Twin, compact pressure vessels from Gericke, USA (Somerset, NJ) permit high capacity conveying in facilities constrained by low ceilings, tight footprints, existing equipment, and other restrictions on space. Set side by side, the twin vessels are loaded with powders, pellets, granules and other bulk materials from a single point via a diverter valve to provide the same total conveying capacity as a single, larger pressure vessel while fitting neatly into limited spaces. The compact approach is ideal when retrofitting, converting, or upgrading a conveying system for an existing process.
Proven in transferring food, petfood, chemical, pharmaceutical, and other materials and ingredients, the twin vessel design eliminates rotating parts and operates with very low amounts of conveying gas to minimize wear, extend filter life, and reduce maintenance needs, along with the need for frequent worker access in tight spaces. The twin pressure vessels are compatible with Gericke's STP 61 dense phase pneumatic conveying system controller and offered in an optional hygienic version for transferring milk powder, active pharmaceutical ingredients, and other materials that require extra protection from contamination.
