Moving High Temperature Chemical Catalyst
Overview / Challenge
A chemical company contacted Carrier Vibrating Equipment for help designing a system to transport an extremely high temperature chemical catalyst immediately after it had been processed in a rotary calciner. With the extremely high-temperature product, the customer needed a solution that would safely and efficiently convey the catalyst. Cleanability and space were also at the forefront of the conversation.
- Transport 1,500°F high-temperature chemical catalyst
- Eliminate product cross-contamination
- Employee safety
- Must fit in a small footprint
- Easily cleaned
Carrier Vibrating Equipment recommended installing two vibratory spiral elevators to meet the customer’s requirements. Each vibrating spiral elevator was designed with 4” sidewalls and enclosed in a stationary metal shroud for additional operational safety. Spiral elevators conveyed the catalyst upward while cooling to a safe temperature. Read the entire case study by downloading below.
