Polymer blending system at Mariani Terminal, Tampa, FL

Polymer Blending System

The box dumper shown here is hydraulically powered to overturn a box of polymer and dump its contents into the hopper. A fork lift truck is needed to place the box on the hopper before it is dumped.

Newer systems use bags of polymer instead of boxes. Handling systems for the polymer bags have a trolley that facilitates handling the bags and eliminates the need for a fork lift truck and box dumper.
