  • Static Dissipative Urethane Hose Features High Flex Life for Feeding Extruders

    The FlexStat static dissipative polyurethane plastic pellet transfer hose promotes workplace safety and withstands suction cycling when feeding plastic extruders. It is specially formulated with a clear thermoplastic polyurethane that is reinforced with a rigid black external ABS helix and an...

  • Explosion Proof May Not be the Answer

    Dust explosions are a known hazard in bulk solid manufacturing and process facilities. In fact, there were 281 confirmed dust incidents from 1980 through 2005. From these, 119 lives have been lost in addition to the 718 injuries resulting from these incidents.1     One technique...

  • Magnetic Separator Video Highlights Improved Ergonomics, Cleaning Design

    Industrial Magnetics Inc. has released a demonstration video of its SimpleClean RotoDrawer magnetic housing that highlights its improved ergonomics and innovative cleaning design. The video shows an equipment operator gain easy access to the magnets to perform routine removal of collected...

  • Particulate Continuous Emissions Monitor for Stacks

    This instrument provides particulate CEM (Continuous Emissions Monitor) for large stacks, baghouses, cartridge-type dust collectors, cyclones, and some ESPs (electrostatic precipitators). It offers the performance of a light scatter PM CEM with lower maintenance and higher accuracy and low level...

  • What Is the Best Type of Feeder for My Application?

    There are many types of feeders available today. The most widely used include rotary valves, vibratory trays/tubes, belts, and screw feeders. The type of feeder to be selected for a particular application is dependant upon several factors. First, it is essential to clearly define the application...

  • Explosion-Proof Bucket Elevator Alignment Control

    The explosion-proof Model VA-X bucket elevator alignment control is designed to indicate when the head or boot section of a bucket elevator drifts too far out of alignment. It can be used to signal a problem or simply shut down the bucket elevator leg. The Model VA-X control device has a sequential...

  • Portable Explosion-Proof Dust Collectors

    These portable explosion-proof dust collectors feature the proven FRV, DS2-EX series portable vacuums and NA35 Series portable immersion separation vacuums joined with an exclusive point-of-source extraction swing arm system, designed specifically to safely collect airborne combustive dusts, gases...

  • Should My Material Be Tested On-Site?

    In the past, we have discussed flow properties testing and the need for this type work to ensure reliable bin and hopper flow. The Jenike Shear Tester is a device that is recognized as the standard for testing bulk solids by ASTM (D-6128-97) in the U.S. and in Europe, and the test procedure is well...

  • Conveyor Distributes Bulk Commodities into Dozens of Bulk Storage Bins

    This conveyor is designed to distribute bulk commodities into dozens of bulk storage bins with staggered inlet openings. Material is received from a bucket elevator, conveyed along the length of the central conveyor, and then elevated and discharged through a tripper and onto a cross belt conveyor...

  • Spherical Pipeline Magnetic Separator

    The Magnattack spherical pipeline separator houses a high-intensity magnetic element with flux strengths ranging from 10,000 to more than 12,000 gauss in larger models. The design effectively removes ferrous metal and work-hardened stainless steel. The housing is easily installed with tri-clamp...
