  • Hapman Tubular Drag Conveyor Case Study

    Hapman Tubular Drag Conveying Technology (Whitepaper)

    The analysis of the optimal conveying method begins with understanding system and material variables such as; energy requirements, bulk density of material, purchasing and storage of material prior to use, conveying distance, space and location, and durability and maintenance. These are just a few of the many elements that must be considered in conveyor selection and design.

  •  Hapman Solid and Liquid Pre-blending

    Hapman Solid and Liquid Pre-blending (Whitepaper)

    One of the perpetual challenges in the chemical industry has been finding an ideal way to effectively mix solids and liquids to create optimal slurry – and at the same time, utilizing the least amount of floor space, energy and human resources. The most common method for combining powders and liquids is to introduce the powder into an agitated tank that has been filled with the liquid component. The typical process for this is to have an operator manually open the tank hatch, lift the bag of powdered product, slit it open, and then dump the dry contents into the tank. The mixture is then blended through the agitation process. The disadvantages of this method are that it produces substantial dusting, creates inefficient liquid-to-solids contact, and is labor intensive.

  • Hapman Aluminum Casting Foundry Case Study (Whitepaper)

    The engineering team at Hapman worked closely with RCI to design a solution that achieved their dust and noise reduction goals. The system Hapman designed begins with five knock-out stations that vibrate the molded parts, breaking the plaster surrounding them apart. The plaster then falls down into a hopper, while the dust created during this process is contained in dust-collection systems above the knockout stations. The stations are also lined with sound-deadening panels to significantly reduce the noise this process produces.

  • Hapman By-Products Case Study

    Hapman Fiber By-Products Case Study (Whitepaper)

    Pellet mills receive, sort, grind, dry, compress, screen and bag wood waste into conveniently handled pelletized fuel. All pellet mills must meet industry standards to assure uniformity in the final product. These standards include density, dimensions and allowable fines (limited amount of sawdust from pellet breakdown to avoid dust while loading and problems with pellet flow when in a pellet stove). Operations with too many fines must continually reprocess pellets, which adds cost and decreases productivity.

  •  Hapman Mobile Mixing Skid Case Study

    Hapman Mobile Mixing Skid Case Study (Whitepaper)

    Staying competitive in process manufacturing requires even the fittest of companies to be agile and dynamic. The complexities of manufacturing have compounded over the last decade as economic metrics have been expanded to account for global shifts and quickly changing trends. Production facilities that were once expansive and centralized have now been reorganized, adjusting to smaller volumes and utilizing regional production sites. Cost reductions and environmental stewardship initiatives cross paths as production reclaims revenue sources in forgotten waste streams.

  • Venture Measurement Monitoring Bulk Solids Inventory

    Monitoring Bulk Solids Inventory (White Paper)

    Bulk solids inventory exists in a wide range of industries including agriculture, grain processing, feed production, plastic processing, concrete production, and many more. Reliable monitoring of these inventories and efficient management of the corresponding data requires a choice of sensing technologies such as weight or level sensors as well as up-to-date, efficient data management systems.
