  • Selecting the Right Technology to Measure Level and Volume of Solids

    Measuring the level and volume of powders and bulk solids in a vessel can be considerably more challenging than determining the level of a liquid. While measuring liquid level presents many challenges, most present a uniform surface. Solids don’t behave as predictably, and this often causes...

  • High-Speed Turning Technology

    Columbia’s new patented Variable Position Turner (VPT) technology maximizes speed and flexibility for inline high-speed palletizing. With VPT technology, servos are used to dynamically position the center turners laterally on an in-line palletizer while the layer is being formed. VPT...

  • High-Speed Shrink Sleeve/Neck Banding System

    PDC International Corp. has re-introduced a shrink sleeve applicator/bander that operates at up to 400 cpm, and handles a broad range of applications, including bottled and jarred foods, pharmaceuticals, and products with irregular shapes or inconsistent sizes, such as candles and syringes. The...

  • Classifying Impact Mill

    The Sturtevant FCM is a classifying impact mill capable of narrow particle size distribution from 95% below 250 micron (95% passes through 60 mesh) to 90% below 10 micron (90% passes through 1250 mesh). It is a workhorse in particle size reduction applications due to its combination of impact...

  • Pin Mill Cleans Rapidly

    Munson’s 24-in.-diam pin mill grinds, sizes, de-agglomerates, and homogenizes friable or other materials into controlled particle sizes, from coarse to fine (400 mesh). Also known as a centrifugal impact mill, it is equipped with a stationary outer disc and a rotating inner disc, both of...

  • Upgraded Grinding System

    Compared to the traditional peg grinding system, several significant upgrades have been made with the Neos grinding system. A ceramic material with high wear resistance and maximum thermal conductivity is now standard for the inner liner of the grinding chamber. The agitator shaft was designed so,...

  • Direct-Drive Mill

    The newly designed PKA Velocity Series mill now has dual air inlets controlled by air damping valves to control the volume of air intake into each of the air inlets in the mill chamber. These double the amount of air intake into the mills cutting chamber. The mill also has dual material outlets,...

  • Vacuum Conveying of Dense Metal Powders

    Additive Manufacturing, aka 3D printing, is a rapidly growing business sector with new machines, models, developments, and more complex components being added on a daily basis. As the production rates increase, the need to be able to supply raw materials to the machine and to reclaim/reprocess...

  • Beumer Introduces New Bag-in-Bag System

    The new Beumer bag-in-bag system quickly packs filled paper bags individually or in groups with a weather-resistant plastic film. This protects the contents against moisture, dust, insects, and other environmental influences during storage and transport. The bag-in-bag is easy to integrate into...

  • To Convey Mechanically or Pneumatically

    Pneumatic conveying is by far the most hygienic conveying method for bulk dry powders and granular bulk materials because it is a fully enclosed system that protects materials from air, dirt, and waste, and in turn, facilities from fugitive dust. There are, however, instances where mechanical...
