09.01.2023 Improved powder handling at John Hogg

Solids handling equipment manufacturer, Ajax Equipment, has supplied fuel marker dyes producer, John Hogg, with a mobile foldable sack-tip station to aid with the efficient discharge of powder solids from sacks into various reactor vessels.

The stainless steel sack-tip station is height adjustable, ensuring controlled discharge from the sack-tip’s chute to each of the plant’s reactor vessels; the station can also be operated face or side-on ensuring ease of use. When not in use the chute folds back onto the station’s mobile frame allowing the machine to be easily stored.

Ajax’s sack-tip station has made a huge improvement to the way we charge our blending vessels,” notes Stuart Dalrymple, engineering manager, John Hogg, “both in terms of safety and ease of operation. Heavy packs of powder are now easily handled giving the user a solid platform to work on without having to bend or reach. The chute and surface lip design contains the powder well, which reduces waste; while the station’s foldable parts and mobility mean we can move the equipment easily between vessels.”
