  • Dense-Phase Pneumatic Conveying Systems

    Figure 1: Dilute-phase conveying system Pneumatic conveying is achieved by creating a pressure differential along a pipeline and using the air that moves toward the area of lower pressure to move bulk material. This process can be performed with a vacuum inducer or...

  • Product Focus

    Gravity Conveyors Easy to use and maintain, the Air Shoot safely moves dry, fluidizable materials on a low-pressure, air-activated gravity conveyor. Materials-including cement, fly ash, hydrated lime, and PVC resin-move through the shoot in a near-horizontal plane with little change in elevation...

  • Technology Review

    Twin-Auger Open-Mouth Bag Filler The Model 4192 twin-auger open-mouth bag filler is derived from the company’s Weigh Master series of auger fillers to provide higher output rates while maintaining product control and weighing accuracy. Filling rates of 7 to 10 50-lb bags/min and accuracies...

    Rupture Disk The PROLP rupture disk operates in low-pressure vessels where equipment operating costs are a key consideration. It has a fully opening, perimeter-scored design that utilizes a unique computerized load-cell technology. Because of advances in scoring accuracy and precision, this...

  • Feeders

    Quick-Take-Apart Volumetric Feeder This volumetric feeder can be taken apart with auger removal from either end. All removable parts are secured with hand knobs, making disassembly simple and tool-free. Slide bars mounted in linear bearings provide easy operator interface by supporting the...

  • Instrumentation & Process Automation

    Pocket Thermometers Company offers three rugged and user-friendly handheld thermometers for measuring thermocouples (Wahl TM602), RTDs (Wahl TM612), and both T/C and RTDs (Wahl TM630) in the harshest on-site process environments. The respective pocket thermometer models can measure with accuracy...

  • Typical Process-Weighing Applications

    Figure 1: Level by weight Process weighing relates to the weighing of a powder material as part of a production process. The technology includes continually monitoring a material in a silo, discharging material by weight or rate, or even weighing products on the...

  • Pneumatic Conveying

    Semidense-Phase Conveyors HC-series conveyors offer a new range of high-capacity semidense-phase pneumatic conveying for single or multiple ingredients. They are designed to handle abrasive and fluidizable materials. Standard units have conveying capacities up to 80 tons/hr or more, depending on...

  • Process Optimization through Online Particle Size Analysis

    The Malvern Insitec online particle size analyzer Online analysis is becoming increasingly widespread for the control of milling processes because moving process analysis from the lab into production can generate considerable cost savings. Conventional quality...
