Success #4

Shipping Terminal Silo Discharges Bin-Bottoms Consistently

Shipping terminal had a large quantity of stagnant cement in the bottom of their silo, and discharged erratically,
if at all when inventory was low.  Additionally, stocks were low and the terminal's next ship was delayed. 
The TEI Fluidizer was used to keep the cement flowing and prevent the terminal from running out of stock.
Results:

Reports show the TEI Fluidizer extracted an additional 3 feet of cement more than the existing system could remove. 
This extrapolates to 3,600 tons for the entire silo.

 

Graph on left below shows back pressure on the dense-phase pneumatic discharge system without the TEI Fluidizer, and
on the right, using the TEI Fluidizer. 
What is more impressive, is that the PMT was typically only initiated once normal discharge had ceased !

Effectively PMT decreases cement viscosity allowing more cement flow into the discharge pod, ensuring fully load transfers on
each blow-down,  thus increasing efficiency and decreasing operating costs.  Additionally, lower flow viscosity means
less gradient (4 deg. v/s 8deg.)is needed to induce a fluidized flow, allowing air-sides to fully drain.
