While we frequently supply a standard range of machines, we also understand the importance of offering flexibility to our customers through the customisation of our products. Sometimes a bespoke design is required to satisfy a niche set of process challenges. We recently manufactured this bespoke ATEX milling system with sack tip unloading for a customer requiring a customised solution.
This recent project featured a conical mill with sack tip loading for the safe and secure emptying of sacks, bags etc. The bespoke system included a number of specialist features, designed specifically for the customer’s process requirements.
The unit was ATEX compliant with ATEX Zone 20 internal / Zone 22 external and featured PT100 probes for temperature monitoring. The design also featured vacuum take-off for intergration with a conveying system and a level sensor to ensure product flow. The conical mill also included wet-in-place spray nozzles for simple and efficient cleaning of the interior mill housing. A silicone compensator between the sack tip and the conical mill was included to overcome any slight horizontal and vertical misalignment. Crucially, the sack tip station lid featured an inflatable seal, ensuring dust emissions were controlled during the unloading process.
This highly specialised conical milling system is another great example of how we are able to work alongside our customers to deliver machines tailored to their exact process need.
