The PIPELINE DELUMPER® is a proven in-line lump breaker that chops, shreds, disperses and suspends solids directly in fully enclosed pipe systems. This straight-through ultra-compact unit rectifies flow properties of heavy sludge, slurries and solids-laden streams. The PIPELINE DELUMPER alleviates blockages, works the stream to free flow and improves processing. It can prevent damage to pumps, piping, valves, nozzles and downstream equipment. This unit has proven itself as a valuable problem solver in process systems worldwide.
The ultra-compact PIPELINE DELUMPER is designed for easy installation in straight-thru, liquid, pneumatic or gravity systems. This unit aggressively reduces solids up to the full pipe size with a self-clearing, self-feeding mechanism. It is supplied with an effective seal system housed in an easy to maintain bearing/seal cartridge. This cartridge design eliminates the need for plant personnel to handle delicate seal components. A choice of seals is available.
The PIPELINE DELUMPER converts a solids-laden stream into a fully suspended homogeneous flow ... instantly. It stops settling out, clustering and over-pressure.
The reduced particles are entrained in the stream, away from the pipe walls. Scale that becomes dislodged from reactors, silos and tank is crushed before it can impede the flow.
The PIPELINE DELUMPER can be configured to meet most application requirements. Units are supplied with standard 150# ASA flanges and can be supplied with up to 600# flanges. Packings, mechanical seals or nitrogen purge deals can be provided.
A unique replaceable liner system allows for the complete periodic renewal of the unit interior. An optional sizing screen can be provided for fine particle reduction. A hard facing option provides extended cutter life in extremely abrasive service. Controls and zero speed indicators are also available. Units are provided in carbon steel, 304L or 316L stainless steel, and special nickel alloys.
