A pendulum bucket elevator is the obvious choice for gentle and flexible conveying of bulk products, but when it comes to fine powders and very abrasive products this is still a challenge. Now Simatek Bulk Systems introduces a new Forced Feeding System which – in combination with other initiatives – makes pendulum bucket elevators very suited for conveying complex powders with poor flow properties, as well as being fragile, abrasive or explosive. By adding a screw feeder module to the patented Simatek Drum Feeder it is possible to secure a high filling degree of the elevator buckets. This feeding system is based on individual batch feeding of the elevator buckets without product spillage. Simatek Bulk Systems is represented by MATEC massagoed techniek
