Title (EN) SOURCE MATERIAL DELIVERY SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME D'ACHEMINEMENT DE MATIERE PREMIERE
Abstract:
(EN) A system (18) for repeatedly supplying a predetermined quantity of solid particulate material, e.g. solid, spherical silicon particles (92), to a location (19) remote from the area where the particulate material is stored. The system (18) includes a container (90) for storing solid particulate material (92), a receiving chamber (106) coupled with the container (90) and sized and configured to admit only a predetermined quantity of particulate material (92) from the container (90), and means (134, 136, 138) for applying at least one stream of a pressurized fluid so as to entrain and transport said predetermined quantity of particulate material (92) from the receiving chamber (106) to the remote location (19).
(FR) Système (18) d'alimentation répétée en matière particulaire solide en une quantité prédéterminée, par exemple, des particules de silicium solides sphériques (92), à un emplacement (19) éloigné de la zone où la matière particulaire est stockée. Le système (18) comprend un conteneur (90) destiné à stocker de la matière particulaire solide (92), une chambre de réception (106) couplée au conteneur (90), dimensionnée et configurée pour n'admettre qu'une quantité prédéterminée de matière particulaire (92) du conteneur (90), ainsi qu'un moyen (134, 136, 138) destiné à appliquer au moins un courant d'un fluide sous pression, de manière à entraîner et à transporter ladite quantité prédéterminée de matière particulaire (92), de la chambre de réception (106) à l'emplacement éloigné (19).
