    TAILORED SOLUTIONS

    YOU START WITH AN IDEA. WE MAKE IT HAPPEN

    Here at THIELMANN, we don't believe in 'one size fits all'. Your operations are unique, your production line should be also.

    Whether you operate in the food, chemical, or pharmaceutical industry, we have the expertise to fully customize, equip, and integrate a production line for your plant. Starting with the evaluation of the product blend formulation and flow characteristics of your materials, our engineers will configure a system that provides:

    • A smooth workflow
    • Safe transport and storage of all materials, both hazardous and non-hazardous
    • Dosing system automation for precise, repeatable results at scale
    • Safety interlocks to confirm the exact docking of containers at each stage
    • The correct interfaces for an integrated solution
    • The right mixing solution for your materials, whether a tumble mixer or stirring unit
    • The optimal cone valve for your materials for zero segregation and rat-holing
    • Dispensing and discharging equipment and processes that eliminate cross-contamination
    • Precision engineered container systems that deliver the highest standard of quality and safety
    • Validatable precision
    • Hygienic, cleanable, and durable containers made from Type 304 or Type 316, Type 316L stainless steel or Hastelloy, and 6-moly alloy

    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 the correct agitator to suit the materials in use and 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 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 no flow
    rat-roling

    Rat-holing

    Rat holing occurs when material against the sides of the IBC remains stagnant and a channel of quickly moving materials flows from the center
    segregation

    Segregation

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

    Containment

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