Rotoflo is designed to help with material handling ensuring that silo discharge is free-flowing and controlled, when handling a number of diverse materials. Rotoflo is designed to help prevent powder bridging in silos and hoppers.
Silos are generally used for the storage and discharge of powdered or granular bulk solids and a silo discharge system is designed to aid discharge of materials quickly and efficiently, eliminating the risk of powder bridging or blockage.
Rotoflo silo discharge units can be built in or retro-fit to existing vessels and allow materials to be safely and efficiently discharged from a silo or hooper. With multiple configurable outlets, a Rotoflo silo discharge unit can uniquely both reduce the risk of material flow problems within a vessel and provide a controlled rate of discharge to multiple downstream processes.
Powder bridging is when the materials in a silo or hooper become interlocked and forms a stable arch or rat-hole over the designated outlet. When powder bridging occurs, the materials stored in the silo become trapped. Silos should be fitted with an appropriate discharge aid to avoid this and ensure correct and efficient discharge.
The common causes of powder bridging include:
With Rotoflo, you can simply and effectively prevent power bridging and discharge problems in silo systems without the need for vibration or aeration. Rotoflo can help prevent powder bridging by offering:
