  • Combustible Dust White Paper - Creating a Management of Change Process

    Combustible dust safety standards such as NFPA 652 require facilities that handle or generate combustible dust to implement a Management of Change (MOC) program. This white paper provides clear guidance for overcoming the hurdles and successfully implementing strong MOC procedures, including a worked example.   What you will learn: Understand why MOC is so important for Combustible Dust Safety and NFPA Compliance. Identify critical success factors to overcome common obstacles while establishing a working MOC Process. Walk away with the 8-Steps needed to create an MOC Process. Follow an Example of how practical and expandable the MOC Process can be.    

  • Hyperdispersion – The Catalyst for a rapid ROI

    This document is aimed at focusing attention on the most important aspects high efficiency mixing, and its’ impact on reduced Capital Cost and profitability.  Process efficiency and reduced operating costs do not have to be associated with larger batches and increased capital equipment expenditures.  We can configure a system that provides a smaller footprint, lower cost of entry, and the throughput that typically requires a much larger mixer.   What you will learn: How to reduce your change over times between production runs Top reasons on choose a mixer with a Quick Clean System How to Reduce Project Capital Cost Why flexibility is important

  • Agglomeration: Enlarging and controlling particle size

    In the solids processing industry, agglomeration—or particle enlargement and control—is a critical step in improving the safety, flowability and performance of many different bulk materials. While the mechanical process of increasing particle size can be relatively straight-forward, each material is unique in the way it responds. This, in turn, affects the way a bulk product performs in its ultimate role. Getting the agglomeration process right often requires consultation with a trusted equipment supplier who can help refine the process for consistent results.

  • Media Options for Dust Collector Filter Cartridges

    Dust collector filter cartridges are designed to capture the maximum amount of dust and keep it  contained in order to keep your facility cleaner and your employees safe. But filter cartridges are not one-size-fits-all. The type of dust you are collecting might require filters with static-releasing characteristics, conductivity, non-stick coatings, etc. This  ePoster helps identify the best filter media choice for your application based on the type of dust operation produces or processes.  

  • The Bottom-Line Impact of Risk and Dust Collection

      No matter the industry, dust collection is critical. These systems allow businesses to comply with stringent standards and protect the safety of employees, their assets and often their neighborhoods. But when deciding which dust collector to purchase, too often the decision is weighted almost entirely on price. By taking a holistic approach to selecting the right collector for an application, companies can mitigate risk, reduce their operating costs and realize a number of bottom-line benefits.  

  • Using 3D Level Sensors to Solve the Toughest Food Storage Challenges

    For almost a decade, 3DLevelScanners have been providing highly accurate level and volume measurement in challenging materials contained in bins, tanks, and silos. The only sensor to measure and map the material surface, 3D scanners keep pushing the boundaries - and addressing the concerns of increasingly complex food operations. This article shares the newest innovations in 3D level measurement, addressing some of the toughest food storage scenarios.

  • Get the Point

    Description: Only change to description is removing arbitrary line breaks. Point level indicators are an affordable, accurate tool to measure and alert to inventory high and low levels. Easy to set up and configurable to fit a wide range of application needs, point level indicators are a must-have for a safe, efficient operation. This whitepaper details what users can expect from a point level device and explores point level options in the marketplace and considerations when choosing a sensor.  

  • Using Software to Simplify Solids Inventory Management in Silos

    Inventory management is a complex and tedious job. Storing inventory you cannot see – in bins and silos – is particularly risky if manual measurements and estimations are used for calculating inventory value. Advancements in level sensors that measure solids and powders and software that processes and presents the measurement mitigate the risk, providing automated, accurate, and accessible inventory management systems to fit almost any application. Check out this whitepaper to get a deeper look at the benefits of pairing sensors with software to manage solids inventory.  

  • How to Select a Continuous Level Sensor

    Using a continuous level sensor to monitor the material level in your storage vessels can help your operation maintain efficiency—preventing costly process interruptions and keeping you up-to-date on inventory level. This whitepaper is intended to help operations choose a continuous level sensor without having to wade through volumes of technical data. It briefly describes the sensor types available, addresses pros and cons of each type, and explains what information is needed to work effectively with a sensor supplier.

  • Mixing Materials for Friction Linings - How to Avoid De-Mixing, Increase Product Quality, and Significantly Reduce Processing Times

    It is imperative that friction linings perform well, and mixtures that are pressed to form friction linings must meet very high homogeneity requirements. However, conventional mixers can pose problems and affect productivity due to long material processing times, de-mixing, and poor product quality. There is an alternative mixing technology, one that offers solutions to the above. Discover how and the various benefits in this white paper.
