AMCOL Minerals Chooses Spiroflow to Handle Moisture Sensitive Chemicals
AMCOL Minerals Europe won a contract that involved mixing minerals with chemicals. One of the main chemical ingredients is supplied in bulk bags.
It is, according to Technical Manager, John Withenshaw, “Super moisture-sensitive and it is critical to the process that it is maintained in a dry condition before being introduced into the mixer.”
Therefore they required a Bulk Bag Unloader that would protect the product from the atmosphere as well as preventing the escape of dust and spills into the working environment. The Unloader also had to be capable of weighing out the correct quantity of chemical for each batch.
This weighing capability also needed to take into account that there is sometimes part of a load from an almost depleted bag and the balance from a new bag.
