity of skimmed milk powder in the Milk Standardization, the Standardized Milk will be fed back with the help of Milk Pump. The whole operation sequence is operated through the PLC control in AUTO as well as manual model.
Our competence to create a complete solution rendered high quality and reliable results.
Industry: Iron & Steel
One of our esteemed customer required accurately weighed raw material feeding to discharge hoppers above the weigh hopper. Then weighing and conveying the complete batch to the destination hopper from which it is fed to the further process.
What is critical?
Weighing accuracy being most important, the designing of the conveying and weighing system had to be done with extreme precision.
We successfully installed and commissioned a batching and formulation system in steel
plant additives section in our customer’s steel plant.
1. Bag Slitting Machine & Raw Material Handling
2. Weighing - Batching system
3. Air slide conveying system and pneumatic conveying system
The whole operation sequence is operated through the PLC control panel in AUTO as well as manual mode.
Our competence to create a complete solution enables high quality and reliable results.
