Title:
METHOD AND DEVICE FOR THE CONTINUOUSLY-CONTROLLED DISCHARGE OF SOLIDS
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2005105288
Kind Code:
A8
Abstract:
It is known that poorly-flowing solid materials can lead to an inhomogeneous mass flow of the solid across the discharge cross-section of a silo. If the solid in the silo is also heated or cooled the uneven mass flow can lead, for example, to local variations in temperature and/or hence to varying product properties. According to the invention, the above problem may be resolved, whereby a method and a discharge device for a solids silo and a solids silo are disclosed, permitting a controllable solids discharge evenly across the cross-section of the silo. The cross-section of the silo discharge is divided into several, preferably equivalent, partial cross-sections to which a continuously controllable discharge device is connected. The solid flow discharged from the controllable discharge devices can be collected on a continuous conveyor arranged therebelow and removed. The even solid mass discharge from the continuous discharge devices is controlled, depending on measured signals from several equivalent sensors, recording the local mass flow in the corresponding partial sections of the silo, by means of the conveyor power of the discharge device, relating to each sensor. Where electrically-conducting solids are used which are to be heated in the silo using electrodes by means of resistance heating, the control of the discharge devices is achieved with the measured current at the electrodes.
