Transfer fumed silica safely, dust-free

January 5, 2009

There’s a new way to convey fumed silica. Using a specially designed Bag Dump Station, the fumed silica is transferred to the customer’s process safely and dust-free. The Bag Dump Station is equipped with an integral dust collector to trap any airborne particles and is complete with pulse filter cleaning for maximum efficiency. A fluidizing/lump breaking mechanism is also included to keep the fumed silica flowing. The fumed silica is transferred using a powder pump designed for use with low bulk density powders.
