The standard documentation package includes a specific general arangement drawing, a control philosophy, a P&ID, OMMs and individual data sheets.

A declaration of incorporation is also issued with each installation.

Specific documentation packages can be made on demand and include :

  • Drawings integrated in specific templates, additional views (exploded, sectional)
  • A functional analysis
  • Various quality documents (material certificates, conformity certificates, motors routine tests)
  • A MRB (Manufacturing Record Book following the customer’s template)

This documentation must be requested in your initial inquiry, giving our sales engineers ample time to include them in the proposal.

This question is usually asked in the case of an installation with an existing storage silo with a vibrating bottom or fluidisation extraction system.

Often the silo cone can be dismantled and replaced by a Sodimate standard cone. This adaptation cone can then be part of the service offered by our sales department.

In the case of a non-removable cone, our sales department will confirm whether the dimensions allow the adaptation of Sodimate equipment or not. 

In case of modification, it will be necessary to contact a boilermaker or ideally the original manufacturer of the silo in order to have the modification work costed.

The main differences between hydrated (slaked) lime and quicklime are their reactivity and chemical composition. Both hydrated lime and quicklime are composed of calcium. In its hydrated state, calcium is called calcium hydroxide, or hydrated lime, and in its pure state it is called calcium oxide, or quicklime. Quicklime has a high density (0.9). It is by definition more reactive than slaked lime.

As a company that provides custom-made products, Sodimate adapts to all the customer’s requests. Regarding corrosion resistance our standard is C3M paint, for exigent environments like in the Middle East for example a C5 paint can be applied. 

On average, a company operating a water or flue gas treatment plant that follows our recommendations can end up with an installation that lasts more than 20 years. 

The maximum flow rate is 12,000 liters per hour. It is possible to have a higher flow, a preliminary study will be necessary. 

A screw feeder allows to meter the desired quantity of powder. The conveyor allows the transfer of the powder when the metering screw is not long enough or when high angles do not allow the inclination of the metering screw.

The injector is used when there is a risk of solidification of the powders due to an exothermic reaction for example. It protects the metering unit and the conveyor by trapping the humidity and prevents it from spreading in the metering unit and the conveyor. The injector is generally used for lime.

Sodimate can meter different types of powder (lime, activated carbon, limestone, sodium bicarbonate…). After an experience of more than 40 years, SODIMATE has a reference list of more than 100 products which have all been properly metered by our equipment specifically designed for these applications.
