Silo Air Flow Controller – AFC

Silo Air Flow Controller AFC – Reduction of pulsating material discharge

For all silos which do not have an expansion chamber technology it comes with high filling conditions to the problem that aeration air cannot escape by the material column. The consequence is a to high fluidisation of the material and fluctuating pressure conditions at the outlet. This leads frequently to a pulsating material discharge.

The Claudius Peters Air Flow Controller – AFC represents for this the suitable system in order to reduce the material fluctuations. In combination with a flow control gate with controlled function this system can be integrated optimally into existing plants. The Claudius Peters AFC consists of 3 main components:

  • Adjustable blow-off flap
  • Electronic push button switch
  • Controller

Storage Silo CC

The storage silo CC is a silo type for fluidisable mineral bulk materials.

CC stands for “conventional cone” silo which is in general designed for silo diameters of 6 – 14 m. Standard aeration bottoms 3.5m, 5.5m and 7.5m are available.

The standard design is suitable for the storage of

  • Easy flowing bulk materials, like cement or raw meal
  • Hardly flowing bulk materials like fly ash

Other bulk materials like gypsum, quick lime, lime hydrate and others can also be stored in the storage CC silo.

Silo Aeration Modification

Conversion SET for Claudius Peters Silos with mechanical air distribution systems

Claudius Peters Silos of former construction types have been equipped with an air distributing system with motorised rotating distributor. Modern Claudius Peters Silo aeration bottoms are equipped with air distribution systems controlled by electro-pneumatically actuated intermediate flaps with position indication.
