Rotating homogenization hopper type TRH

The rotating homogenization hopper type TRH is used to collect a sample from a primary sampler, to blend it so as to obtain a homogeneous sample at the discharge of the unit.

This equipment is installed below a primary sampling system and operates in the following manner :

During the primary sampler emptying process, the lower valve is closed and the hopper is filled. A paddle fixed with a rubber scraper rotates inside the vessel. The movement causes the powder sample that is contained inside the hopper to blend. At the end of the cycle, the upper valve is closed and the lower valve is opened so as to allow the sampled product to flow out. The paddle is rotated, so as to ensure that all material inside the hopper is evacuated properly, so as to avoid product cross contamination.

Technical Data :

  •  Conical hopper to improve the blending and the discharge of sample

  •  Welded profiled steel structure

  •  Flange attachment for product introduction and discharge

  •  Self-aligning ball bearings for support of the drive shaft

  •  Rotating paddle with Neoprene scrapper attached via a flange, that homogenizes the product

  •  Worm gear motor

  •  Leak tight discharge valve using metal against metal sealing

  •  Pressure balancing valve using a flexible rubber cover

  •  Access panel on discharge arrangement to access the pressure balancing valve
