In conventional applications, the Lifting and Tipping Device empties the bulk material in one gush, e.g. into downstream feeders. During the tipping process, blockages or damage to sensitive products can occur, due to the drop height. The latest Lifting and Tipping Devices can be fitted with an integrated dosing feeder. The feeder acts as a load pickup for the container. During the tipping process, the container empties its content slowly onto the feeder. Once the discharge position is reached, the vibratory drive is turned on to gently convey the bulk material into the downstream process. This type of feeding technique can be used for galvanized drums, sand blasting plants, packaging machines and many other applications.
The food manufacturer Driessen Food Extrusion located in Deurne, Netherlands processes mixed, powdered, plant-based proteins to high quality ingredients for the food industry. In order to modernize their production and increase productivity, Driessen Food Extrusion is planning to build a new production line. JOEST received a contract last month to provide large parts of this new production line. For the processing of extruded proteins and production high quality coatings, the #JOESTeam will design and manufacture a complete drying plant. The planned drying system consists of a Fluidized Bed Dryer with processing-, heating-, cooling- and used-air systems as well as a Spiral Conveyor. The system will be delivered in spring 2023.
