How the Discharge System Works
Follower Plate Discharge Systems are used to discharge viscous non-flowable materials from the vessel of a Change Can Mixer. A discharge platen, which is lowered by means of a hydraulic cylinder pushes out the contents of the vessel through a discharge valve which is normally located in the bottom of the mix vessel. The valve can also be located in the platen itself if desired.
Discharge Systems are built in either standard floor mount or raised designs. Designs are available from 1 pint through 500 gallons capacity. Special metering systems are available to assist in the accurate filling of small containers or cartridges. Sanitary models are built with stainless steel enclosures for use in critical operating environments.
