Featured Equipment

  • Material Handling

    Drum Dumper with Volumetric Feeder This system is designed to discharge and meter powders into the inlet of a conveying system or existing process. The exclusive Lift & Seal system hydraulically seals drums to a carbon steel pour cone for dust-tight and contaminant-free discharge. The unit...

  • Elevators/Elevator Buckets

    Bucket Elevator Segregation of particles in powder blends can cause serious problems, resulting in reduced product quality, dissatisfied customers, the need to rework or scrap batches, missed deliveries, and additional disposal costs. The gentle-handling TipTrak can help eliminate segregation...

  • Feeders

    Pharmaceutical Feeder Developed in conjunction with an international group of pharmaceutical manufacturing and process professionals, the PureFeed AP-300 is available in volumetric and gravimetric configurations for pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and cosmetic applications involving feed rates...

  • Technology Review

    Poured-in-Place Gaskets An updated line of Absolute HEPA and ULPA filters now includes a “poured-in-place” gasket that ensures leak-free performance. Available on all of the company’s gasket-seal Absolute filters, the gasket’s sealing method is uniform in depth and...

  • Technology Review

    Zero-Speed Switches The Maxigard A5000 series zero-speed switches are used to prove rotation or indicate loss of rotation for conveyors, screw feeders, rotary airlocks, mixers, and other mechanical material-handling or -processing equipment. The switches provide a 5-amp SPDT relay output that...

  • Dust Collection

    Cartridge Dust Collectors with Explosion Vent Gold-series dust collectors are now available with a high-performance explosion vent for applications involving capture of explosive dusts. The “X-vent” is manufactured to NFPA standards and is CE and ATEX certified for European use. The...

  • Reducing Energy Costs for Ventilation and Emission Control Systems

    Figure 1: A side-draft hood The mathematics for properly designing ventilation and emissions control systems have been around for a long time, but studies of hundreds of systems show that many such systems waste energy while lacking the...

  • Editor's Choice

    Nanofiber Cartridge Filters Dust collection cartridge filters with nanofiber technology last twice as long as cellulose and 80/20 commodity filters. They also lower total dust collection costs by reducing the number of replacement filters needed, lowering maintenance costs, and decreasing...

  • Pneumatic Conveying

    Dense-Phase Pneumatic Conveying Systems These dense-phase pneumatic conveying systems utilize small amounts of high-pressure, low-velocity air to gently transfer controlled “slugs” of dry powdered or granular materials through enclosed convey lines. The systems reduce component...

  • 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...
