The twin screw arrangement with a special outlet provides an evenly distributed feed.

Solids handling specialist, Ajax Equipment, has supplied leading chemicals producer, Tata Chemicals Europe, with a twin screw feeder replacing an existing Ajax twin screw feeder which has reliably performed for over 15 years. Tata Chemicals Europe produce a range of chemicals for the manufacturing, pharmaceutical and food industries. The feeder is used in the production of soda ash at Tata Chemicals’ Lostock plant. The Ajax screw feeder provides a link in production between the centrifuge and fluidised bed dryer. Using a twin screw arrangement with a special outlet provides an evenly distributed feed into the fluid bed. The twin screw feeder is constructed from carbon steel while the auger’s ribbon flights are wear resistant steel; the machine requires hard wearing materials due to the effects of soda ash production. The feeder also includes an insulated jacket to maintain the process’ desired temperature and prevent condensation.
