32 DRUM HEATING CABINET, DOUBLE DEPTH, L.I.F.O. LOADING SYSTEM BY AUTOMATIC ROLLER CONVEYORS – AMARC srl

32 DRUM HEATING CABINET, DOUBLE DEPTH, L.I.F.O. LOADING SYSTEM BY AUTOMATIC ROLLER CONVEYORS

Given the request for capacity of the heating cabinet, the installation site showed the following logistic limitations:

  • 1width limited for a standard 32 drums version
  • the access route from the entrance to the installation site showed passage limitations that ruled out the possibility of a standard version.

The first problem was solved by increasing the depth of the cabinet (double) instead of the width, providing a f.I.L.O. Loading system by using motor-operated roller conveyors controlled by a plc on a control panel, and by means of a remote-controlled pushbutton panel on board the machine.
The second problem was solved by designing the cabinet in three blocks sized suitably for passage.
The cabinet was constructed with mixed electric + steam heating system.
After accompanying the customer in the design and technical training, AMARC handled the transport, unloading, mechanical and electrical assembly, start-up and training.
