    HOW IT WORKS

    UNDERSTAND HOW THIELMANN CAN MEET YOUR IBC-BASED POWDER HANDLING REQUIREMENTS

     

    THIELMANN IBC containers and systems are fully customizable to ensure the optimal performance of your production line. THIELMANN engineering ensures seamless operations, from filling to packing, alongside easy-to-manage and fully hygienic cleaning processes.

    Iconos powder handling-02

    FILLING

    IBC filled with raw materials via either manual process or automated process managed by the control panel

    Iconos powder handling-03

    DOSING

    Accurate dosing of materials according to recipe using the correct valve to ensure precise measurements

    Iconos powder handling-04

    BLENDING

    Materials blended together using an agitator to suit the materials in question to ensure an evenly blended product

    Iconos powder handling-01

    PACKING

    End product dispensed into packaging container using the correct valve to eliminate bridging, rat-holing, and segregation

    Iconos powder handling-05

    CLEANING

    Easy cleaning processes for all IBCs, valves, and interface systems to ensure hygiene and eliminate the possibility of cross-contamination

    SOLUTIONS FOR COMMON PROBLEMS

    THIELMANN engineers carefully select the valve design that matches the type of materials being used to eliminate:
    bridging

    Bridging

    Bridging occurs when large particles interlock above the outlet resulting in restricted flow

    rat-roling

    Rat-holing

    Rat-holing occurs when the material at the sides of the IBC stagnates and a channel of fast-moving matter flows through the center

    segregation

    Segregation

    Segregation occurs when particles of different sizes or weights move through the discharge valve at an uneven rate

    containment

    Containment

    Our dosing systems are designed with valves and fittings that comply with Operator Exposure Limits (OELs) to protect personnel from dangerous chemicals, compounds, and fumes
