Silo – discharges
CONVEYING MECHANISMS AND DISCHARGE DEVICES
EXCELLENT AVAILABILITY AND OPERATIONAL SAFETY
Horizontal silo discharge
with long service life
The horizontal screw from the technology workshop of Scheuch LIGNO’s subsidiary LBH GmbH is the ideal discharge system for silo diameters of up to 10 metres. With its uncomplicated installation and low maintenance requirements, it is the number one choice for many satisfied customers in the craft and industrial sectors.
The horizontal discharge device is installed in the centre of the silo. The screw uses forced feed to move horizontally across the silo floor around its own axis. It is possible to connect up to four screw conveyors or to feed several boilers and presses.
With many years of experience in silo technology, Scheuch LIGNO GmbH and LBH GmbH complement one another perfectly. The knowledge and expertise of both partners flow into the constant further development and optimisation of new, practical products for the wood sector. As a result, both strong partners are already equipped for the challenges of tomorrow.
- Discharge capacity: up to 100 m3/h
- Silo diameter: up to 10 m
- Wood chips up to G 50
- Possible to connect up to four screw conveyors
- 8 mm continuous welded screw blade
When it comes to ensuring availability and operational safety in dedusting plants, discharge devices and conveying mechanisms are just as crucial as fans and filter systems. For decades now, Scheuch has been producing rotary valves, conveying screws, dosage devices and pendulum flaps in-house.
Extraction, filtration and material discharge devices thus form a single unit that consists of sophisticated and time-tested components. All conveying mechanisms are suitable for use in explosive, dust-laden atmospheres as defined in Directive 2014/34/EU (ATEX).
Discharging and locking with rotary valves
Rotary valves are used to discharge dust, chipboard shavings and fibrous conveyed goods, and as shut-off devices. A range of designs are available to suit various requirements, with throughput volumes to accommodate every case.
Scheuch rotary valves can also be delivered as type-tested protective systems (ignition and flame penetration resistant) for explosion decoupling purposes.
(Repetition required?) When it comes to ensuring availability and operational safety in dedusting plants, discharge devices and conveying mechanisms are just as crucial as fans and filter systems. Extraction, filtration and material discharge devices thus form a single unit.
For individual needs
Tube-type and trough screws are used to continuously transport bulk materials, at throughput volumes of 2 to 500 mġ/h and with screw diameters between 200 and 1000 mm.
