Vacucam® EJM 2000 Inline

Semi-Bulk Systems has more than 25 years of experience in perfecting patented systems for powder/liquid mixing processes. The VACUCAM® EJM 2000 provides a complete slurry process with the most advanced technology in the industry for the dual functions of handling powders and mixing powders with liquids.

EJM 2000 Inline

EJM 2000 Inline

The EJM 2000 can be customized for either Single Pass or Batch Recycle mixing processes.

Higher Quality

  • Optimal accuracy and product consistency — Powders and liquids are combined continuously and uniformly producing higher slurry quality.
  • High product integrity — Dry handling and wet processing are totally separated.
  • Industry standard hydraulic pumping — Centrifugal or positive displacement pumps featuring Fristam quality.

Lower Cost

  • Power consumption reduced by 50% to 75% compared to alternative processes.
  • Minimal downtime and maintenance costs
  • The VACUCAM® EJM 2000 has no moving parts. High quality, low maintenance Fristam pumps supply the hydraulic energy,
  • Greater speed and efficiency — The EJM 2000 process can be automated and operated from a centre: control. Process time is greatly reduced with increased capacity. The process offers faster hydration and faster functioning of thickeners or reactive products.
  • Reduced housekeeping effort — Dry handling and mixing are totally enclosed and vacuum conveyed, providing a dust-free environment:
  • For hygienic processes, powder is kept out of wet process area, minimizing potential for bacteria growth.
  • For industrial processes, powder is kept out of process areas, eliminating dust.

Flexibility and Convenience

  • Available with optional centrifugal or positive displacement pumps to meet process requirements.
  • Configured for either single pass or batch recycle processing

Safety and Health

  • Less slipping and fewer accidents — Dust does not accumulate on wet walking surfaces.
  • Fewer respiratory Issues — No more dust-filled air contaminating the work environment.

Process Options

The EJM 2000 can be designed for either Single Pass or Batch Recycle mixing processes:

Single Pass systems are designed for processes with low solids levels, less than 30% by weight. it is the preferred method for thickeners, filter aids, silicas, and other shear sensitive mixtures. Single pass is also ideal for reconstitution of milk powders into water or fluid milk.

With the EJM 2000. a measured amount of liquid is pumped through the VACUCAM® Ejector Mixer conveying a desired amount of powder and discharging the slurry into a mix tank. The system is capable of dry product rates to 300 pounds per minute with an accuracy level of +/, 0.5% solids by weight.

Batch Recycle systems are designed for processes with higher levels of solids. from 30% to 60% by weight. The mixture is subjected to intense shear upon recycling through a narrow gap in the mixer housing. Suitable for any non-shear sensitive mixture with elevated solids levels.

With the EJM 2000, a measured amount of liquid in the mix tank is recirculated through the VACUCAM® Ejector Mixer until the desired amount of powder is conveyed into the batch. Dry convey rates to 300 pounds per minutes are possible from conditioned feed sources.

Depending upon requirements, the inIine module is available with either a centrifugal or positive displacement pump manufactured by FRISTAM. The compact unit can be operated in either single-pass or batch-recycle process. A liquid supply pump can be included in the system scope. If recirculation is required from multiple process vessels, additional supply pumps may be required.

Standard construction is 304 Stainless Steel for de-aeration tank, piping and process skid. Finishes are polished on tank and piping, bead blast on skid. Available options include casters for portability, vacuum and pressure transmitters, explosion-proof motors and panels.

Industrial Applications

  • Chemical Processing — Automated reaction a catalyst addition, waste stream pH adjustment. filter aid incorporation.
  • Paint & Coatings Processing — Silica incorporation. thickener additions. pigment slurries {e.g. TiO2, calcium carbonate, talc, oxides)
  • Aluminum Heat Exchanger Manufacturing — Brazing flux slurry preparation and distribution
  • Power Generation — Limestone/fly ash slurries, waste stream pH adjustment
  • Paper Manufacturing — Starch slurry. waste water pH treatment. specialized coating slurry preparation and distribution (e.g. calcium carbonate. clay. Ti02)

Sanitary Applications

  • Pharmaceutical — Sodium bicarbonate slurries, salts dissolution
  • Dairy — NFDM reconstitution, sugar liquefication, (Batch Processes or Single Pass), ice cream mixes
  • Brewing — Filter aids. silica and activated carbon slurries
  • Processed Cheese — Wet mix (high protein) slurries
  • Margarine — Whey slurries
  • Dressings — Spiced ingredients, starch slurries, egg mixes
  • Confectionary — Dry ingredient recovery/reintroduction
  • Health/Personal Care Products — Carbopol slurries (thickeners), compound dispersions

VACUCAM® Ejector Mixer

Semi-Bulk Systems VACUCAM® Ejector Mixer Dynamic Batching Station provides the most efficient dispersion, mixing and hydration of ALL dry ingredients used in today’s broad range of product types and ALL Beverage Processes.

The Vacucam® Ejector Mixer is the most effective system available for conveying, wetting, and dispersing powders into liquids.

Here is how it works.

Conditioned powder is conveyed into the mixer by a near-perfect vacuum, which is created when pressurized fluid is discharged as a high-velocity, hollow jet into which the powder is drawn.

The high speed dispersion mixer.

The Vacucam® system achieves high-speed, instantaneous and complete wetting by bringing together conditioned powder and highly atomized liquid from two separate streams, incorporating particles of liquid with particles of powder. The reactive surface areas of both the powder and the liquid are maximized before intimate contact is actually made. The result is consistently uniform, superior wetting without the agglomeration or “clumping” usually associated with conventional mixing methods.

Semi-Bulk Systems can design and integrate the Vacucam® in-line system to feed finished slurry into multiple locations of your preference, such as storage or mix tanks. Your entire process can be physically separated and centrally controlled. Semi-Bulk Systems provides options such as mounting the Ejector-Mixer on your tanks or integrating our system with your existing process.

The best fluid ejector upgrade with improved efficiency over the traditional fluid mixer.

Since the Vacucam® system achieves high-speed, instantaneous and complete mixing, it makes it perfect for fluid mixing too. You can bring together highly atomized liquids from two separate streams for batch to batch consistency and uniform mixing.
