The Source for Dry Processing and Bulk Handling Technology

Featured Equipment

  • Particle Analysis

    Particle Size Analyzer The Gradex 2000 is a patented PC-controlled device that fully automates the sieve analysis of dry granular materials. By fully automating the entire sieve analysis process, it frees up technicians to perform other work and provides analysis on a more frequent and timely...

  • Instrumentation

    Fixed Thermal-Imaging System A fixed thermal-imaging (FTi) system offers continuous thermal mapping of processing operations and plant surveillance. The system can be used under the harshest plant-operating conditions for measuring temperatures from –4º to 2912ºF with ±...

  • Are Dust Collection Filters Costing You?

    UAS nanofiber filter at 600× magnification How often has buying on price come back to bite you? Probably as often as off-brand batteries that die after just a couple of days, the cheap shirt that falls apart after the first wash, or...

  • Piping, Tubing, & Couplings

    Tube Coupling The Instalok uses an O-ring seal instead of a gasket for a better seal in both vacuum and pressure environments. The O-ring also reduces the water seepage found at times in outside applications. The coupling is designed to align tube ends automatically, so there’s less of...

  • Dust Collection

    In the early 1980s, the dust collection industry was in the midst of a changeover from shaker-type systems to compressed-air cleaning. With the exception of woodworking, large outdoor installations were primarily employing pulse-jet baghouses, which offered the best efficiency and smallest...

  • Mixing & Blending

    Mixing and blending of bulk solids occurs frequently in many industrial processes. Though small-scale mixing and blending functions were in use back in the early days of humankind (e.g., mixing flour, salt, yeast, and water to make bread), today’s competitive production lines...

  • Feeding

    Equipment, customer requirements, technology, and competition have led to growth and change in the feeding-equipment industry over the past 25 years. From an equipment standpoint, many customers back in the early 1980s were still taking cups of materials, weighing them on a scale, and then...

  • Mechanical Conveying

    Over the last quarter-century, many mining and processing operations have experienced increased demand for their product and the need for appropriate conveying equipment to meet that demand. This increase in demand has led to the need for bigger, faster, and more-reliable conveying equipment...

  • Pneumatic Conveying

    At first glance it might appear that pneumatic conveying of dry bulk powders and granules has changed little over the last 25 years. Basic design concepts today are the same as they were in 1980. Systems were and still are categorized as dense or dilute phase, vacuum or pressure. Briefly...

  • Size Reduction

    The evolution of size reduction equipment, particularly in the pharmaceutical industry, is one of gradual adaptation to meet higher standards of sanitation and safety. Size reduction equipment has evolved over the years with respect to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs). Original mill...
