u45b_140772.jpgLarge Diameter Static Dissipative Hose
This line of abrasion-resistant static dissipative hose features an embedded ground wire, a smooth interior, an external helix, and now comes in sizes up to 8 in. I.D. FlexStat static dissipative hose is constructed from polyurethane with an embedded copper grounding wire and is reinforced with a rigid external ABS helix. Featuring sizes from 1¼ to 8 in. I.D., this hose provides 108-1010 Ohms/sq surface resistivity to prevent static buildup and improve plant safety in a wide range of applications. Suitable for powders, light bulk pneumatic conveying, dust collection, and paint spray extraction, the hose has a smooth interior for unrestricted flow and the external wear strip provides drag-resistance. Wall thicknesses for this durable hose range from 0.040 to 0.060 in. and they are offered in standard 25- and 50-ft lengths with plain ends. Flexaust, Warsaw, IN 800-343-0428 www.flexaust.com

u471_140774.jpgHorizontal Fluid Bed Separator
The HFS horizontal fluid bed separator is available for relatively low throughput rates – upwards of approximately 800 kg/hr and suitable for the cleaning of pellets and granules in the plastics processing industry. With the fluid bed separator it is possible to clean thoroughly and effectively even the most difficult of products, such as brittle, fragile, or rubbery bulk materials. The slow cleaning process protects the product and consumes only a minimum of air and energy. The separator is ideal for use not only in plastics processing installations but also in food processing applications and in other applications where the purity of the product is decisive for the manufacturing process, further processing, or the quality of the ultimate product.

u454_140775.jpgSalt Drying System
This new salt drying system features an integral baghouse collector set atop a vibrating fluid bed dryer to capture up to 100% of fine salt particles entrained in the airstream. Returning the fines to the process for recovery as finished product, the Witte bulk salt drying system eliminates the product waste required in systems using cyclones to exhaust process air along with their need for dust collection, conveying, drum handling, and other downstream equipment. Costs for product loss, waste disposal, equipment maintenance, and downtime are eliminated. Further, by placing the reverse pulse jet baghouse collector directly over the fluid bed, the energy-efficient system also permits 50% of the hot exhaust air to be captured and recycled to reduce energy requirements while cutting the volume of air exhausted by 50%, addressing a key factor in quickly securing permits from the EPA. The system is ideal for drying road salt, rock salt, water treatment salt, sea salt, food grade table salt, and other salt products. Witte Company, Inc., Washington, NJ 908-689-6500 www.witte.com
