Hazardous Area IECEX Sugar Dense Phase Conveying
Filquip has specified, supplied and commissioned a Hazardous Area IECEX Sugar Dense Phase Conveying system (ExtD) to transport 6TPH of sugar a distance of 270m between the existing sugar refinery and the new sugar processing facility on the other side of the plant.
The following equipment package was supplied by Filquip:
- Full Pipeline Dense Phase System for White Sugar 12TPA600 FP Model.
- 1699L Vessel Capacity, Hazardous Zone 21 Rated, IECEX Certified Instruments (ExtD).
- Inclusive of Electrical Control and Air Control Panels and Pipeline Air Boosters.
- Receiver Silo Explosion Protection Panel (s).
Without this Dense Phase conveying system, the sugar refinery would not be able to build the new processing facility on the other side of the plant 270m away with 8 pipe bends and receive the sugar in a cost-effective manner.
Given the hazardous area dust explosion risks associated with Sugar handling. Filquip supplied this Dense Phase system with IECEX ExtD Zone 21 Rated Instrumentation and components rated to 10 bar pressure which is above the maximum explosion pressure of sugar.
