Chemicals

The chemicals industry provides the building blocks for companies manufacturing paints, pigments, coatings, adhesives, resins, consumer products, and foods.

This industry continues to focus on debottlenecking projects involving bulk material handling in silos, bins, transfer chutes, and conveyors to maximize plant efficiency, throughput capacity, and safe operation.

Common Chemicals Industry Challenges

When feeding powders to reactors or conveying wet cake from a centrifuge to a dryer, poor material flow can result in throughput limitations, non-uniform product, or dust emissions/spillage.  Reliable solids handling at chemicals plants will improve unit operations involving blending, extrusion, pneumatic or mechanical conveying, and heating/cooling.  Reliable powder flow and a first-in, first-out vessel discharge pattern (mass flow) is desired to minimize cross-contamination of batches and ensure process efficiency.
