Featured Equipment

  • System Dries, Cools, Screens Agglomerated Sugar

    This sanitary, custom candy processing system combines a vibrating fluid bed dryer, cooler, screener, and integral baghouse collector to dry agglomerated sugar, cool it with ambient air, and screen out oversized chunks. Each stage in the system uses the company's proprietary vibrating...

  • Particle Shape and Size Analysis

    The new Analysette 28 ImageSizer analyzes particle shape and size of dry, free-flowing powders and bulk solids in a measuring range from 20 µm to 20 mm. Via the optical analysis of particle shape and particle size, damaged particles, contaminates, agglomerates, or oversized or undersized...

  • Airlocks for Medium-Duty Applications

    The DMN M-Series valves are highly engineered rotary airlocks designed for medium-duty bulk solids applications. The M-Series is an efficient alternative for processes where valves with outboard bearings would be over specified. The valves are suited for the conveying of powders or granular...

  • Optimizing the Inspection of Powdered and Granulated Products for Contamination

    Haunting today’s food manufacturers and processors is the possible recall of a product contaminated with a foreign material––a public event that would be costly not only in the direct costs of recalling the product, but also in lost retailer and consumer confidence and damaged...

  • Combustible Dust Standards for Dust Collection Systems

    The release of NFPA 652: Standard on Fundamentals of Combustible Dusts will have a direct impact on plant operations that utilize dust collectors. The new standard is designed to provide the basic principles and requirements for handling combustible dusts. Ultimately, NFPA 652 is meant to provide...

  • Compact, Decentralized AC Vector Drives

    NORD offers a new product that fills the gaps between simple motor starters and complex AC drives. Because many applications do not utilize the immense scope of functionality found in modern frequency inverters, the company developed the SK 180E. This product focuses on the essential functionality...

  • Forensics Would Reveal Why Silo Collapsed

    The recent collapse of a large silo containing cement powder at Port Adelaide is exactly the kind of industrial incident that needs forensic engineering, according to a specialist in this field. Apart from determining the most probable cause of failure, it will deliver the information quickly...

  • High-Speed Vertical Form and Seal Machine

    The XPdius i-130 vertical form and seal machine is designed to reduce cost of ownership. It has many tool-less features that save time when loading film, replacing pull belts, and performing bag width changeovers. The design allows for complete accessibility to the mechanics of the machine. The...

  • Larger Explosion Isolation Valves Available

    The Interceptor-FV explosion isolation valve is now available in line sizes up to 44 in. in diameter. The valves are designed to prevent explosion propagation from one vessel to another through interconnected piping. During normal operating conditions, the Interceptor-FV is mechanically retained...

  • Stainless Steel Cartridge Jet Pulse Dust Collectors

    Sternpulse jet pulse cartridge dust collectors are now available in 304 and 316 stainless construction, for dust materials, such as reactive chemicals and food products that are not compatible with painted steel. The design is compact, easy to maintain, and provides an energy efficient solution to...
