Filquip is a provider Suck and Blow Pneumatic Conveying Skids and has recently completed a trial Suck and Blow System for handling popping corn kernels.

The system utilises a Filquip Vacuum Bulk Bag Loader with a  modified outlet to suit a Venturi piece for the positive pressure blowing part of the system. The trial measured bulk density of the popping corn kernels was 904kg/m3 The system conveyed 22kg in 30 seconds using the 3″ Pipe with RV02 Rotary Valve and 7.5kw Blower setup.

The system has the following features:

  • Low profile design compared with other trailer mounted suck and blow systems.
  • Skid mounted for ease of movement around the plant/site with a forklift.
  • Fabricated Skid Frame can be mounted on a trailer.
  • Integrated control panel with hopper overfill shutdown to avoid line blockages.
  • Automatic Reverse Pulse Cleaned Dust Collector for the Filter Receiver to reduce maintenance and keep product out of the blower blades.
