  • Size Reduction Spotlight - September 09

    Roller Mill The VRM roller mill provides efficient fine grinding of soft to medium-hard materials. Designed for continuous operation, the VRM’s basic concept is based on the combination of a high-quality mill body and highly efficient TC and Alpha classifiers. The mill body is designed with...

  • Using Laser Diffraction to Quantify Fines and Coarse Particle Content

    Paul Kippax, PhD In many solids handling industries, laser diffraction is now the method of choice for particle size measurement. Fast and nondestructive—and with the most advanced systems, also highly automated— it is suitable for a wide array of materials. This article looks...

  • Editor's Choice

    Static Monitoring/Interlock System The danger of fires and explosions posed by a buildup of static electricity when filling or discharging material from Type C FIBCs and similar semi-conductive containers is controlled by the Earth-Rite FIBC grounding system. The FM- and ATEX-approved systems...

  • Finding the Right Supplier for Your Powder Processing Equipment

    Kathy Moncur Kathy Moncur When considering the capital investment for powder processing equipment, often the hardest part of the decision-making process is finding the right supplier...

  • Mechanical Conveying Spotlight - September 09

    Secondary Tensioner The Duo-Spring secondary tensioner utilizes a patent-pending mounting plate that allows the cleaning blade to be spring tensioned in either a pull-up or push-up position. This specially designed configurability features two different mounting options that leave extra clearance...

  • Improving Your Batch or Continuous Process: Options in Feeder Technologies for Dry Powders

    By Sharon Nowak The volatile state of today's global economy is forcing dry powder processors to evaluate more-efficient and more-cost-effective technical solutions for their processes. Key objectives such as optimizing margins by minimizing downtime due to maintenance, cleaning and...

  • Heavy-Duty Weigh Belt Feeders

    High-capacity, heavy-duty MH and MDH weigh belt feeders accurately measure and control feed rates of up to 3000 tn/h. Originally designed for the cement and steel industries, these models feed materials such as limestone, mill scale, dolomite, iron ore pellets, fluorspar, and coke. The feeders were...

  • Heavy-Duty Vibratory Feeders

    These vibratory feeders are designed to smoothly convey products. Flow of material is adjustable and the flow rate can be variable or fixed. Available in electric- or air-operated models, the feeders can be designed with above-, below-, or side-mounted drives and can be arranged for base mounting...

  • Magnetic Belt Feeder

    The MBF series magnetic belt feeder is designed to trap ferrous materials that would otherwise contaminate final products. Engineered to provide maximum elimination of metal contaminants, it consists of a belted conveyor with an integrated magnetic head pulley. As product reaches the end of the...

  • Abrasion-Resistant Ceramic Feeder

    Lined with thick ceramic coating designed to resist the most abrasive materials, the abrasion-resistant ceramic feeder offers heavy-duty design and construction. The heavy-duty construction consists of: cast body and end plate; .1-in-thick ceramic bore; tungsten carbide throat protection; heavy-...
