    Description

    National Oilwell Varco’s Surge Tank Feeder is the optimal solution for controlled, dust-free feeding of bulk materials from surge tanks. Control of the feed rate and batch size can be fully automated, providing the operator full flexibility for local or remote operations.

    National Oilwell Varco’s Surge Tank Feeder is a rotating, star feeder type unit. Its material activator is an integral part of the vertical shaft. The activator breaks down material bridging inside the tank, ensuring even material flow and complete emptying of the tank. The need for fluidization is minimized and the use of a sledgehammer is eliminated.

    The feeder outlet is sealed off by a butterfly valve when not feeding, and when blowing material back from the surge tank to storage tanks. The outlet can be easily modified beneath the surge tank to suit the actual application.

    Flanges are also available for welding onto the existing surge tank, thus simplifying modification of the unit.
