LOADING SOLUTIONS

Stockpile
Loading

When stockpiling dry bulk solid materials, stockpile size, spout length/retraction height, and handled material characteristics/service conditions are the primary concerns. The Vortex Loading Spout (also known as loading chutes) can be used in tandem with accessories designed to contain fugitive dusts and prevent dusting to atmosphere.

Ideal application: Stockpiling dry bulk solid materials.

Tech Specs

Spout Type

Stacking, cone-in-cone

Loading Type

Open and/or enclosed loading applications

Conveyance Type

Gravity drop in the presence of slight negative pressure

Material Temperatures

250°F | 120°C for standard spout, with modifications that allow up to 400°F | 205°C

Extended Travel

Spout lengths will vary, based on models and application. Contact us to discuss custom sizing options.

Overall Height (Retracted)

Overall height (retracted) will vary, based on models and application. Designed to be low profile, paying mind to clearance available overhead and extended travel required to reach the necessary vessel(s).

Considerations

Standard options are available. Some Vortex Loading Spouts may require additional design considerations to ensure their success in a given application.

Key Features

  • A stacking, cone-in-cone spout design can be used in tandem with a Vortex In-Line Filtration System at the material feed inlet. The In-Line Filtration System is designed to collect fugitive dusts by means of air withdrawal. The outer sleeve is intended to contain fugitive dusts. Fugitive dusts are captured in pleated polyester filter cartridges. Throughout the loading process, automatic reverse pulse jets inject compressed air to purge the captured dusts back into the load.

  • A telescoping, tube-in-tube spout design can be used in tandem with a Vortex Discharge Filtration System at the point of discharge. The Discharge Filtration System is designed to collect fugitive dusts by means of high volume exhaust blowers. Fugitive dusts are captured in pleated polyester filter cartridges. Throughout the loading process, automatic reverse pulse jets inject compressed air to purge the captured dusts back into the load. The purpose of a Discharge Filtration System is to better collect fugitive dusts originating near the point of discharge.

  • A Dust Control Skirt encompasses the peak of the material pile to address dusting to atmosphere.

  • A Material Level-Sensing Device complements an Auto-Raise System to automate the retraction process. Throughout the loading process, the spout maintains its proximity between the point of discharge (i.e. the outlet scavenger) and the material pile – even as the pile grows. Because of the outlet scavenger’s close proximity to the material pile, dust control is enhanced. The automated retraction process also keeps the outlet scavenger from becoming buried in the material pile, which in turn prevents material build-up in the spout.
