Application

In the last production step, the finished pigment powders are pneumatically conveyed into packing silos. The conveying system generates very high dust levels and air movement inside the silos. To control the filling process, the levels in the silos need continuous monitoring. A high level detection switch is used for safety shutdown in case of overfilling. The pigment powder is then filled into sacks via the bottom outlet.
