Filquip has done a number of Dense Phase Conveying Trials for Spodumene Ore (An ore of lithium).
When the product was first received it was quite wet in the sample bucket and this did not load or convey well, getting stuck. Once laid out in drying pans and dried out in the sun for 4 hours (5.3% loss of product weight or 5.3% of the original product weight was moisture driven off) then it conveyed very well through the dense phase conveyor.
The video shows how much the wet Spodumene binds to itself in the video of loading and conveying and then how easily it flows once dried out (but more dusty to handle once dried).
Filquip was engaged to specify, supply and commission a Fly Ash Dense Phase Conveyor to transport 9TPH of product a distance of 40m from a Bulk Storage Silo to a Day Bin over the production line.
The system was designed to replace the older Lean Phase Conveying system which was experiencing significant wear and maintenance requirements resulting in shutdowns of the plant. The new Dense Phase Conveyor is designed for abrasive products and only has one simple moving part in the build for minimal maintenance.
The following equipment package was supplied by Filquip:
BARTOne 300 Dense Phase System 300L Vessel Capacity, Throughput capacity of 9,000kg/hr of Fly Ash at 40m distance.
Inclusive of Electrical Control and Air Control Panels and Pipeline Air Boosters for the Dense Phase System.
Extrac BA.1.1.1500 Bin Activator 1500mm diameter in Painted Mild Steel Build.
Drop Through Rotary Valve (Model RV10.20, CS, 1.1kW Motor).
Filquip has completed the Design, Supply and Commissioning for a set of 4 Loading Bellows for existing cement silos on a mine site. The silos are used for bulk cement storage and they fill into individual isotainers which transport the cement to the underground section of the mine.
The new loading bellows provide a safe way for truck drivers to load the cement into the isotainers as the previous method was a hand operated valve and rubber sock. Drivers can now position their truck with Isotainer on the back under the bellows and use the remote pendant controller to lower the bellows outlet onto the inlet of the isotainer.
The integrated dust extractor ensures there is no dust released during the filling process.
The pneumatic actuated slide gate valve allows the operator to open the flow of product as they wish and shut if off as required along with the integrated level sensing in the loading bellows also automatically shutting off the valve and product flow when the Isotainer is full preventing overfilling and backing up into the chute.
The following specifications were included for the Loading Bellows:
Qty 4: BellowJet ZAMBA.25 Models with integrated Dust control extractor in the Unit
0.55kW Winch Motor and 24v Reverse Pulse Automated Air Filter Cleaning System.
Integrated Level Indicators for Control Feedback to the Actuated Slide Gate Valve.
Inner and Outer Bellows system with wear resistant inner cones.
With anti-spillage closure cone that retracts to close the outlet after filling is completed
Filquip has recently worked with a quarry plant construction company to provide a Quarry Stone Dust Wetting System for the fines generated through the quarry screening processes.
The Filquip supplied Dustfix unit allows the plant to put the fine quarry stone dust onto a belt conveyor for stockpiling without all the excessive dust emissions generally associated with handling fine dusts on belt conveyors.
Filquip is proud to have supplied the following equipment for the Quarry Stone Dust Wetting System .
Filquip is a supplier of filter presses for the Stone, Ceramics and Tile cutting industries. The filter press allows solids/liquids seperation of the suspended fines in the cutting water. The filtered cutting water can then be run through a final polishing filter or used directly back into the cutting wash water directly.
Pressing force up to 20MPa.
PP filter plates for corrosion resistance and elevated temperatures up to 70DegC.
Filquip also supplies filter press cloths in many varieties and sizes to suit your application.
Filquip has recently worked with local installation contractors to specify and supply a system to out-load the excess stone from a Benninghoven Asphalt Plant. This Dust Conditioning system uses a screw conveyor to take the excess dust created in the asphalt process and condition it with water to minimise the release of dust during open truck filling for disposal.
This system results in a significant saving in ongoing costs for the Asphalt plant as they no longer require Vacuum Sucker Trucks to remove the Excess Stone Dust from the Silos.
Filquip was proud to supply the following equipment for this build:
Filquip has recently supplied some new Brewing Grain Conveying Systems. These two systems take the grain from tip in hoppers to their required destinations at the Brewery.
System 1 utilises a vacuum conveying system to move the grain from a Rotary Valve on the tip in station to a batching hopper with WAMFlo Dust Collector.
System 2 has a twin inlet WAM Horizontal Screw Conveyor with Vertical Screw Conveyor Combo allowing grain to be conveyed from the mill to the Grist Bin or grains to bypass the mill and be conveyed into the Grist Bin.
Filquip is pleased to introduce the new OLI External Electric High Frequency Vibrators for formworks and moulds. This new design allows precast plants to use quick release mounts that suit both OLI and Wacker vibrators. Therefore existing Wacker Vibrators can be replaced with our OLI series without modifications to your existing formwork and cradles.
High frequency electric vibrators are used in construction sites and in precast manufacturing plants to obtain high-quality products (exposed concrete), with excellent aesthetic results and weather resistance. The vibration is transmitted to the concrete indirectly through formworks or mould.
The OLI external electric vibrators are characterised by high operating efficiency and ease of installation. Specifically designed cradles reduce the time required for installing and repositioning.
