Featured Equipment

  • Particle Characterization System Combines Automated Imaging with Raman Spectroscopy

    The Morphologi G3-ID from Malvern Instruments is a powerful particle characterization system that combines automated imaging with Raman spectroscopy. Using these technologies it delivers component specific particle size and shape distribution data for discrete populations within a powder blend. One...

  • Secure Cloud-Based Industrial Monitoring Solution

    It is well known that transporting certain dry dusty materials can create explosive atmospheres. Five conditions, known as the “Dust Explosion Pentagon”, have to exist in order for the explosive state to occur. First, there needs to be a high concentration of dust (fuel), followed by an...

  • Flexicon Offers Ultra-Heavy-Duty Bulk Bag Filling System

    This new ultra-heavy-duty bulk bag filling system palletizes and fills bulk bags with filter cake, aggregates, metal powders, abrasive minerals, dry chemical additives, and other difficult-to-handle bulk materials. The system integrates a Swing-Down bulk bag filler with a Flexicon pallet...

  • Van Beek Supplies Custom-Built TwinFeeders to Hosokawa Micron

    Van Beek recently supplied a state-of-the-art TwinFeeder to Hosokawa Micron in Doetinchem, The Netherlands. Hosokawa uses this type of TwinFeeder as a feed screw for its Drymeister (DMR) flash dryer. Because of the constantly changing designs that Hosokawa Micron needs, it remains a challenge for...

  • Programmable Motion Control with Two Signal Set Points

    The new Model MSD-800 series motion sensing controls offer protection of indoor and outdoor rotating equipment such as screw conveyors, belt conveyor pulleys, rotary feeders, and bucket elevators from costly damage by continuously monitoring rotary speed. The Model MSD alerts the operator of a...

  • Fabric-Reinforced Plastic Hose

    As a light suction and blast hose, the Protape TPE 321 offers the benefits of a fabric-reinforced hose: durable, abrasion-proof, and highly flexible, light, and compressible. In this version, the new hose is ideally suited for applications from the transport of powdery solids, through to gaseous...

  • Combustible Dust Basics: How to Collect a Sample and What Does a Go/No-Go Test Mean?

    We’ve been writing a lot recently on the basics of combustible dust. Makes sense, after all, what safety professional knows exactly how much of their particular dust, in their particular facility under a certain set of circumstances is ok? And, if you don’t yet have a dust collection...

  • Vibrating Point Level Sensor with Self-Diagnostics

    The SC35 series vibrating fork point level sensor uses state-of-the-art piezoelectric crystal and electronic technology, does not require any calibration, and can diagnose potential problems, including material build-up and abrasion to the primary sensing elements. The vibrating fork point...

  • Capturing Bulk Transported Lime Dust

    Weekly tanker truck deliveries of hydrated lime are pneumatically conveyed to an outdoor storage bin (silo). A dust collector is required to allow the conveying air to exhaust, without pressurizing the silo and preventing any of the conveyed lime from escaping and discharging to the environment....

  • High-Tech Plastics Are Economical and Environmentally Friendly

    One of the greatest advantages of plastic is that it can replace heavier metal – resulting in more lightweight automobiles. DuBay Polymer GmbH is one of the world’s largest plants for the production of high-tech plastic. During the refinement process of compounding, a variety of dusts...
