We offer continuous Drum Conditioners for pilot plant or small commercial size operations. The units are utilized in mineral, chemical, industrial, and environmental processes. They basically are designed to gently mix solids with reagents or liquids in preparation for subsequent process activity. Normally, they are selected to handle solids which are (1) too coarse for economic suspension by propeller agitators, (2) deslimed solids which are difficult to suspend in conventional propeller agitators, (3) break down under propeller action, (4) where it is desirable to gently "lay on reagent coatings on the surface of solid particles, (5) homogeneously mix two or more slurries which are difficult to mix due to gravity or size differentials, (6) slurrying or quenching dry or heated solids, and (7) leaching solids with acid liquors.
Typical examples are as follows:
|Drum||Fabricated of heavy mild steel plate with angle type lifters. A center guide ring is provided for contact with thrust idlers.|
|Feed assembly||Heavy cast steel tapered feed pipe assembly with support stand.|
|Discharge chute||Provided to collect discharge product.|
|Drum rollers||Drum rotates on pneumatic rubber tires.|
|Gust rollers||Heavy set of urethane or hard rubber thrust rollers maintain alignment of rotating drum.|
|Support bearings||The drum roller shafts are supported on six self-aligning pillow block bearings.|
|Reducer||Enclosed running-in-oil worm gear reducer is conveniently mounted beneath the drum area,|
|Motor||Is totally enclosed fan-cooled 3, 60, 230/460 Volt and of the "C" face flanged type for bolting to the reducer.|
|Drive||Roller chain type including chain guard.|
|Paint assembly||Unit is rustoleum primed, green enamel finished, and shipped completely assembled.|
NOTE: Units available with wetted parts, rubber or elastomer lined, or of stainless steel or other alloys.
Also, units can be furnished with modifications to suit customer's requirements.
