Fishmeal Pneumatic Conveying

CFW designs, manufactures and installs pneumatic conveying systems suitable for transporting fishmeal. Our conveyors are designed to reduce capital costs and perform reliably while permitting great flexibility in layout and installation options.

fishmeal

After being ground, fish meal is typically conveyed to storage using a pneumatic conveyor. Particulate emissions of fishmeal are generally low, as the proportion of fines is small, and adequately handled by cyclones.

The odours caused by fishmeal production processes are of considerable concern today, and sometimes the threat of closure looms over a plant because of this. It is a critical concern for public perceptions, sometimes making it difficult to obtain permits for new facilities. Pneumatic systems minimise the contribution of conveying to odour emissions, as they are completely enclosed. This also ensures that the product is not contaminated and that fines do not dirty or clog other areas of the facility. It is thus a superior arrangement for maintaining the levels of sanitation required.
