Thread: Shiploading Open Hatch Dust Control

  1. shiploading open hatch dust control

    I would like to know of others experience in estimating the design de-ducting quantity for open hatch loading of bulk materials...

    We load 2000tph of cement clinker via a telescopic chute - 15m max. fall, chute dia, is 700 to 1150mm. The chute has an outer bellows dia 1600mm. BD is 1500kg/m3, belt speed is 2.2m/sec, 1800mm wide, 610mm dia pulley.

    Clinker temp is 150oC

    The boom dust collector has been thru several upgrades inv. bag technology but we are back to square one.

    Hence, we have new bag tech. but we need to revists the de-dusting qty that should be used as the design basis. Structural loading is a limiting factor as well...

    The Sabine method - most common for belt conv. transfers - over estimated the qty in my mind by a gross margin.

    Comments/suggestions welcome.
