Grain and Dry Chemical Transfer and Storage Facility Equipment are used at facilities where grains and dry chemicals are received, stored and transferred for distribution or direct use. Grains and chemicals are unloaded from trucks, rail car or ships by conveyors, pneumatic transfer or bucket elevator into storage silos, hoppers or warehouses, from which the grains and dry chemicals are distributed or transferred to manufacturing process.
This equipment is typically found at breweries to store and transfer grains or at cement warehouses to store and distribute cements. Air contaminants emitted from Grain and Dry Chemical Transfer and Storage Facility Equipment include particulate matter and toxic air contaminants. Particulate matter emissions are controlled by enclosed transfer lines and by venting the silos, hopper or warehouses to baghouses or filter systems.
