Rag Tearer Silo

Rag Tearer Silo

The rag tearer silo charger is used for the feeding and dosing of tearing machines. It loads machine for storage, provides continuous regular mixing and feeding of the tearing machines, for preparing the stuffing processes for recycling textile materials.

The system allows great autonomy and production capacity due to the high storage capability of the machine and its ability to provide a continuous load for the tearing machine.

The rag tearer silo provides a continuous and regular supply and good mixing for any kind of shredded textile waste.

The silo charger has a self-regulation electronic system for the loading and unloading processes, according to the production line requirements of which it forms part.

Operating process

The silo charger consists of a vertical silo, a horizontal silo, discharger and a material compactor that regulates the amount of matter that we want to load.

Feeding is carried out through the pneumatic conveyor from the storage and mixture systems. The material is deposited in the vertical silo (1st silo) where the air is decompressed.

After the material passes the horizontal silo (2nd silo), where there is a conveyor belt in the lower part which carries the material up to the discharger.

The discharger has a very large, high resistance, spiked conveyor that discharges the material to the compactor.

The dosing- compactor regulates the thickness of the deposited material and the load on the tearing machine table.

There are various models and versions of the silo dosing charger, for the tearing machine type that is to be fed

Silos chargers are capable of useful working widths of up to 2,000 mm

Storage capacities range between 5.6 and 12 ㎥

The silo dosing-charger is suitable for working with all types of tearing machines in recycling, reuse, transformation processes and preparation of regenerated fibres or stuffing of:

  • Natural fibres (cotton, jute, flax, hemp, esparto, sisal, wool)
  • Synthetic fibres (nylon, polyester, acrylic)
  • Nonwoven (wadding, felt, needleloom, heatsetting).
