AW Process is the Manufactures Rep. for DCL in Florida and the Caribbean. DCL manufactured Loading Spouts lead the way in innovative use of technological advancements to provide dust-free loading of a wide range of dry, dusty materials, at loading rates up to 6,000 STPH.
Aeration conveyors (Air Slides) are used to gravity-convey powders by passing low-pressure air through a porous membrane media and into the bed of the material being handled.
You can handle a large variety of materials with aeration conveyors regardless of their abrasive nature or bulk density. The criteria are particle size, moisture content and temperature. Generally a product should have a particle distribution of 100% through a 20 mesh screen. Moisture content should be below 1% and temperature can not exceed 1200 degrees Fahrenheit [649˚ C].
The absence of moving parts and low power requirements make air gravity conveying the most economical way to convey fine materials over short or long distances.

Laidig is recognized throughout the world for their rugged, high-quality systems. Laidig excels in providing customized solutions handling materials with poor material flow characteristics or other special requirements. We are a global leader in designing and building reclaimers to automate the unloading of dry bulk materials. The reliability and sophistication of Laidig's reclaimers have proved to be invaluable for industrial, process-driven applications in industries such as food processing, meals, pulp & paper, wood pelleting, biomass, power, biofuels, ethanol, mining & minerals, cement, and many more.
Tank Connection construction crews installed a Barge-to-Truck transloading terminal with a 127’ tall by 41.5’ diameter RTP (rolled, tapered panel) bolted Cement Storage Silo at the Barcadera Port in Aruba. The facility was designed to store and transfer cement from oceanic barges. Prior to the installation of this facility, cement was delivered to the island in large bags, prone to product contamination. Now, 750’ of underground pneumatic conveying pipe stretches from the barge offload point in the Barcadera port into the cement silo.
Reliability in operation, high conveying capacities, long lifetimes and low running costs are what make bucket elevators from AUMUND stand out. Bucket elevators can be designed with either a forged central chain or a belt, depending on the material to be conveyed and the application.
Aumund Chain Bucket Elevator are equipped with a forged central chain and are designed to convey all kinds of coarse, hot or abrasive bulk materials. Even operating 24/7, they can convey over 900 m3/h at centre distances of over 30 m.
AUMUND developed the BWD Double Bucket Elevator as a means for tackling conveying capacities of over 1,800 m3/h. This bucket elevator can be designed with centre distances of over 90 m and is a combination of two standard bucket elevators, each with a rear central chain. Both bucket strands run on a common drive shaft which is supported in plummer block bearings and driven by double drives.
Automated production processes often require stockpiling or blending of raw materials, additives and intermediates. Bottlenecks in material flow to or from hoppers, storage halls, stockpiles or silos can hinder plant productivity, therefore the right design of the conveying and storage technology is paramount.
AUMUND proposes a range of pan conveyors specifically tailored to individual applications and to the characteristics of the material to be transported:
The Samson® Material Feeder from AUMUND is a discharge conveyor which receives bulk materials directly from trucks or other vehicles and unloads rail wagons or front-end loaders. A flexible solution, it is chosen in many industries and applications all over the world for its technical benefits and its cost-effectiveness
Chain conveyors are generally used where sticky bulk materials such as chalk, gypsum, clay or raw coal are to be extracted from a hopper. For such applications AUMUND recommends the PKF armoured chain conveyor.
For extraction of filter dust or additives the AUMUND TKF Drag Chain Conveyor Type LOUISE is often used. As this machine conveys bulk material in a closed trough, the impact on the environmental is minimised.
In many branches of industry bulk materials are conveyed, stored and unloaded. Some of these materials have difficult and varying flow properties. Therefore, the right design and consideration of the silos or hoppers is paramount in the choice of discharge equipment.
Major parameters for the design of discharge systems are bulk density, moisture content, proportionate particle size ranges, temperature, angle of repose and wall friction angle as well as information about the proportion of dust in the material, the abrasiveness and corrosivity.
is an excellent solution for discharge of silos or bins where sticky materials with challenging flow properties are stored. A logarithmically shaped discharge arm moves the material to the central discharge outlet. It extracts the material from underneath the full bulk material column whilst at the same time undercutting at the external silo wall to avoid bulk material build-up and idle zones.
