Keep product moving by preventing buildup, bridging and ratholing.
When your bottom line depends on moving product efficiently through your plant, obstructions in the flow of material can bring profitability to a complete stop. When working with bulk solids, especially in high-moisture environments, the material flow characteristics can change. This causes buildup in chutes and hoppers, contributing to bridging and ratholing, reducing or stopping material flow.
In addition to the reduction in profitability, material obstructions can pose a safety risk for workers when they attempt to manually loosen the obstruction. This typically involves beating the equipment with a hammer or poking and/or air lancing.
