PENKO launches the multi-channel Omega weighing concept Smart Industry becomes reality
PENKO launches the multi-channel Omega weighing concept
Smart Industry becomes reality Predicting the future in most occasions is as clear as mud. Yet sometimes there is something to discover. Because, what is Smart Industry about? Mutual connectivity, or multiple measuring/control instruments functioning, thanks to their interconnection, as one complete controller. The PENKO Omega concept offers a “glimpse” into this future. Despite numerous innovations in the concept, the basis remains familiar, weighing instrumentation with an accuracy of 10 000 d (0.001%), a measuring speed of 1 600 / s and an internal resolution of not less than 24 bits. All properties enabling the monitoring of rapidly changing weights, contribute to the filtering of unwanted side effects, so that even dynamic applications can be optimally controlled. The Omega has its own programmable logic controller (PLC) per rack with up to 16 weighers. Furthermore, up to eight racks can also be connected per control unit, which makes up to 128 weighing/measuring systems available as one controller.

Custom Made Rotary Valves
Custom Made Rotary Valves
Rotary valves are used as solution for various application areas and industries such as food, cement, iron, steel, agriculture, chemicals and plastics to ensure continous control or regulated function. They are preferred in many processes like food and chemical processing, pharmaceutical and plastics manufacturing, dosage control, mixing, batching and many others like silo discharging, pneumatic conveying line feeding and discharging. Almost any material in powder or granular form of bulk solid can be used with rotary valves. However, each process is unique and should be handled well. Rotary valves are not only used for ensuring minimum loss of air pressure at the beginning or end of pneumatic conveying lines, but also used for providing volumetric and gravimetric feeding for continuous mixing and streaming solutions. Each successful application is a result of good observation of the handled material and experience on difficulties and challenges of that specific process.

Dosage for small quantities of product Mobile filling station increases flexibility
Dosage for small quantities of product
Mobile filling station increases flexibility For many producers whose goods are destined for sale, there is not always a clear solution when it comes to finding the right packaging for their products. Even if big bags are the most commonly used method of transportation and storage, with their filling capacity of 1,000 to 1,500 liters, they are not always suitable for every customer. Big bags are often oversized for smaller operations or customers that want to test a smaller amount of product beforehand. In most production facilities there is not much space, and for some companies setting-up their own production line with a small package filling system attached is often not worth it. A manufacturer of plastic granulates was also faced with this challenge as they regularly got requests for smaller product quantities but they were unable to optimally serve their customers. Therefore, J. Engelsmann AG constructed a mobile filling station for small packages that can easily be installed in existing big bag filling stations. Until

SYMACH palletizing line for Zijderlaan cat litter Zijderlaan Retail Services invests in growth cat litter product line
SYMACH palletizing line for Zijderlaan cat litter
Zijderlaan Retail Services invests in growth cat litter product line To support the growth of their cat litter business, known for the Agriselect brand, Zijderlaan Retail Services invested in a new palletizing line. In Waspik they package 7-liter and 10-liter paper and PE bags of cat litter. The challenge was to palletise the bags in an upright position. In addition, a stable, visually appealing pallet that stays within the pallet dimensions is important for efficient loading and transport and for the end customer a pallet that presents well. The SYMACH palletizer, which was specially developed for stacking bags, proved in successful tests at the production site in Terneuzen that a good stacking result can also be achieved with upright bags. The machine carefully processes individual bags and positions them very precisely on split plates, while the stacked layers are enclosed by an adjustable stacking cage that prevents product overhang. This combination is the right formula for a stable, rectangular pallet. Based on the technical quality,

Flowmatic EF500: High Rate Autonomous Bulk Bag Unloading System
Flowmatic EF500: High Rate Autonomous Bulk Bag Unloading System
The fully automated Flowmatic EF500 bulk bag unloading system is one of the latest additions to the Palamatic Process material handling equipment portfolio. The super sack discharging station is fed by a set of motorized conveyors that supplies the hydraulic gripper. A pallet stacker is integrated to evacuate the empty pallets once the bulk bag is lifted by the gripper. Autonomous handling of the bulk bags is done by the hydraulic gripper system, mounted on a bridge crane, which transfers the bulk bags from the conveyor to the discharge hoppers. The bulk bag is opened via cutting by cross or "U" shaped blades depending on the bulk bag design. Once empty, the bulk bag is automatically discharged to a bulk bag compactor. The only manual intervention required for this system is the unloading of the stacked empty pallets and loading of the bulk bags to be emptied.

Feeder Performance When Handling Recycled Plastics How to Ensure Reliable Feeder Performance When Handling Recycled Plastics
Feeder Performance When Handling Recycled Plastics
How to Ensure Reliable Feeder Performance When Handling Recycled Plastics The plastics industry has recognized that it has to produce more sustainably if it is to meet the needs of end users’ changing consumption behavior and ever stricter environmental legislation worldwide. Recycling plays a key role in achieving this goal. Many plastics processing operations are facing the question of how to implement recycling on an industrial scale at the highest quality. At this point, new hopes such as biodegradable plastics cannot meet the high expectations placed upon them. The plastic products will only degrade under very specific conditions. Educating consumers on proper disposal is proceeding sluggishly, and the waste industry is struggling to properly exploit this new material stream, especially when it comes to packaging, conventional plastics such as PET, PE, or PVC will remain without competition for the foreseeable future. In order to consistently reduce effects upon the environment caused by the use of plastics, the plastics industry has

Low speed makes Poeth Z-/C-Conveyor ATEX safe Conveying speed below 0.5 m/s
Low speed makes Poeth Z-/C-Conveyor ATEX safe
Conveying speed below 0.5 m/s Many powder conveying systems are based on speeds higher than 1 m/s. In many cases, this means that additional Atex provisions must be made. This is not necessary with the Z and C-Conveyor. The conveyor runs at a speed smaller than 0.5 m/s and is certified for internal ATEX application. Explosion safety assessed with scorecard “very good” Poeth Solids Processing supplied the Z-Conveyor to Algiers as part of its complete turn-key project. In addition to the transport system, Poeth also supplied the silo building with a storage capacity of 5700 m³, the Sea Container Tilting Unit, inline weighers, cleaning systems, spark detection and the electronic control and cabling. The externally designated ATEX certification body assessed the explosion safety in Algiers with a “scorecard 4 - very good”. Poeth will soon be building similar installations for the same brewer in Nigeria and Cambodia.

Improved performance for crop protection products Fluid bed technology for herbicides, fungicides and others
Improved performance for crop protection products
Fluid bed technology for herbicides, fungicides and others Plant protection products, be they herbicides or fungicides, must be dust-free, free-flowing, stable, safe to handle and provide good redispersibility properties. In the future, it will also be important to tailor their effectiveness to deal with particular hazards or pests, and increase tolerance to extreme weather conditions. Product development usually focuses on the optimization of successful products: That means improved effectiveness and storage, safer handling and easier dosing. As well as these long-standing challenges, however, farmers and manufacturers of crop protection products are facing an increasingly fragmented market with regionally specific requirements. Due to globalisation and imbalances in the ecosystem, it is becoming increasingly necessary to control pests in a targeted manner and protect plants from previously unknown threats. Yet a growing market for organic farming means an increase in demand for biological or biodegradable crop protection

SYMACH palletizers stack ZST sugar bags in sling bags Zeeland Sugar Terminal loads 50kg sugar bags in sling bags into breakbulk vessel
SYMACH palletizers stack ZST sugar bags in sling bags
Zeeland Sugar Terminal loads 50kg sugar bags in sling bags into breakbulk vessel At the end of last year, Zeeland Sugar Terminal in Westdorpe loaded the first breakbulk / general cargo vessel with 50kg bags of sugar in sling bags. The ultramodern sugar terminal, ZST, has two SYMACH palletizing lines and can therefore efficiently load both containers and sling bags. Flexibility to meet customer demand and a high capacity to palletize mainly 50kg bags of sugar quickly and reliably into the right format were necessary for ZST. Loading slings with bags into the hold of a ship quickly and efficiently can only be done with stable straight stacks of bags. The high palletizing quality of SYMACH palletizers provides straight stacks that are sufficiently cohesive with each other for good stability. For the palletizing line SYMACH also designed and built the bag transport to feed the palletizers and the pallet transport system. The use of metal transport pallets contributes considerably to the SYMACH line flexibility. The line design limits the number of
