ceramic lined drop box





When conveying product pneumatically into a tank or silo, the product needs to fall into the tank and separate from the conveying air in which it had been suspended. The Bulk Technik drop box is fitted onto a nozzle in the silo roof, allowing the powder to fall down in a central position on the silo roof thereby optimizing the silo volume - the material will settle based on the product's angle of repose. The conveying air is extracted from the silo via a dust handling system.


The drop boxes are supplied in sizes ranging from 150 NB to 300 NB and are flanged according to SABS 1123-1000/3. Other flanges can be provided on request.


For very abrasive materials we supply drop boxes that are ceramic lined.
