How a portable decant solution meets an environmental challenge

With increasing focus on ESG from all stakeholder groups, there’s been an increase in demand for high-grade dust containment. This is especially true when the materials being transferred pose a high risk for negative environmental impact. 

With increasing focus on ESG from all stakeholder groups, there’s been an increase in demand for high-grade dust containment. This is especially true when the materials being transferred pose a high risk for negative environmental impact.

A global supplier of lime and limestone needed rapid, high-volume decanting in an ecologically sensitive area near the Great Barrier Reef. It also wanted a conveying solution it could relocate between their operations in Australia and New Zealand.

The customer deals in the production of high-calcium and dolomitic lime, and other lime-based products like hydrated lime, pulverised limestone, and construction stone. The products are used for the purification of air and water, and the production of steel, paper, and metals.

The customer purchased two Floveyor F5 Tanker Loaders from the Endura product range, an affordable way to convey environmentally sensitive materials. F5 Tanker Loaders feature an integrated dust collector which can extract 3,500m³ of dust-laden air. This allows full containment during the piercing and dumping of even the finest powder from FIBC bags.

A major benefit of the F5 Tanker Loader is that it’s semi-mobile and relocatable. It provides the perfect decant solution with no fixings or structural pad requirements.  The conveyor allows rapid mobilisation, application, and demobilisation while providing the benefits and features of a fixed plant application. The equipment has already been relocated several times between Queensland, Victoria, and New Zealand, contributing to an overall lower cost of ownership.
