Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) Handling Solutions

Enable Seamless Flow with Rieco's TiO2 Handling Solutions

Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is a versatile mineral with applications ranging from household products to advanced manufacturing. Its unique properties, including high hardness (Mohs 5.5-6) and UV absorption capabilities, make it indispensable in paints, coatings, plastics, sunscreens, cosmetics, and more. While generally safe under proper handling, nano-sized particles may pose health and environmental concerns.

Rieco's engineering team meticulously addresses challenges posed by TiO2, such as fine particles, moderate abrasiveness, and lumping tendencies, by designing specialized handling solutions for smooth storage vessel emptying and conveying operations.

Common Challenges in TiO2 Handling

Fine Particle Size and stickiness leading to poor flow characteristics and potential material buildup
Fine Particle Size and stickiness leading to poor flow characteristics and potential material buildup
Rieco TiO2 systems are designed with smooth surfaces, flow aids and appropriate geometries to reduce material adhesion specific to application.
TiO2 is highly abrasive, causing rapid wear and tear on equipment
TiO2 is highly abrasive, causing rapid wear and tear on equipment
Rieco addresses this challenge by maintaining low velocities in pneumatic conveying systems and utilizing wear-resistant materials or applying protective coatings to extend equipment lifespan and reduce maintenance costs.
Handling TiO2 can generate airborne dust, posing health risks

We at Rieco, conduct compatibility tests to ensure equipment and materials are suitable for handling TiO2 without adverse reactions.
Storage of TiO2
Storage of TiO2
Once stored into silos/charge hopper, the discharge process is very challenging due to its sticky nature. RIECO provides fluidization arrangement and other silo discharge arrangements for easy discharge of material.
Material buildup in conveying pipe
Material buildup in conveying pipe
Material lining buildup in pipe which requires more pressure to convey this material leading to pressure drop in system affects conveying efficiency. Rieco designs ensure .
Material Wastage
Material Wastage
TiO2 is an expensive material, and any loss due to inefficiencies in venting arrangements and leakages in the conveying system can result in material loss leading monetary loss. Rieco design ensures high efficiency dust collection and leak-proof conveying systems are to minimize material loss and reduce running cost.
