  • New Spin Loader Virtually Eliminates Particle Separation

    Available in two carbon steel models (SL100, 8 5/8-in.-diam inlet with a 2-hp motor) and (SL200, 10 ¾-in.-diam inlet with a 5-hp motor), Metlafab’s new spin loader allows utilization of bulk storage facilities to their fullest capacity, while eliminating the pyramiding that occurs when...

  • Vibratory Tables Available in Flat or Grid Deck

    BPS vibratory tables are available in a complete line of air- or electric-powered models with load capacities to 10 tons. These versatile vibratory tables are used for settling product contents in drums, bulk bags, portable bins, bulk boxes, gaylords, lever packs, concrete, foundries, and moulds...

  • Alternative Fuels for Cement and Lime Plants

    Cement manufacturing is particularly energy-intensive. In order to reduce the use of expensive primary fuels like coal and oil, cement plant operators focus increasingly on alternative fuels and raw materials (AFR). The use is generally focused on the fuels. The manufacturing process, the end...

  • Sweeper Nozzles vs. Fluidizing Disks: What’s the Difference?

    The differences between two common pneumatic flow aids, the rubber fluidizing disk and the sweeper nozzle, may not always be obvious. Although they have some similarities, they also contain some very significant design and performance differences that must be considered in order to assure...

  • Batch Mixer Enhances Production

    The GBM is a single-shaft paddle mixer for effective powder mixing solutions that is available in sizes from 50 to 4400 l of useful volume per batch. High production efficiency is the result of a short mixing time - varying between 8 to 12 batches per hour - the complete de-agglomeration of lumps,...

  • Flexible Post Blending

    Flexible post blenders combine blending operations with milling, sifting, compaction, bin-to-bin transfer, and discharge directly from a single sanitary, easily maintained column.   Fully automated and recipe-controlled blenders reduce operator error and encourage repeatability. The...

  • New Inline Mixer Shortens Production Processes

    The new IKA high-performance inline mixer CMX reduces production times when blending solids into liquids about at least 50% compared to conventional inline devices. This is enabled by a two-stage design with a pumping and dispersing stage. It guarantees a stable circulation even with increasing...

  • Palletizer Automatically Raises and Lowers Loads

    The P3 all-around spring level loader improves the efficiency of pallet loading and unloading operation. A system of heavy-duty springs automatically lower or raise a pallet as weight is added or removed. By doing so, the P3 spring level loader maintains the top layer of boxes at an easy to...

  • Evasser Bin Aerator Promotes Material Flow

    The Evasser bin aeration device maintains the flow of dry bulk powders and granular solids in storage vessels. Monitor’s booted Evasser aerator is compact, durable, and capable of aerating/fluidizing many types of materials in bins, hoppers, and silos. It operates by constantly presenting air...
