Measures to powder bridging
In the previous article, we explained the main characteristics of materials. This time, we will introduce the countermeasures for bridges that we are mainly proposing and the recommended equipments.
Bridge breaker(Mixing blades)
We propose a lid with bridge breaker like a mixing blade. By slowly rotating the blades,materials bridging in the hopper will be broken and encouraged to flow smoothly. The shape and length of the blades are also manufactured according to the characteristics of the materials. This is one of the most effective measures against materials that causes bridging.
Twin screw feeder
It is effective for materials that tend to harden or that have adhesive properties. The twin screw feeder that rotates inside conveys the hardened materials while breaking them up.
It is a device in which a mixing blade and a hopper are integrated. In the case of feeding cotton or fiber, if the lumps are large to some extent, it is necessary to disassemble them before discharging. the material rotates together with the blades with normal mixing blades, often resulting in unraveling. This machine is very effective for materials like them
