United Conveyor Corporation (UCC), a global leader in ash handling and custom-engineered material handling systems, introduces its high-aapacity pin-paddle mixer/unloader. The introduction of UCC’s 400t mixer/unloader extends the range of UCC’s proven mixer product line and enhances UCC’s ability to meet customer requirements. The high-capacity pin-paddle mixer/unloader is specifically designed for stabilisation of wet scrubber by-product (cake) with fly ash.

“The latest high-capacity pin-paddle mixer/unloader was developed specially to stabilise both wet scrubber by-products and fly ash in one unit and significantly improves efficiency,” states Dan Charhut, vice president at UCC. “As plant equipment, demands and requirements change, UCC works closely with customers to develop solutions that meet their unique needs.

The high-capacity mixer builds on the operating efficiencies of the UCC mixer/unloader product line, including uniform conditioning of materials with specifically designed nozzle arrangements to wet the ash with a precisely regulated volume and distribution of water resulting in a homogenous mix and functional dust suppression.

The new mixer/unloader has been developed with a large inlet opening to accommodate multiple feeding belt conveyor lines for greater system flexibility and throughput. The pins and paddles work in conjunction to move and mix materials through to the discharge area. The robust design and stainless steel construction delivers high-capacity performance and longer life.

The rigid body and shaft cladding, both constructed of 316L stainless steel, provide corrosion protection for the mixer components in direct contact with the scrubber blow down water. The mixing pins are also constructed of 316L stainless steel with ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene covers to reduce material buildup. A domed cover and multiple flip-up doors allow easy access to paddles, pins and shafts. The rubber timing belt ensures efficient, trouble-free power transmission, saves energy, reduces operating noise and maintains a smooth, constant output speed.
