Mobile bucket elevator, Packing system and Check-weigher for potassium nitrate

Project: Mobile bucket elevator, Packing system and Check-weigher for handling potassium nitrate.

Customer need: Our client is a company of Chilean origin with branches in Mexico, which required a proposal for handling and bagging Potassium Nitrate, with a capacity of 20 ton / hr. The system required to be mobile to be used in different points of the plant. In addition to this, he wanted to check the packages that passed 50 kg, reject them and let the packages with the correct weight go through.

Bega Engineering:  An ideal bucket elevator system was designed so as not to damage the granulated products, with an efficiency of 20 ton / hr. An independent packaging equipment was proposed, which consisted of a material receiving hopper, a bag packing machine. In addition to an electronic weighing system with flying mechanism, to reject the packages that exceeded or were below the allowed weight. All this with manufacture in stainless steel 304.
