  • Deduster Offers Increased Output

    PTI manufactures tablet dedusters and capsule polishers combined with metal detectors and loading systems for pharmaceutical solid dose production, and is offering the enhanced PharmaFlex iSeries Deduster. The latest model features several upgrades over its predecessor, including an output...

  • Open-Style Pressure Blower Wheels

    Open-style pressure blower wheels are ideal for efficiently handling smoke, gases, light non-abrasive dust, or short strand material that might otherwise get caught up on a shrouded wheel. There are variable wheel diameters and a choice of six outlet sizes for efficient fan selection across a wide...

  • Vertical Screw Conveyor Systems and Bucket Elevators

    WAM offers vertical screw conveyor systems and bucket elevators to move powder and bulk materials vertically. A vertical screw conveyor is used when capacity, height, and elevated products meet easy-to-handle characteristics. A bucket elevator is used when the capacity gets big, the elevation gets...

  • New Web-Based Dust Collection Diagnostics System

    Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC) offers a web-based system for fast, accurate, and comprehensive dust collection diagnostics. The new GoldLink system provides around-the-clock access to dust collection operations by monitoring four preset analog inputs and 16 preset digital inputs. Designed...

  • How Wall Friction Effects Hopper Angles

    Measuring a bulk solid's wall friction is critical to ensuring reliable flow. The wall friction angle for a given bulk material/wall surface combination is calculated from the results of a wall friction test. From this angle, the hopper angle required to ensure mass flow is determined. Hopper...

  • Feeder System for Ceramics

    Recently, 3SigmaSystems commissioned a new bulk bag unloader/loss-in-weight batching system for the ceramics industry. The system features the Model FP54 BBU to properly refill the LIW feeder upon demand. A Model SS18 GeoMate feeder was provided to batch both ceramic powder (-325 mesh) and ceramic...

  • Conveyor Compresses, Shapes Filled Bags

    The conveyor pictured is designed to compress and shape filled bags to create uniform bag thicknesses and ultimately uniform layers during the palletizing process. Filled bags are typically bottom heavy or tear shaped when discharged from the filling scale. After conveying through the closing...

  • Kellogg Co., BCTGM Announce Master Contract Agreement

    Kellogg Co. and the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco and Grain Millers (BCTGM) union announced the ratification of a new five-year master contract that covers the company's four Ready-To-Eat Cereal (RTEC) plants in Battle Creek, MI, Memphis, TN, Omaha, NE, and Lancaster, PA. The current contract...

  • Redesigned Lab Mill Has Larger Grinding Jars

    This redesigned lab mill with new larger grinding jars is designed for low-cost small production capabilities. Six jars can run simultaneously. All-polyurethane or solvent-resistant jars with leak-tight covers are available with 0.45- and 1.32-l slurry capacities. The round bottom grinding jars...

  • Flexible Screw Conveyors Used As Feeders

    Spiroflow flexible screw conveyors (FSCs), often used as feeders, provide a dust-free, low-energy, low-maintenance, and low-cost feeding solution. Accuracies of 3-5% are typical when using a flexible screw conveyor as a volumetric feeder, depending on the size of the screw conveyor and the product...
