Pug Mill Mixer https://www.sunitconcranes.co.in/pug-mill-mixer.htm https://www.sunitconcranes.co.in/pug-mill-mixer.htm Tue, 16 Jul 2019 00:00:00 +0530 A pug mill is a machine in which clay or other materials are mixed into a plastic state or a similar machine for trituration of ore.Industrial applications are found in pottery, bricks, cement and some parts of the concrete and asphalt mixing processes. A pug mill may be a fast continuous mixer. A continuous pug mill can achieve a thoroughly mixed, homogeneous mixture in a few seconds, and the right machines can be matched to the right application by taking into account the factors of agitation, drive assembly, inlet, discharge, cost and maintenance. Mixing materials at optimum moisture content requires the forced mixing action of the pug mill paddles, while soupy materials might be mixed in a drum mixer. A typical pug mill consists of a horizontal boxlike chamber with a top inlet and a bottom discharge at the other end, 2 shafts with opposing paddles, and a drive assembly. Some of the factors affecting mixing and residence time are the number and the size of the paddles, paddle swing arc, overlap of left and right swing arc, size of mixing chamber, length of pug mill floor, and material being mixed.

Notable examples in Europe were implemented in the Stockholm area in Sweden and Legalese and Aldebaran in Spain. Another well known, yet rarely seen example is the one used in the utilidors in the Magic Kingdom theme park in Orlando, Florida.Products are moved through various tubes via air pressure, allowing for extra vertical versatility. Pneumatic conveyor are either carrier systems or dilute-phase systems carrier systems simply push items from one entry point to one exit point, such as the money-exchanging pneumatic tubes used at a bank drive-through window. Dilute-phase systems use push-pull pressure to guide materials through various entry and/or exit points. It is important to note that either air compressors, vacuums, or blowers can be used to generate the air flow. This will all depend on what the engineers think will be the most efficient and economical way of developing the system. Three basic systems that are used to generate high-velocity air stream.

Dust Suppression System https://www.sunitconcranes.co.in/dust-suppression-system.htm https://www.sunitconcranes.co.in/dust-suppression-system.htm Tue, 16 Jul 2019 00:00:00 +0530 Storing The DustAfter the material has been removed and transported from the dust collector, a storage facility must be used to permit disposal in efficient quantities. Elevated storage tanks or silos are normally used to permit loading of dry dust into enclosed trucks underneath.For wet dust collectors, the accumulation area is a settling pond. A settling pond may require considerable space. Since the storage area can only be decanted and dried out during the dry season, two settling ponds are usually needed. Also, most collected materials have very fine components that may seal the pond and prevent percolation.Removing Dust from HopperCollected dust must be removed continuously (while the dust collector is operating), Rotary air locks or Double dump valves should be used to maintain a positive air seal. If the material in the hopper has a bridging tendency, equipment such as bin vibrators, rappers, or air jets should be used.Conveying The DustAfter the dust has been removed from the collector, it must be transported to a central point for accumulation and ultimate disposal. Conveying of dust can be accomplished by the following methods: Use of screw conveyors Use of pneumatic conveying Use of air slides Use of Ash Conditioner/Pug mill to convey slurry Dust Extraction System https://www.sunitconcranes.co.in/dust-extraction-system.htm https://www.sunitconcranes.co.in/dust-extraction-system.htm Tue, 16 Jul 2019 00:00:00 +0530 We also undertake the designing, manufacturing, supply and installations of entire Dust Extraction Systems which entails the preparation of layout of the duct routing and fabrication of the ducts to fit site conditions.

Cast Basalt Lined Pipes https://www.sunitconcranes.co.in/cast-basalt-lined-pipes.htm https://www.sunitconcranes.co.in/cast-basalt-lined-pipes.htm Tue, 16 Jul 2019 00:00:00 +0530 Cast Basalt is a mineral of exceptionally high abrasion resistance, unlimited resistance to moisture, high compressive strength and resistance to virtually all acids and alkalis and is completely corrosion free. Cast basalt is produced by melting selected natural-broken into sizes of 20-50 mm in shaft furnaces at temperatures around 1300º C followed by casting at which the melted basalt forms uniform, pherolithic crystals, hence producing its typical physical properties in particular its exceptional hardness and wear-resistance. Cast basalt reaches a value of hardness of 8 (min) on the Moh’s hardness scale.   Areas of Application : Cast Basalt is the wear-protective material most frequently used, Offering an outstanding price/efficiency ratio and allowing a very economical preventive wear protection. Due to its extreme hardness. Cast  basalt is used for components subject to high abrasion or scuffing.However, it is marked by a certain sensitivity to impacts. Under normal service conditions, cast basalt withstand temperatures up to approx. +350º C or – 40º C.Sizes : Cast basalt products are manufacturedas tiles, formpieces, pipes and segments. Straight pipes are spun-cast available for nominal bores of 32 to 600mm with the wall thickness ranging from 20 to 30m and a standard length of 500 mm. Smaller nominal bores of straight pipes, pipe segments for radii of 400 to 3000 mm of various angles as well as special formpiece linings are predominantly sand-cast.Cast Basalt Lined piping : Cast basalt lined piping is exceptionally wear-resistant and is applied whenever highly abrasive materials are to be conveyed pneumatically or hydraulically through pipelines, such as compound material, coal, coal dust, coke, fly-ash, furnace dust, cement, lime, fine ores, slag, sand and other coarse or fine-granulated abrasive material.   Advantages : The hardness in case of Cast Basalts is very high as compared to mild steel. The resistance to flow in case of Cast Basalt is negligible; as cast basalt has got a work hardening property i.e.; the surface achieves a glassy finish as the material flows over it. The resistance to wear in case of cast basalt can be understood by the fact that the life in case of cast basalt is 4-5 times higher than that of mild steel. The average life in case of ash slurry lines lined with cast basalt is 18-20 years (with Imported Basalt) Cast basalt is nearly free from corrosion. Cast basalt is resistant to nearly all acids and alkalis except HF acid. The compressive strength in case of cast basalt is very high as compared to mild steel. The bulk density in case of cast basalt is very low as compared to mild steel hence it is very light in weight.
