Talcum Dispenser

Talcum Dispenser

Talcum Dispenser

Does anyone knows about some automatic Talcum Dispenser?

I need to integrate one of this in our process to apply talcum into the boot of the coil Ingition.

Actually the operator in the plant aply the talcum powder manually.

Sincerely I dont know if there are some company that manufacture this type of dispenser
I was try looking it on the Web but i can't find some specific information for my application.

I appreciate any comment.

RE: Talcum Dispenser

You are more likely asking about a small "powder dispenser".
How do you expect these boots to be powdered?  They get waved under a small talc waterfall?

Hi Keith

thank you for your reply

and Yes you are right, "Powder dispenser".
The Attached picture shows how the operator Currently apply the powder grease.

in fact, we are using a vision system to detect the presence of powder grease after it was applied.

Thank you again.

RE: Talcum Dispenser

Well my suggestion is not based on engineering experience, but sports experience.  Ever think of a chalk ball?  I use it for rock climbing.  It's basically a fine net full of talc, that puts a coating of talk on whatever it contacts.  The hands in this case, but a small version could be created to apply a coating to a substrate, assuming the substrate is attractive.
