Since their beginnings over fifty years ago, The Young Industries has strived to produce equipment to revolutionize the way powders and bulk solids are handled. With the introduction of Trans-Flow, they have succeeded in this endeavor in creating a means to enhance the flow properties of pigments, resins, additives, carbon black, toner and much, much more.
Trans-Flow is a specially designed permeable membrane used in silos, hoppers, downspouts, chutes - anywhere that powders or bulk solids would normally rat hole, bridge or funnel flow. Designed with no particular market in mind, this membrane is applicable in virtually any process industry where bulk solids are used.
Trans-Flow aeration media is constructed of porous 316 stainless steel with an ultra smooth finished contact surface. This produces an evenly distributed layer of air that separates the bulk material from the media. The best analogy is that this works similar to an air hockey table.
This media is able to withstand temperatures of up to 1000 degrees F and resists corrosion and utilizes typically only 3-5 psig of air or gas. The maximum recommended pressure is 15 psig. Following are photos showing the types of configurations where Trans-Flow has been used with great success. See also information on The Stinger for other remarkable applications news.
TRANS-FLOW CAN BE USED VIRTUALLY IN ANY PLACE WHERE POWDERS & BULK SOLIDS GET HUNG UP. ASK US ABOUT OUR GUARANTEE THAT THIS WILL WORK FOR YOU.
Pictured left is a large TransFlow cone used on the base of a silo to prevent product from bridging, rat holing or funnel flow. The best thing about TransFlow is that there is no vibration, no moving parts and therefore, low maintenance and low operating costs.
Pictured, left, is a rotary valve lined with TransFlow pockets. This special valve is exceptional for removing powder that would otherwise stick to the rotor pockets.
