Gas impulse discharge

Keeping it safe!

Coal dust, sulphur or outgassing solids can be a challenge for many conveyor systems. Especially products that react with oxygen can be highly explosive! But our tube chain conveyors will safely distribute these media to various discharge sites such as silos or reactors.

The solution is called a gas impulse discharge using nitrogen: A gun will trigger controlled gas impulses via nozzles to separate the bulk material from the conveyor chain even without the help of gravity. Depending on the zone, this can be done in compliance with ATEX, gas or pressure tight or explosion proof, because Schrage accessories are not only safe, but they are also quite the standard.

 

All the advantages at a glance

  • Supports the discharge of sticking and explosive bulk materials
  • Can be used with bulk materials that react with oxygen
  • Attached to the discharge sites or at the site of transfer to other systems
  • In this case, the entire system will be designed in compliance with ATEX
  • Depending on the bulk material, the design is gas and pressure tight or explosion proof

Air impulse discharge

A fresh breeze!

There are products that are simply more attached to our systems than others. For those, Schrage has come up with the air impulse discharge: A nozzle-controlled air impulse makes sure that even those materials separate easily from the conveyor chain.

The air impulse gets products with poor flow properties moving inside the tube chain conveyor or helps sticky materials to easily separate from the conveyor chain. If requested, Schrage systems can also be designed to comply with ATEX, gas or pressure tight and/or explosion proof and delivered as fast as the wind.

All advantages at a glance

  • Supports the discharge of bulk materials which do not come off the chain by themselves
  • Attached to the discharge sites or at the site of transfer to other systems
  • Used whenever vibration systems are not powerful enough
  • Depending on the bulk material, the design is gas and pressure tight or explosion proof

Beater support

Keeping the flow!

Your product is extremely attached? Sticky, adhesive or compacting? Then a beater will provide for flawless operation during infeed and discharge.

During the infeed process it can prevent the dreaded formation of bridges (agglutinations).
The beaterr will get floury bulk materials, heavily compacting powder or very fine dust, such as titanium dioxide in motion by means of vibrations and makes sure that the bulk material flows freely along the outer wall of the infeed hopper.

But it also helps with discharging products, e.g. by separating it from the conveyor chain. The beater causes a slide to vibrate, which moves over the conveyor discs above the conveyor chain, thereby separating the bulk material from the chain.

By the way, beaters are operated pneumatically or electrically, depending on the air supply connection or the noise limit on site. If low noise is required, an electric beaterr with an unbalance motor is the right choice. Of course, our beaters are also available in an ATEX-compliant design and adapted to mild steel or stainless steel and – as always – in top Schrage quality!

All the advantages at a glance

  • Supports the infeed and discharge of bulk materials
  • For sticky bulk materials, compacting powders or fine dusts
  • Available in electric or pneumatic design
  • In mild or stainless steel, depending on design

Bridge breakers

Keep it going!

Bridge breakers are the solution for sludge or sticky products with poor flow properties, which tend to form material agglutinations or bridges.

If the product already starts accumulating in the infeed area and thus prevents continuous transportation, our rotating infeed aids, the so-called bridge breakers will come to your aid.

And the great thing is that they effectively prevent agglutinations before they even start forming. 

The structured surface of the stainless steel wheels supports this effect and also promotes the turnover inside the infeed hopper. This way, the middle of the chute remains clear, the filling level can be estimated at any time and, if necessary, readjusted.

The wheels are moved by means of an independent drive; their rotational speed is variable and can be adjusted to the conveyed medium.

No more cost and time intensive downtimes, but simply reliable operation – that is conveyor technology made by Schrage!

 

All the advantages at a glance

  • Supports the infeed of products with poor flow properties
  • Prevents bridge formation and agglomeration in the infeed area
  • Guarantees the continuous flow of the product
  • Rotational speed can easily be adjusted to the conveyed material
  • No more downtimes – reliable operation
