  • Material Handling & Transportation Spotlight - September 08

    Railcar Discharge Vibrator The HCP portable railcar vibrator is used in dovetail brackets and in pockets on hopper cars. Unlike similar hydraulic, pocket, and clamp-on vibrators, the HCP does not damage the railcar. Benefits include reduced unloading time and carryback; low air consumption, which...

  • Tank and Blender Cleaning: CIP Meets DIP

    By Daniel VanderPyl Competitive pressures in today’s world economy necessitate higher productivity in all markets, and the powder and bulk solids sector is no exception. One major obstacle to maximizing production time is the essential CIP (clean-in-place) process required at every product...

  • Mechanical Conveying Spotlight - September 08

    Heavy-Duty Aero-Mechanical Conveyor The heavy-duty TransVair mechanical conveyor (TMC) is manufactured for users that need to operate 24 hours a day and require an internal pressure rating up to 100 psig for handing explosive products. Dust- and gas-tight, the TMC has a patented O-ring tube-seal...

  • Designing Material-Handling Systems for FGD Projects

    By Rajesh Mendiratta, Christopher Humphrey, and Bob Klare Gallery conveyor (Illustration by Andrew Berridge) A great deal of effort has been put into developing...

  • Metal Detection & Separation Spotlight - September 08

    Compact Metal Detector The Phantom-series Vertex fits in restricted spaces where other detectors can’t. The in-line system is designed to integrate with vertical form/fill/seal machines for pouch-packing processes. It is typically situated beneath a multi­head weigher in snack food and...

  • Bearings Cut Downtime at Major Phosphate Plant

    Previous bearings used on this chain mill at a major phosphate plant failed quickly because of shock loading, while the Rexnord SHURLOK roller bearings that replaced them are still in operation months later...

  • Feeders Focus - September 08

    High-Speed Feeders Ac-operated high-speed feeders are designed for high-speed feeding of light, bulky materials. These rugged and powerful feeders are ideal for scales and other applications that require higher throughput and advanced control. In addition to advanced high-speed feed rates, the...

  • Technology Review

    Rotary Screw Compressors Available in flows from 424 to 1024 cfm and pressures to 217 psig, the redesigned DSD direct-drive-series rotary screw compressors feature an optimized Sigma Profile airend, a patent-pending Sigma Control system, and the latest one-to-one direct-drive technology. True...

  • Vertical Shaft Impactor

    The V-Slam, patent pending, Model VS-88 vertical shaft impactor features innovative housing and rotor designs, easy-access low-profile split swing lid, higher operating speed for finer grinding, and capacities up to 500 tn/hr. An optimal hydraulic drive system offers numerous advantages, including...

  • Hammer Mill

    The Model 141 hammer mill reduces friable and fibrous materials into uniform particle sizes from 20 to 300 mesh. Centrifugal force causes pivoting hammers to stand at 90º to the rotating shaft, throwing material against breaker plate ridges in the feed section, and then against perforated 270...
