xiloMix Silo Control
The purpose of the xiloMix Silo Control is to regulate and integrate all the functions of one or more silos/closed containers during the bulk materials loading process (powder, grain, etc.,) by a pneumatic conveyor. The primary functions of the system can be summed up as follows:
a) Monitoring pressure inside the silo during the loading process to avoid:
Both are harmful for the silo and its components plus they can also pollute the atmosphere and cause hazardous conditions for operators.
- any overpressure due to insufficient emission of air into the silo by the pneumatic conveyor.
- any vacuum generated by discharging the silo too quickly or incorrectly (through the pressure relief valve).
b) Centralized control of multiple silos during the loading process encompasses:
PECULIARITIES AND ADVANTAGES OF MIX NEW XILOMIX SILO CONTROL
- monitoring the connection of the truck to the silo, verifying the number of silos and monitoring the loading authorization
- maintaining the maximum and minimum gauge levels
- ensuring that the compressed air pressure is sufficient for cleaning the filter and feeding the pinch valve
- regulating the pressure inside silos
- balancing the loading and simultaneous process status controls of 32 silos
- untilizing one power supply for each silo meaning a reduction of risk (alarms always need a precise power supply)
- cleaning all filters automatically at the end of the process
The advantages of the new xiloMix Silo Control system are:
a) Easy use
MIX is able to supply many different components for the silo including: filters with a base ring; pressure relief valves; manholes; pinch valves; paddle level indicators; pressure reducers; connecting kits between the silo and truck for indication of connection; electronic measuring devices; and air reserve tanks.
c) Innovative Concept
e) Reduced maintenance and lasting reliability thanks to high quality materials.
