24.04.2017 Preassembly of mixing installation ensures reliable operation and fast commissioning

Dinnissen Process Technology (see above) also reports that it has recently built a complete mixing plant for a German client, which includes multiple bulk bag unloading of raw materials. The installation was destined for a new plant in Asia and the client wanted absolute assurance that the system would work smoothly with the somewhat sticky raw materials involved. It was also necessary to set up the facility in Asia in a very short period of time. The solution presented by Dinnissen consisted of a modular construction in a separate hall at its factory in Sevenum. The complete installation, 8m high, was assembled in a fully operational condition including wiring and controls. It consisted of a supply line with six bulk bag unloading stations, with the raw material dispensed through a Dinnissen Feeder Valve with loss-in-weight dosing and transfer to a Pegasus mixer by a bucket elevator.  The end product was filled into bulk bags or containers.
All the process steps had already been tested in the tendering phase by Dinnissen. This also included the FAT (factory acceptance test) in the Netherlands, with four recipes and 20 runs, providing a very thorough practical trial. The entire installation, complete with platforms and stairs, was then disassembled and packed in seven 40ft containers and shipped. Upon arrival in Asia, the installation was assembled and commissioned by employees of Dinnissen’s Asian partner and a Dutch supervisor from Dinnissen. This modular concept and a FAT in the Netherlands means the Dutch manufacturer can offer customers not only 100% certainty that an installation will operate according to specification, but also significant time savings during assembly and commissioning on site.
