  • What Is the Best Type of Feeder for My Application?

    There are many types of feeders available today. The most widely used include rotary valves, vibratory trays/tubes, belts, and screw feeders. The type of feeder to be selected for a particular application is dependant upon several factors. First, it is essential to clearly define the application...

  • Explosion-Proof Bucket Elevator Alignment Control

    The explosion-proof Model VA-X bucket elevator alignment control is designed to indicate when the head or boot section of a bucket elevator drifts too far out of alignment. It can be used to signal a problem or simply shut down the bucket elevator leg. The Model VA-X control device has a sequential...

  • Portable Explosion-Proof Dust Collectors

    These portable explosion-proof dust collectors feature the proven FRV, DS2-EX series portable vacuums and NA35 Series portable immersion separation vacuums joined with an exclusive point-of-source extraction swing arm system, designed specifically to safely collect airborne combustive dusts, gases...

  • Should My Material Be Tested On-Site?

    In the past, we have discussed flow properties testing and the need for this type work to ensure reliable bin and hopper flow. The Jenike Shear Tester is a device that is recognized as the standard for testing bulk solids by ASTM (D-6128-97) in the U.S. and in Europe, and the test procedure is well...

  • Conveyor Distributes Bulk Commodities into Dozens of Bulk Storage Bins

    This conveyor is designed to distribute bulk commodities into dozens of bulk storage bins with staggered inlet openings. Material is received from a bucket elevator, conveyed along the length of the central conveyor, and then elevated and discharged through a tripper and onto a cross belt conveyor...

  • Spherical Pipeline Magnetic Separator

    The Magnattack spherical pipeline separator houses a high-intensity magnetic element with flux strengths ranging from 10,000 to more than 12,000 gauss in larger models. The design effectively removes ferrous metal and work-hardened stainless steel. The housing is easily installed with tri-clamp...

  • Automated Bulk Bag Filling System Streamlines Peanut Processing

    Golden Grove founder Lee Swinson, a peanut farmer in Eastern North Carolina, sells his Carolina/Virginia-style peanuts to wholesalers around the world. While some peanuts are made into candy and some are roasted, packaged and sold to retailers, the majority of the 10,000-ton harvest is left raw and...

  • Slope’s Effect on Accurate Weighing

    Customers often have concerns that their floor isn’t level and questions as to what affect that will have on their weight readings. The scale is designed with the assumption that the load will be parallel to the direction of gravity and perpendicular to the weighing platform; meaning, there...

  • Integrated Bin Filling Hopper for Tablet Dedusters

    Pharma Technology Inc. introduces an integrated bin filling hopper for its PharmaFlex family of tablet dedusters. The hoppers, which come in sizes of 50 or 100 l, allow for the accumulation of tablets until in-process weight, thickness, and hardness control checks have been completed. These hoppers...

  • Kansas State, Partners Break Ground on Bulk Solids Innovation Center

    After five years of discussions, planning, and proposals, the Kansas State University Bulk Solids Innovation Center is ready for construction following a groundbreaking ceremony on July 10.   "The Bulk Solids Innovation Center is a prime example of how Kansas State University...
