SN Engineering has recently completed the design & supply of a triple Big Bag discharge system for a leading international chemical company. Supply also included the supply of a specialist built MCC which included for individual screw feed variable speed controllers & had to take into account the high temperatures & humidity of the final destination.
Special inverters ( operational up to 50°C ) had to be sourced and then accommodated into a suitably sized control cubicle c/w cooling fans.
Installation was supported by one of SN Engineering's in-house site engineers to ensure quick & correct installation of the equipment whilst utilising site local labour. Commissioning was successfully carried out within 4 days of arriving @ site & commencing installation.
Reputation as 1st class valve supplier grows . . .
SN Engineering have recently completed the supply of 100+ heavy duty wafer valves. Ranging in sizes from 65 to 150mm , mostly supplied with electro-pneumatic actuation. SN Engineering were awarded the contract, against stiff competition, due to there continued reliability of supply and proven record of meeting strict & short deadlines.
All electro-pneumatic units were fitted with quick set limit switch assemblies, further enhanced, with large easy Open > Closed visual indicators.
Manufactured from Cast Iron, finished in plastic enhanced paint to ensure longevity in the field. Discs were of St St..with EPDM seals
SN Engineering were called on for their proven expertise in dust filtration, and commissioned to design & build 2 special 62m² dust plants, seen here after manufacture & testing, awaiting packing for shipment.
Criteria was to design the units to fit within existing footprints & mountings yet maximise the filtration area. Using latest CAD & 3D proofing ensured unit sizes were optimised and allowed for the fitting of sufficient filtration cells to give a 50%+ uplift on the clients current units, which were now undersized due to additional plant coming on stream.
Units were manufactured using heavy gauge steel, laser profiled for high accuracy & ease of assembly and finished shot blasted ( Sa2.5 ) and powder coated throughout for extra durability & longevity. Control of the cleaning is via our latest System series auto controllers, Sys 2008. These have been developed taking into account clients feedback & requests over the past few years. Still maintaining the ease of setting up & diagnostic interrogation remained uppermost to any changes & although the display facia has changed, larger ; brighter & easier to read, the functionality has remained the same.
The PCB has been designed to accept additional plug in devices to accommodate a myriad of extras. Two of the most popular being that of a duplicate ( second ) display that can be mounted remotely from the filter…..say in a plants control room!!....this allows for easy analysis of the filters operation without having to be in attendance at the actual filter …………this leads nicely onto another popular feature….. again a second display but this time viewed via a nominated computer screen with the additional benefit, within this option, of not only being able to monitor the units performance but clients can change any settings via their computer rather than having to go to the main panel mounted on the filter. Both of these options are being well received by clients who say........... “ the facility to monitor our dust plants from one central location has proved invaluable, not to mention the health & safety advantages of not having to needlessly have our personnel entering potentially hazardous areas……we will be requesting this function on all new/replacement units going forward ” .....................
Shown loaded & ready to go, accompanied by 2 other units – 1 x 24m² & 1 x 48m².
Also seen on the trailer is a specially commissioned 407ØHeavy DutyVertical screw conveyor c/w 30kW reduction unit & fully guarded chain drive.
New for Old ensures safer & cleaning working area . . . . . . .
SN Engineering’s Series 7000 Outloader ensures dust free loading area is reinstated. Called upon for the in-house knowledge of loading dust extraction ensured a turnkey project could be undertaken by one company professionally & with the minimal of disruption. Clients brief was to bring their road tanker loading station up to 21st century and complaint with latest legislation.
A very restrictive operative area meant that access to & around the tanker loading point was of paramount importance, no more so than for the safety of the personnel operating the plant.
SN Engineering immediately undertook to redesign & alter the actual loading area.
1st on the list was to replace the narrow drop down platform with one some 2+ times wider ensuring ease & safe access onto the tanker on the left hand side.
2nd area addressed was the actual loading facility….a Series 7000 Outloader was commissioned that had a 40% smaller footprint, which in conjunction with a more compact bellow, and a higher connection point ( a special flange was manufactured that allowed the clients slide valve to fit directly to the Outloader – effectively lifting the unit some 225mm ) thus giving a greater & safer area for the operative to access & open the tanker hatch…… something that had been done away from this area in the past, compounding the potential for an accident.
The final part of the upgrade was to design & fit a dedicated dust extraction filter & returns system to ensure the whole plant was closed loop and maintained the goal of dust free loading.
Although limited for space within the tower a SNE-RJC0325 ( 32m² ) wardrobe unit c/w hopper & returns screw ensured the plants compliance. Even the extraction fan was encased within an acoustic enclosure to minimise noise pollution.
