Vanádio of Maracás implants pneumatic transport system of magnetite



Plant in Maracás

VANÁDIO DE MARACÁS, a company of the LARGO RESOURCES group, developed the project to modernize and replace the magnetite recovery system in its plant in Maracás - BA.

ZEPPELIN SYSTEMS participated in this investment, providing engineering and supply of a pneumatic dense phase conveying system, with a transfer capacity of 12 t/h of magnetite powder at a temperature of 250ºC, between the discharge of the electrostatic precipitator screw conveyor and the silo dosing device for the calciner oven.

The scope of supply included the dense phase pressure vessel conveyor equipped with load cells, the buffer hopper, the screw-type air compressor, the valves for the various functions: pressure reducer, filling, depressurization, flip-flap switching, automated unblocking, rotary valve, bag filter with exhaust fan, PIP transport piping (pipe in pipe), basalt-lined conveying curves, bag filter for destination, rotary dosing valve, and logic algorithm for programming.

Through the implementation of this system, VANÁDIO DE MARACÁS will benefit from the operation of a robust and lasting system for pneumatic transport, reducing maintenance interventions and improving the aspect of environmental control, because it is an airtight system, with emissions within the minimum parameters recommended by the current standards and accepted by the environmental authorities.

Again ZEPPELIN, a leading company in the equipment market for over 42 years, participates in the ambitious growth plans of the industries, providing complete solutions for storage and handling of dry solids.

In your plant upgrade process, consult ZEPPELIN's application engineers, because that will give your company a competitive differential.
