102145.tifTilt-Down Portable Bulk Conveyor
This bulk conveyor with tilt-down portable base fits through tight spaces and provides easy access for removal of the flexible screw. It features a reduced footprint that enables the caster-mounted frame to maneuver through narrow aisles and around corners. With the hopper, support boom, and conveyor assembly tilted down, the unit fits through standard doorways and orients the conveyor tube horizontally, allowing the flexible screw to be removed easily for thorough cleaning and inspection. Each unit is custom configured according to the discharge height, tilt-down height, discharge overhang, and overall size parameters of individual applications. The hopper, which is equipped with a hinged lid, feeds a flexible screw conveyor that transports bulk ingredients ranging from sub-micron powders to large pellets. The enclosed conveyor tube prevents product and plant contamination, while the gentle rolling action of material being conveyed prevents the separation of blends. The rugged inner screw is the only moving part contacting material, resulting in reduced maintenance and increased reliability. Flexicon Corp., Bethlehem, PA 888-353-9426 www.flexicon.com

High-Temperature Vibrating Rod
The SHT-120/140 vibrating rod is ideal for high process temperatures to 482°F. It features a unique design of the patented re-enforced membrane and a new piezo system. The SHT is durable and features a standard insulation tube that insulates the electronics from excessive heat. The entire probe is constructed of stainless steel, and the electronics are mounted inside an IP66/IP67 aluminum enclosure for advanced protection. The unit is built for any type of tough, high-temp application, like fly ash from coal-fired power plants, biomass and wood bioenergy for materials like wood pellets, cement or aggregates when storing crushed limestone, and many types of plastic manufacturing. BinMaster, Lincoln, NE 800-278-4241  www.binmaster.com

102148.tifScreener Line Extension
Rotex offers the line extension to the Megatex XD screener, a high-capacity screening solution designed to provide greater throughput and reliability than conventional screeners in a compact footprint. The line extension provides increased capacity in a small area measuring 9 x 9 x 12 ft, continuous operations at high temperatures, and maximum screening efficiency. The durable machine is ideal for a wide range of high-volume applications with demanding screening requirements, including chemical, food, plastics, abrasives, agriculture, and many other high-volume applications. The machine uses a stacked, multiple deck design to evenly split and distribute the incoming flow of material to all screen decks. The compact machine also results in lower installation costs and reduced maintenance expense. Rotex Global LLC, Cincinnati, OH 800-453-2321 www.rotex.com

102150.tifBulk Bag Discharging System
The patented Material Master bulk bag discharging system provides dust-tight discharge of non-free flowing materials. A Sure-Seal actuated spout clamping system seals the bag discharge spout for dust-tight operation, while a heavy-duty Flo-Master “breaker-bar” bag massaging system ensures product discharge. A powerful Flo-Lock actuated discharge spout closure system halts material flow for partial bag discharging. The system includes a custom operator access platform and fully integrated dust collection. Product contact surfaces are 304 stainless steel. Material Transfer & Storage, Allegan, MI 800-836-7068 www.materialtransfer.com
