Strong dust generation during the filling process

Application

Starch is an important additive to increase the strength of the paper. The raw starch is stored in tall, narrow silos. Filling is carried out pneumatically, generating large amounts of dust. They are discharged into the starch slurry production system beneath the silo and the resulting slurry is pumped into the starch cookers by eccentric pumps. For optimal control of the silo filling process, a reliable level measurement is required. To prevent the eccentric pump from running dry, an in-line switch is needed upstream of the pump.

Your benefit

Reliable
Reliable function even during filling
Cost effective
Dry run protection prevents failures or damage to the eccentric pumps
User friendly
Easy alignment via optional adjustable sealing gaskets
