  • Screw Feeder Design for Metering Bulk Materials

    Screw feeders are used in thousands of material handling applications and designed to meter bulk materials at a controlled feed rate. A standard screw conveyor is normally fed by another conveyor and the amount of material being discharged is directly proportional to the amount being introduced at...

  • The Three E’s in Dust Collection: Exposure, Efficiency, and Emissions

    When it comes to controlling industrial dust, the equipment market has long focused on the efficiency rating of filters. But Chrissy Klocker, an applications engineering manager with Donaldson Co., says two other “E’s” — exposure and emissions — are more important...

  • Stainless Pulse Jet Collector

    C&W Environmental Solutions introduces its newest pulse jet collector. Featuring stainless steel product contact or total food-grade stainless steel, it is capable of handling many types of combustible dust. Designed with easy access for clean side pop in-out filter exchange, this unit also...

  • High-Vacuum Filter-Receiver

    This filter-receiver is a high-vacuum device used in processing as a collection device in pneumatic material transfer. The baghouses can handle pressures up to 14psi or 7Hg. The baghouses can be manufactured in either stainless steel or painted carbon steel. The equipment incorporates SDC’s...

  • How to Troubleshoot Pneumatic Conveying Systems

    Pneumatic conveying is a simple concept. How do I transfer product from point A to point B? Though it’s simple, troubleshooting them can sometimes seem like a daunting task. We will attempt to break down the four main areas of any conveying system: what factors indicate a problem and what to...

  • Combustible Material Vacuum

    HafcoVac offers the new ATEX EX Series vacuum. Designed to collect and control a wide range of combustible materials, it provides six times the suction of an electric vacuum without the risks of electric motor burnout. The ATEX EX Series is OSHA- and NFPA-compliant and ATEX-Certified in Class 1,...

  • How Do Temperature and Time Affect Material Flowability?

    There are several reasons why your material does not flow reliably. I hope this article helps to shed light on two of the major influences on material flowability. Typically, there are four environmental conditions the can have an effect on your particular solid’s flow properties. They are...

  • Donaldson Introduces Plug-and-Play Dust Collector

    Donaldson Company Inc. introduces the Packaged Downflo Evolution (DFEP) dust collector, a complete system for collecting industrial dust and fumes. The system includes a Downflo Evolution dust collector from Donaldson Torit, preassembled and shipped with integrated electrical controls, motors...

  • Gravimetric Feeders: The Achilles' Heel of Continuous Manufacturing

    Gravimetric feeders are frequently used in continuous manufacturing processes. A gravimetric feeder relies on a control system that adjusts the speed of the feeder based on loss-in-weight measurements. Since the controller is unable to discern the discharge rate when its hopper is being filled with...

  • Honeywell AR/VR Simulator Trains Workforce, Closes Skills Gap

    Honeywell announces a cloud-based simulation tool that uses a combination of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) to train plant personnel on critical industrial work activities. With as much as 50 percent of industrial plant personnel due to retire within the next five years, the...
