Monroe, NC (PRWEB) March 25, 2014
Spiroflow Systems, a respected leader in the powder handling and conveying industries, is known for its innovative and effective design solutions. The company recently worked with Access Security Products Ltd. to resolve a powder handling problem with a proprietary cement mixture used in their manufacturing process.
Access Security Products Ltd. is a leading manufacturer and supplier of burglary and fire resistant safes, vaults and physical security equipment. The company uses an expensive proprietary cement mixture in the walls of their safes and vaults rendering them almost impenetrable to thieves and fire. This castable material has an extremely high compressive strength and provides maximum burglary resistance. It also happens to be a very difficult product to handle. The material is a fine powder, which arrives by container quite compacted, has very poor flow characteristics bridges easily, is very abrasive and readily absorbs moisture.
About once each month a single container holding 20 tons of cement arrives from Europe. The cement is packaged in twenty 2,000 lb. single trip, single loop, lined bulk bags which must be emptied into a large outdoor storage silo. The entire load of material must be emptied into the silo as quickly as possible to minimize moisture absorption. The company’s goal was to empty a single bulk bag in 30 minutes and all 20 bulk bags within ten hours. They needed a robust and reliable powder handling solution to accomplish the task.
Access Security had initially purchased a $ 40,000 pneumatic conveying system from another supplier but the cement material accumulated within the conveying tube rendering the conveyor completely inoperable. After working with the vendor for some time without resolution, Access Security ultimately had no other choice but to scrap the equipment and find an alternative conveying solution. The company was without a powder handling system for about a year and was emptying the bulk bags directly into the storage silo with a crane – an expensive and labor intensive process.
President, Peter Gauthier, considered his options and turned to Spiroflow Systems. The requirements for a new system were:
Provide a completely closed robust system that could reliably convey their cement material without material build up and excessive wear on equipment.
Accommodate bulk bag unloading inside the company’s warehouse but convey the product through the roof, outside the building and into a large outdoor storage silo approximately 40’ away.
Operate reliably and consistently in temperature and weather extremes typical in the Ontario Canada region.
Provide a dust free solution to minimize exposure to moisture in the environment and to provide a clean and safe work environment for employees.
Successfully unload the 2,000 lb. single loop, lined, single trip bulk bags within 30 minutes or less.
Incorporate appropriate discharge aids (side massage, bottom massage and agitation) to encourage material flow.
Minimize product loss.
Offer proof that the recommended solution will work before purchase.
Provide a solution guarantee!
Due to the characteristics of the particular cement mixture and the frustration the customer had previously experienced, Spiroflow Systems experts recommended that it be tested in the company’s test lab. President Peter Gauthier commented, ‘Having our cement powder thoroughly tested was a vital step in the process. It gave us confidence that Spiroflow’s recommended solution would work as specified.’ Additionally, Spiroflow Systems has long guaranteed any powder handling solution tested in their lab. ‘The company’s performance guarantee also gave us piece of mind,’ added Gauthier.
The T4 Bulk Bag Unloader has a pneumatic bag piercing knife to cut open the bottom of each single trip bulk bag. It also has a dust evacuation frame supplied with a rubber dust seal membrane located inside the support dish for optimal dust control. The unloader was supplied with four corner massage and vibration to encourage material flow. Additionally the pneumatic bag piercing knife serves to encourage material flow by breaking up compacted material in the bottom of the bulk bag.
Dual Flexible Screw Conveyors, only three feet in length and positioned at a 45° angle, are fitted to the bottom of the Bulk Bag Unloader. These conveyors utilize Proscrews to move the material out of the discharge hopper. Proscrews have a beveled profile ideal for conveying poor flowing material and their semi-rigid construction enables steep conveying angles without bends.
The dual Flexible Screw Conveyors deliver the fine cement powder out of the bulk bag unloader into a vertical Aero Mechanical Conveyor which is four inches in diameter, 13’ long and positioned vertically. A second Aero Mechanical Conveyor, 38’ long and positioned at a 33° incline, moves the cement material from the vertical conveyor, through the roof, and outside the building into the outdoor storage silo.
A NEMA 4 Certified Control Panel was provided and operates the entire system. Specific controls include:
VFDs for the Flexible Screw Conveyors
Motor Starters for the Agitators and Aero Mechanical Conveyors
A Low Level Probe in the hopper of the Bulk Bag Unloader
Four Corner Massage
Given the physical properties of the cement powder Spiroflow engineers recommended that the company completely clean the equipment after each container of material is conveyed into the outdoor storage silo. This prevents any potential material build up from interfering with equipment operation.
Once installed and commissioned, operators at Access Security report that the new powder handling system works beautifully. The system is reliable, operates just as promised and performs at twice the required rate – all without material build up. The closed system keeps the cement powder dry and contained resulting in minimal product waste and a clean, safe environment for employees. Peter Gauthier reported, ‘Spiroflow’s equipment handles our cement powder quite well and actually empties each bulk bag in only 15 minutes. Our goal was to empty each 20 ton container in 10 hours and we have cut that time in half!’
For over 40 years, Spiroflow Systems has designed, engineered and manufactured its leading line of powder handling and conveying solutions.

The feisty, domineering cattle baron Matt Devereaux (Tracy) rules his vast empire with a ruthless hand. Because Matt’s greatest love id for his Indian wife, Princess (Jurado) and their son Joe, Matt’s three sons from a previous marriage deeply resent them. After Joe agrees to go to jail for a crime his father commits, he returns three years later to a different world-his father has died and his vengeful brothers control the land.Broken Lance is a noble entry in the trend of adult Westerns of the early 1950s, scoring on a couple of fronts: (1) as a multigenerational saga, with Shakespearian overtones, of a family bickering over a giant ranch, and (2) as a grown-up look at the dilemma of the Native American… its title perhaps inspired by the Indian-friendly Broken Arrow? Spencer Tracy stars as the blustery patriarch of a cattle spread, threatened by pollution from a nearby copper mine as well as the shiftiness of his older sons (Richard Widmark, Hugh O’Brian, and Earl Holliman). Tracy’s bluff characterization–as ever, he seems to be yanking at the script like a cat unraveling a ball of yarn–carries the film effortlessly along. The central character is actually his youngest and wisest son, played by Robert Wagner, who’s not especially convincing as the mixed-race issue of Tracy’s second marriage, to an Indian woman (Oscar nominee Katy Jurado). Edward Dmytryk directs in a style that could be called “intelligent,” which is another way of saying “not very exciting.” The early CinemaScope probably accounts for some of the static set-ups, although there are exteriors that are breathtaking (watching this film in its full-screen version would be crazy). The cast is certainly tops; Widmark is overqualified to play a third lead, but who’s complaining? Most memorable is the loving relationship between Tracy’s cattleman and his Indian wife, although the subject of Native Americans is secondary here (check out The Devil’s Doorway and Apache for more overt Fifties looks at the topic). Veteran screenwriter Philip Yordan won an Oscar for his “original story,” a curious and long-defunct Academy Award category. –Robert Horton
