Ajax Equipment, Bolton, England, UK, reports it has supplied Atomising Systems Limited, based in Sheffield, UK, with an ATEX-rated feed hopper and mass flow screw feeder for metal powder handling, expected to expand production capacity at Atomising Systems’ facility.
The powder handling system is based on a proven design previously supplied to Atomising Systems with increased robustness to allow for the modest pressure rating required. To ensure mass flow, Ajax has incorporated a specially designed screw feeder below a suitably stiffened two-stage plane flow hopper, which provides a consistent feed.
