TAILORED SOLUTIONS

YOU START WITH AN IDEA. WE MAKE IT HAPPEN.

Here at THIELMANN we don't believe in 'one size fits all'. Your operations are unique, your production line should be also.

Whether you operate in the food, chemical or pharmaceutical industry, we have the expertise to fully customise, equip and integrate a production line for your plant. Starting with evaluation of the product blend formulation and flow characteristics of your materials, our engineers will configure a system that provides:

  • A smooth work flow
  • Safe transport and storage of all materials, both hazardous and non-hazardous
  • Dosing system automation for precise, repeatable results at scale
  • Safety interlocks to confirm exact docking of containers at each stage
  • The correct interfaces for an integrated solution
  • The right mixing solution for your materials, whether a tumble mixer or stirring unit
  • The optimal cone valve for your materials for zero segregation and rat-holing
  • Dispensing and discharging equipment and processes that eliminate cross-contamination
  • Precision engineered container systems that deliver the highest standard of quality and safety
  • Validatable precision
  • Hygienic, cleanable and durable containers containers made from Type 304 or Type 316, Type 316L stainless steel or Hastelloy and 6-moly alloy

how does it work?

Understand how THIELMANN can meet your IBC-based powder handling requirements

 

Filling

Filling

IBC filled with raw materials via either manual process or automated process managed by the control panel

Dosing

Dosing

Accurate dosing of materials according to recipe using the correct valve to ensure precise measurements

Blending

Blending

Materials blended together using the correct agitator to suit the materials in use and ensure an evenly blended product

Packing

Packing

End product dispensed into packaging container using the correct valve to eliminate bridging, rat-holing and segregation

Cleaning

Cleaning

Easy cleaning processes for all IBCs, valves and interface systems to ensure hygiene and eliminate cross-contamination

Bridging
Bridging occurs when large particles interlock above the outlet resulting in no flow
Rat-holing
Rat holing occurs when material against the sides of the IBC remains stagnent and a channel of quickly moving materials flows from the centre
Segregation
Segregation occurs when particles of different sizes or weight move through the discharge valve at an uneven rate
Containment
Dosing systems designed with valves and fittings that comply with Operator Exposure Limits (OELs) to protect personnel from dangerous chemicals, compounds and fumes

Industry leading solutions

Our Test Plant

Designing the right customized powder handling solution begins with testing and analysis of the raw materials you are working with, to ensure the best equipment for the job is selected.

Send our engineers a sample of the materials you work with, and they will test it to recommend the best solution to meet flowability, cleanliness and containment requirements.
