Featured Equipment

  • Flush-Mount Valve

    In addition to standard features of full port opening to prevent bridging, a self-cleaning seal area to promote longer life, and no pinch points which eliminates jamming, the flush mount valve is designed to eliminate the dead space around the valve outlet in precision mixers, where despite the...

  • Rotary Airlock Valves

    Three types of heavy-duty rotary airlocks are available: Drop Thru, Blow Thru, and Side Entry. All units come standard with regreasable bearings, helical gearboxes, predrilled body vents, and predrilled air purge connections. These valves are rated up to 20 psi pressure differentials and are...

  • Rotary Valve Cavity Air Purge

    Smoot offers the cavity air purge process on its entire line of rotary valves to reduce abrasion on the rotor, cylinder, and endplates. This patented design uses low-pressure air from the convey blowers and purges the material from the cavity between the shroud and the housing plates. This air...

  • Rhino Rotary Valve

    The Rhino rotary "R" valve is designed for continuous discharge of dry, free-flowing, low-abrasive solids in gravity flow or low-pressure systems. This rotary airlock valve is equipped with neoprene rubber-tipped rotor vanes, ensuring a superior seal and cost-efficient maintenance over...

  • Series K Easy Clean Slide Gates

    The Series K easy clean slide gate is for applications where frequent cleaning is required. The easy clean slide gate allows easy and quick disassembly without tools. Constructed from 304 stainless steel with UHMW pressure plates, they are available in sizes from 2 to 8 in. with tube stub...

  • Rotary Airlock Valves

    Drop Through (DT) and Blow Through (BT) rotary airlock valves are designed for sanitary pneumatic convey systems operating within -15 in. Hg to +15 PSIG with 6- to 12-in.-capacity options. The standard nine-blade rotor positions two blades to always be in contact with the discharge side of the...

  • Particulate Monitor for Dryers

    This particulate monitor is designed for chemical spray dryers and pharmaceutical powder fluid bed dryers. Moisture present in a drying process will not affect operation nor will the buildup of wet powders. The company’s proprietary combination of induction technology and a protected probe...

  • Non-Contact, NIR Moisture Sensors

    These NIR moisture sensors are available for the measurement of solids and slurries in the PPM to 95% moisture range. The online model, the IR-3000, can measure plastic pellets, nylon, PVB polyethylene, and similar materials in pipes or vessels using its patented crystal viewing window to...

  • Easy 8 Weigh Scale Module

    The Easy 8 is a single channel plug-in module that reads, conditions, and digitizes load cell sensor and strain gage signals commonly found in process weighing applications. It is an ideal plug-in solution for stand-alone, small machine applications in which weighing and weight-based controls are...

  • Custom-Built Controls

    NBE controls and automation engineering expertise ensures U.S. and IEC/ISO compliance of all systems in applications including: the commissioning of a complete, SCADA-integrated, NBE processing line; to the tie-in of bulk material handling equipment to a legacy controls and automation architecture...
