siloadmaxX® - Dust Free Container Loading System for Dry Bulk Materials

How it works

The process of fi lling containers using a siloadmaxX® mobile system is based on the concept of pneumatic conveying. Dry powder bulk material is conveyed into a receiving container fitted with a liner through a telescoping pipe built into the siloadmaxX® system. As the bulk material is loaded into the container, the conveying air and dust particles are drawn into an integrated filter receiver through the gap between the outer telescoping pipe and the inner conveying pipe. A rotary valve under the filter receiver discharges the dust back into the conveying cycle. The entire transfer process is a completely enclosed conveying system to prevent the release of dust into the environment. The conveying air needed for operation is supplied by an integrated blower when silos are being unloaded and by the truck compressor when material is being conveyed directly from a truck.

Loading logistics

Loading bulk material into container at producer’s plant

Loading bulk material into container at producer’s plant:

  • Position siloadmaxX® mobile system with hopper under silo
  • Position receiving container behind siloadmaxX® system
  • Start dust-free loading of material into container
Loading bulk material into container from bulk truck in port

Loading bulk material into container from bulk truck in port:

  • Position bulk truck in close proximity to siloadmaxX®
  • Connect bulk truck compressor to siloadmaxX® system
  • Start dust-free loading of material into container
Loading bulk material into container from ground pile

Loading bulk material into container from ground pile:

  • Position receiving container behind siloadmaxX® system
  • Use siloadmaxX® suction/pressure blower to load bulk material either directly from ground pile OR indirectly from hopper fi lled with material from ground pile

Advantages of the siloadmaxX® system

  • Up to 75% reduction in packing time by eliminating intermediate packaging steps including bag or big bag filling
  • Offers new logistic option for producers of bulk materials
  • Cost-effective international shipping and receiving
  • Efficient loading/unloading of containers; up to 50,000lbs in 25 minutes
  • Reduced transportation costs by using ISO containers instead of transporting trucks or rail cars
  • No special containers necessary; use available, empty ISO containers
  • ISO containers can be used as storage units
  • Environmentally friendly, completely enclosed loop conveying system prevents the release of dust into the environment
  • Efficient unloading when the ContainerQuickFlow (CQF) container unloading system is used
  • Proven technology for mobile use in heavy industrial applications

ContainerQuickFlow (CQF) unloading system

The ContainerQuickFlow (CQF) container unloading system is designed to handle sticky and powdery bulk solids without releasing dust into the environment. The CQF unit is connected to the full container with the aid of a fork lift. The container is tilted to a 45 – 47° angle as required for the dry bulk solid material to fl ow through the large opening in the liner that extends across the full width of the container, and into a screw feeder. The material is then pneumatically pressure conveyed with the aid of an integrated blow through rotary valve into the destination silo. The CQF unloading system is available to fi t a variety of containers. An optional compressed air pulse unit is recommended for applications where material tends to bridge.
