Featured Equipment

  • Particle Segregation Can Be Costly

    Most processes must produce solids products that are uniformly mixed. Segregation of these particles can occur as they are being handled, and the results can be quite costly. The pharmaceutical industry, among others, is susceptible to problems with particle segregation. If fines and coarse...

  • CrossMix High-Efficiency Fluidizing Mixer Introduced

    The CrossMix is a high-efficiency fluidizing mixer capable of blending solids in as little as seven seconds. Compared to a typical 15-minute mix cycle for a ribbon blender, a much smaller CrossMix can be used in its place. The twin-paddle design gently lifts and fluidizes solids in a weightless...

  • Applying Gate Valves with Rotary Airlocks in Pneumatic Conveying

    Whether it be agriculture, chemicals, food, minerals, plastics, textiles, or other industry sectors, the most common practice for handling dry bulk solids in a dilute-phase production process is to feed material from a silo through a rotary airlock and into a positive pressure pneumatic conveying...

  • Volumetric Feeder with Carbon Package

    Scaletron Industries Ltd introduces the Model VMF-28/CP volumetric feeder with carbon package (Model VMF-28/CP). It is a precision loss-in-weight measurement system designed specifically to provide accuracy in adding activated carbon in water treatment operations. It features an integrated scale...

  • Unloading Ammonium Nitrate Prill with a Tubular Drag Conveyor System

    Dyno Nobel manufactures explosives and offers explosion management services to customers in mining, oil and gas exploration, fertilizers, construction, and concrete and building materials. The core of Dyno Nobel’s operation is manufacturing ammonium nitrate prill in bulk and safely...

  • Filling Cabinet for Safe Loading, Dust-Free Work Place

    The Van Beek filling cabinet is a solution for safe loading in the work place and to reduce fine dust. It not only protects against dust emissions, but also increases production capacity and minimizes product loss.      Whether this is done with a scoop, from a bag, big bag, or...

  • Predicting Blending Behavior through Dynamic Powder Characterization

    In industries as diverse as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food production, and metal powder processing, homogeneity is crucial to the quality of a finished product. Whether it is the mechanical properties of a sintered metal component, the uniform dispersion of an active ingredient in a drug, or...

  • Bulk Bag Discharger for Explosive Environments

    The new Bulk-Out bulk bag discharging system is designed for use in explosive environments. This BFC series model features a pneumatically-powered hoist and trolley to raise and position the bag inside the discharger frame, eliminating the risk of potential sparks from electrical equipment or fork...

  • Preventing Silo Failures

    Silo failure is not an uncommon occurrence in the bulk solids industry. Numerous silos that have failed due to incorrect design, poor construction/installation, improper operation, or lack of maintenance are reported every year. Failures can range from a small deformation in the silo shell to...

  • Planetary Dispersers with PLC Recipe Controls

    Ross PowerMix planetary dispersers with PLC recipe controls deliver excellent batch-to-batch consistency in the mixing of high-solids, high-viscosity applications. Two independently-driven agitators – a high-speed sawtooth disperser and a low-speed planetary stirrer – make the PowerMix...
