Powder/Bulk Solids

The Source for Dry Processing and Bulk Handling Technology

Featured Equipment

  • 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...

  • Packaging

    In 1983, when Powder/Bulk Solids was founded, the packaging industry was undergoing some serious scrutiny. Protecting products against tampering was top of mind following the Tylenol scare of 1982. Tamper-resistant and tamper-evident packaging became crucial to consumer products companies....

  • Bulk Bags/Bagging Equipment

    Bulk Bag Discharging System This bulk bag unloader provides a way for non-free-flowing material that is hardened during shipping to be deblocked with the addition of deblocking rams. Along with massage paddles, the deblocking rams condition the hardened material lump size so the material can...

  • Storage

    Loss-in-Weight Portable Bin Unloader The design of these loss-in-weight portable bin unloaders allows for accurately discharging and metering material stored and transported in either side- or bottom-discharge portable bins. The system can be configured for either continuous loss-in-weight...

  • Technology Review

    Air Filter Available in three ASHRAE efficiencies (MERV 11, 13, and 14), the Riga-V air filter offers greater dust-holding capacity and lower pressure drop than comparable filters. A high-lofted synthetic media in a proprietary V-pleat configuration optimizes performance. Benefits include...

  • Weighing & Batching

    Compact Industrial Scales Signum compact industrial scales provide a wide variety of functions that can be customized to the application level and needs of a client’s application. Three predefined application levels are available in each of three Signum models; Signum Regular SIWR...
