Application possibilities

Our inflow impact dome has been successfully used for years in the pneumatic transport of glass shards. The function principle of the impact dome lies in the fact that directly behind the inlet nozzle, an expansion reduces the speed of the conveying flow. The inflow impact dome is lined with cast basalt or Kalcor. Part of the conveyed material falls directly into a tank. Another part is hurled against a rubberised impact plate. Some of the bulk material adheres to the impact plate and thus serves as wear protection. The impact plate is easy to replace. The so-called dual impact dome is a special variation. “Dual” because it has two inlets allowing the glass batches as well as glass shards to be conveyed simultaneously to a preliminary bunker. This permits the optimal mixing of both products without having to feed the glass shards into the batch mixer first.
