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.

Craig Winfield, Project Manager at Atomising Systems Limited, shared “We’ve used Ajax on several occasions for screw feeders and mass flow hoppers and so when this new requirement came up, we were happy to work with Ajax again and have not been disappointed.”

“Ajax has worked with Atomising Systems successfully on many projects, so we were happy to provide a new system hopper and feeder design, updated to meet their new capacity requirements and modest pressure needs,” stated Eddie McGee, managing director, Ajax Equipment. “Ajax’s screw feeders are used across a wide range of industries around the world to ensure reliable powder handling from a few grams per minute to hundreds of tonnes per hour.”
