  • Loss-in-Weight Feeders Provide High Accuracy

    Vibra Screw offers loss-in-weight (LIW) feeders that provide accuracies to ± 1/4% to 1/2%, weighing ounces to tons and feeding materials from fine powders to fibrous or flaky materials. Control of batch size and feed time is provided through a microprocessor-based controller that eliminates...

  • Automated Printing for Boxes, Bags, Blanks

    The latest addition to Iconotech’s KR line is the Optimizer KR universal printing and feeding system. Designed for medium- to high-volume batch runs of rsc cases, die cuts, and multi-wall Kraft bags, the Optimizer KR-U consists of the Optimizer printer integrated with the KR staging, indexing...

  • High-Accuracy Weighing and Batching

    The GYRO EX Series 920 feeder/discharger is both a loss-in-weight feeder and a bin discharger, all in one unit. Using the power of rotary vibration, it generates a pure gyratory motion to feed almost any granular material, irrespective of particle size or difficult handling characteristics. Also, a...

  • Hang-Weigh Filler Eliminates Recalibration

    Hapman’s hang-weighing option on its mobile bulk bag filler eliminates the need for recalibration after moving the unit to another location. In addition, the top-mounted load cell design removes the risk of potential damage to the sensitive weight sensors when moving the system throughout the...

  • High-Speed Heat Sealer

    The Doboy S-CH provides a high-speed alternative to sewn bag closures. The S-CH heat seals poly or laminate bags, producing a strong sift-proof closure that reduces potential product infestation at line speeds up to 100 ft/min. Capable of sealing bags with reclosure...

  • Versatile Solids Flow Detectors

    The Model SFI and Model SFD-2 solids flow detectors provide analog or relay outputs to indicate the flow/no-flow condition of powders and bulk solid materials in processes from automated systems with pneumatic lines to gravity chutes and feeders. These units use microwave Doppler radar technology...

  • Micro Weighing Systems

    These systems offer standard and customized micro material weighing to weigh materials that require accurately measured ingredients that are critical to the batch integrity. These systems can be manual, semi-automatic, or fully automated. Within the solution of the micro systems, Prater-Sterling...

  • When Things Go Wrong: How to Address a Solids Flow Problem

    As a consultant to the bulk solids handling industry for so many years, I have been involved in numerous approaches to solids handling problems. The process usually starts problem. This typically results in the submission of a with a telephone conversation concerning a particular proposal for...

  • Pharmaceutical Vacuums

    Nilfisk CFM introduces new vacuums to its White Line – industrial vacuums designed specifically for the pharmaceutical and OEM markets. White Line vacuums are ideal for facility maintenance and continuous-duty process integration within applications where hygiene is essential. The new Nilfisk...

  • Insertion Style Pitot

    The VAP3 pitot from Eastern Instruments is an insertion-style pitot that can be installed in nearly any ductwork for extremely accurate air flow measurement in both clean and particulate-laden air. The VAP3 pitot’s plug-resistant design allows for installation in duct work where many other...
