Casing Diameter: 4 inches
Elevation: 15 feet
Rate per hour: 2 tons
Material: Gypsum Powder
A gypsum company wanted to test the OLDS ELEVATOR™ technology on a range of products from raw gypsum powder to refined gypsum product such as Plaster of Paris and stucco powders.
A mobile OLDS ELEVATOR™ was designed for their Research and Development center for use in a Pilot Plant to feed their kiln.
Pending successful completion of trials at the Pilot Plant the company expects to use OLDS ELEVATORS™ to replace 3 pieces of equipment in new plants: bucket elevator, overhead storage hopper and volumetric feeder. By using the OLDS ELEVATOR™ to feed their kiln directly, they will also be able to reduce the height of new plants from 4 stories to 2 stories.Email Olds Elevator™
