  • CresTechnologies Develops Seal for Airswept Dryers

    CresTechnologies has developed a new seal for airswept dryers like rotary dryers, rotary calciners, and rotary kilns. The problem with many of the seals that are used today is that they are not flexible enough to close the gap around the rotary shell during its complete rotation. This is...

  • How Industry Expertise Ensures Correct Flexible Screw Conveyor Selection and Process Uptime

    Most if not all manufacturing operations that deal with bulk materials will agree that downtime and loss of production are at the top of their list of process concerns. Downtime in a bulk material handling operation can usually be traced to the equipment that moves the material throughout the...

  • SMART Biomass Storage and Feeding System

    SMART containers are a robust and cost-effective biomass storage and feeding system built from repurposed sea containers. The push-pull wedge-floor system in these bins meters material output evenly and consistently. The bins provide a fast, flexible, convenient, and economical solution for storage...

  • Tubular Conveying is Not So Obvious Until You Look Inside

    The list of industrial conveyor options is long. Aeromechanical, pneumatic, vacuum, screw auger—all are good choices depending on your application. But, if you’re looking for a gentle, dust-free way to transport your materials, the tubular drag variety is your best bet. Tubular...

  • Level Detection: Baghouse Dust Collectors

    The Dynatrol DJ level switch is designed for application to either high or low point level detection of bulk solids. It operates successfully on applications such as baghouses, cyclone separators, and above airlocks. Maintain consistent results on chemical powders, minerals, and many other...

  • 4 Signs of Bucket Elevator Inefficiency

    Continuous bucket elevators are widely used in many facilities to transport bulk solids. While a well-designed continuous bucket elevator is an effective means of material transport, there are factors that can degrade the overall efficiency of a unit. In this article, we highlight four signs of...

  • Powerful Benefits of IIoT in Manufacturing

    Welcome to the connected world. Virtually every home today has some form of connected device be it a smartphone, Alexa, Google Home, video doorbells, networked sprinkler systems, smart plugs and smart lighting, and yes, networked refrigerators and microwaves. We can start our cars and unlock our...

  • Ross Introduces More Versatile Mixer/Reactor

    Ross introduces a more versatile mixer/reactor that is especially suited for temperature-critical formulations of medium to high viscosity under stringent vacuum/pressure constraints.  The Model VMC VersaMix is a multi-purpose triple-shaft mixer/reactor designed for up to 350°F from 29.5...

  • New Belt Speed Sensor

    The Model BSD (belt speed detector) is a "traction action" motion control that indicates when a conveyor belt has slowed or quit moving altogether. The unit can be adjusted as an overspeed, underspeed, or zero speed control. The output of the Model BSD can be wired into a PLC or DCS, or...

  • SMART Becomes Standard in Vacuum Generator

    piCOMPACT23 SMART is an IO-Link-ready vacuum generator platform available from Piab. Offering operation with either standard 24V IO or IO-Link, the new SMART compact all-in-one ejector is ready to meet the future. Previously offered as an optional added feature, IO-Link is now included as a...
