Featured Equipment

  • Rotary Airlock Valve Principals and Rotor Design

    Rotary airlock valves are a critical component in many material handling systems. From dust collectors to pneumatic conveying systems, rotary airlocks not only control the feed rate but also minimize air leakage between equipment above and below the valve with differing levels of pressure or vacuum...

  • Dual-Outlet, Heavy-Duty Volumetric Feeder

    Metalfab manufactures a dual-outlet, heavy-duty volumetric feeder that, in conjunction with its Posibin, meters powder with near gravimetric accuracy. This combination eliminates the need to disassemble upstream/downstream equipment to reclaim unused powders remaining in the bin or silo. Process...

  • Equipment Manufacturers Stress Compliance with OSHA’s Silica Dust Deadline

    In a move to help all silica dust-producing operations comply with impending rule changes, two pioneers in industrial dust control are reminding customers that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) respirable crystalline silica (RCS) dust emissions Final Rule (OSHA §1910....

  • Flexicon Introduces Low-Profile Bulk Bag Filler with Explosion-Proof Controls

    Flexicon introduces a Twin-Centerpost bulk bag filler with XP controls and reduced height posts for low-headroom applications. It is equipped with a manual fill head height adjustment to accommodate smaller bag sizes, pneumatically retractable bag hooks, an inflatable connector to seal the bag...

  • How to Properly Select Slide Gates

    At the most basic level, a gate is an object which permits passage into or through an enclosure. Gates as they apply to pneumatic conveying/material handling are no different. At the most basic level, gates open and close a path of material flow. The most effective means of accomplishing this task...

  • SWECO Introduces Atlas Gyratory Sifters

    SWECO announces the launch of the new Atlas gyratory sifter product line. The Atlas sifter is the company’s largest, offering high-capacity screening in a low-maintenance, operator-friendly design. The horizontal, uniform gyratory motion of the Atlas provides high performance, resulting...

  • Air Sampling Pump Calibration

    The Flow Detective air sampling pump calibrator has the ability to measure pulsation with a 70-hour battery life and double the duration of competitive products. There is an estimated 18,000 new cases of breathing or lung problems a year caused or made worse by work, and an estimated 12,000 deaths...

  • Key Technology Introduces Veryx with Sort-to-Grade

    Key Technology, a member of the Duravant family of operating companies, introduces Veryx digital sorters equipped with a patented Sort-to-Grade (STG) software for both wet and frozen potato strips. While Veryx targets all foreign material (FM) for removal, STG recognizes and categorizes every...

  • Teamwork and its Role in Dust Mitigation Strategy

    It is a warm spring morning and you have just sat down at your desk after a fantastic weekend with family and friends. The sun is shining, your personal batteries are fully charged, and you are ready to take on the day. You see a notice in your inbox for an emergency team meeting scheduled to take...

  • High-Capacity Cone Mill for Sticky, Moist, Fragile Materials

    A new 29.5-in.-diam CGM 750 cone mill gently grinds fatty, heat-sensitive, sticky, moist, or fragile materials into uniform particle sizes with minimal fines, at rates to 35 tn/hr. Vertical material flow and low-energy grinding action with short residence times yield close particle size...
