Method Of Loading Carbon Molecular Sieve To Psa Tank

  1. Feb 21, 2017 #1
    Dear all

    I want to loading about 14 ton of CMS (Carbon Molecular Sieve) into a PSA Nitrogen Producer tank.
    The tank is 5 meter tall with 2 m in diameter.
    What is the best, simplest and fastest method to load the pellet of CMS into that big tank?

    I consider this mortar screw pump and connect it to a long / extended hose to reach the top of the tank.


    Within removing the agitator inside the hopper and used VFD/VSD to slow down the motor speed of Screw or Pump mechanism, will the screw still crunch or crush the CMS pellet?

    Sorry for my English.

    Best Regards

    Consider a high volume suction system such as an industrial vacuum cleaner, with a cyclone separator on top of the tank.
    That can be rearranged to load pellets into, or to empty the tank, without damaging the pellets.
