De Dietrich Process Systems proposed a bulk bag unloading station with two Powder Pump conveying systems to transfer the Sodium Gluconate. We knew from in-house testing of the product that the material would flow easily. This meant enhancements like bag massage, vibration or fluidization would not be required and would help minimize overall cost of the system.
To further help with making this an economical solution, one single vacuum pump was provided to service both Powder Pump systems instead of two.
To feed each Powder Pump system, DDPS supplied all the necessary pipework. The pipework design included a 2-way diverter valve that enabled the customer to select which vessel needed to be fed.
Lastly, we supplied a complete control system with PLC and HMI. The HMI was designed to be intuitive and allow operators to input the information needed to operate the system. If the system needed to be serviced or troubleshooting was required, we also provided different access levels in the system to ensure these types of things could only be done by trained personnel.
