APPLICATION:  DRUM FILLING LINE
 
  MeadWestvaco is a resin plant in Charleston, SC. They have a drum filling line that operates with an automatic filling arm.  
     
 
PROBLEM:
When a drum is filled an automatic valve closes which causes an extreme water hammer effect. All the pipes leading into the system shake so hard they have broken loose from the pipe stringers


SOLUTION:
We installed a BLACOH CT2420WF right at the connection point where the flexible fill hose starts. Now each time the automatic valve closes the hose absorbs a portion of the water hammer and the dampener absorbs the remainder. Pipes have stopped shaking and remain in place with no broken stringers. Also, operators feel safe from any possible pipes breaking causing product to be spilled out.
