The product can be blown into the silo by tanker or fed by a conveyor. Dust filters at the top of the silo are the initiated as the silo fills. Load cells at the base of the silo give and accurate indication of weight. Material bridging can be eliminated using dehumidifiers and Sodimate arch-breakers. The material is then conveyed to the mixing tanks and metered accurately using calibrated weigh hoppers. When the measured dose of powder enters the tank it is mixed into the liquid with electric mixers. Baffle plates inside the tank ensure a turbulent flow and homogeneous mix. Solenoid valve then initiates flow when mixing is complete.
