Flowmeter (solids) for high temperature applications Bulkslide HT
Flowmeter (solids) for high temperature applications
Bulkslide HT Rice Lake Weighing Systems Europe B.V., from Heteren, The Netherlands, is introducing the Bulkslide HT, a flowmeter for solids within a temperature of maximal 160 °C. The product will slide in vertical direction over a vertical plate with a curve on the end. In the curve, we measure the center point flying force which will be calculated into a flow (t/h) and a total (kg or ton). The advantages are, nearly no maintenance; nearly no power consumption; a very stable zero point; the system is very compact, has low space requirements, it can be pre-calibrated with a certain accuracy, the speed of the product inside the Bulkslide is very low so the abrasion is also low compared to other systems, the accuracy is nearly independent from density and other product characteristics. Some components, like loadcells and rubber flanges, are getting a special execution, in a way that the Bulkslide is resistance for products within temperatures until 160 °C. The housing is stainless

PUC collpoid mills used in the peanut butter Fine grinding and homogeneous mixing of nuts, seeds or beans is no problem
PUC collpoid mills used in the peanut butter
Fine grinding and homogeneous mixing of nuts, seeds or beans is no problem The Probst und Class colloid mill is often used for grinding peanuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, soybeans. The production process is very simple: The seeds are introduced through a funnel into the vertical colloid mill, which grinds the nuts or seeds into a homogeneous pasty product. In the production of Peanut Butter, the nuts go dry in the grinder and the fine butter comes out at the bottom. With nuts that contain less oil extra oil is sometimes added. The PUC Colloid mill simply distributes the oil homogeneously in the butter. Even when extra ingredients have to be added to the product, this is no problem. In the food industry, PUC mills are also used for the production of sauces, toppings and pastes. They can also be used for the production of animal feed. In the chemical sector, the production of grease and pigments are good examples of the applications of these robust mills. PUC: Probst und Class is a German company founded in 1926 and they have been developing

Engelsmann develops a new containment system Easy big bag emptying up to OEB 4
Engelsmann develops a new containment system
Easy big bag emptying up to OEB 4 Engelsmann has developed a new attachment system which can be used to empty big bags easily and safely under containment conditions. With the newly developed attachment system, foil-lined big bags can be emptied under containment conditions. As the emptying process is mostly automated, the operator only needs to perform a few steps themselves. During the emptying only very small, barely measurable quantities of product particles escape into the area around the machine. This protects production personnel from highly active and harmful substances and prevents cross-contamination with other products. The attachment system can be used up to a containment level of OEB 4, which equates to a particle concentration in the environment surrounding the machine of less than 10 µg / m3. “The development of the new containment system was a logical reaction on our part to the increased market demand for production equipment that helps facility operators to meet the high requirements

Vortex roller gate provides solution for uk flour miller
Vortex roller gate provides solution for uk flour miller
A flour miller in the United Kingdom had experienced problems with its existing valves located on the outlet of their bulk storage silos. The valves, used to isolate the silos from an ongoing conveyor, leaked material and failed to fully open and close. They required constant maintenance and replacement parts with subsequent lost production. The new valves had to be specifically designed to match the opening, bolt hole pattern, and overall height of the existing valves to minimize plant downtime during installation. Vortex was able to achieve all of the required parameters. The Vortex Roller Gate was identified as the ideal solution for this application. The Roller Gate is designed for handling powders, pellets and granules in gravity flow and low-pressure applications.

CenTrax belt tracker puts conveyor belts with garland roller pairs back on track
CenTrax belt tracker puts conveyor belts with garland roller
pairs back on track A cement factory in the United Kingdom was experiencing a lot of problems due to a 1200 mm wide conveyor belt, fitted with 5-part garland roller pairs, mistracking. The installation was fitted with tracking systems that were not performing correctly. CentTrax engineers were able to design a custom-made solution. The design, with a CenTrax S-1200 belt tracker as the framework, is based on the existing CenTrax load carrying and return strand tracking systems. For many years, these systems have proven to be effective under the most arduous conditions. Unlike the standard CenTrax three-roller tracking systems, the S-1200-5V-P has five rollers (two tapered and three flat rollers). These five rollers have the same trough shape as the garland roller pairs. Swivel bearing Contrary to the mounted tracking systems, CenTrax has only one pivot point, also known as a swivel bearing. The swivel bearing is fully sealed and unaffected by moisture, dust and dirt. The robust bearings
