When handling larger amounts of material, you will need a conveying system to transport the material waste from the filter unit to a container, silo or other collection form.
Moldow offers two types of conveying and material transport systems:
- Chain Conveyors for both horizontal or vertical transport of waste material from the filter to storage
- Pneumatic Transfer Systems with traditional round ducting and transport fan
Energy Efficient Chain Conveyor System
The Moldow Chain Conveyor System is an environmentally friendly and energy saving solution for horizontal or vertical transport of chips from the filter to e.g. a silo. The system is an alternative to the traditional Pneumatic transfer system and it uses only about 1/10 of the energy that a pneumatic system uses.
The chain conveyor system is built up of modules with different lengths and bending radius. The conveyor system is supplied in two models: type 450 for handling up to 60 m3/h (35 ft3/min) of waste, and type 650 for up to 100 m3/h (60 ft3/min).
The chips are transported by means of a simple drag chain in an enclosed rectangular duct.
- Low power consumption
- Low noise level
- High capacity
- ATEX zone 21 inside as option
Dilute Pneumatic Conveying System
Moldow has installed a large number of extraction systems which utilize dilute pneumatic conveying principles.
A Dilute Pneumatic conveyor is established using traditional round ducting and fans. The system can be used to transport waste from the filter unit to a silo or container. Since the system uses air to transport waste, there are limits to the amount of waste which can be transported. Typically the system is used to transport light to moderate amounts of waste.
Dilute pneumatic conveyors are very easy and cost effective to establish when compared to Chain Conveyor systems, however they are far less energy efficient.
