Efficient fine classifying: design of PMT Jet-classifier
Classifying of finest powders at high recovery rate. Optimum dispersion because of positive pressure condition. PMT-Jetmill has developed the Jet-Classifier JS operating in positive pressure condition. Based on this special operation these classifiers have the finest range of products in high content recovery. This can also be achieved on an industrial scale. All types of powders Classifying means separation in a coarse and a fine fraction. Basically all types of powdery raw materials can be processed. Caused by strong agglomerates due to high surface forces, common classifying systems achieve only low classifying efficiency. The PMT Jet-classifier JS operates under positive pressure in order to optimize dispersion of the feed material based on high shear forces. The first positive pressure classifier for the submicron range leads to high content recovery even in the finest cut-point range. The use of the Rotor-Motor-Unit enables final product cut-points in the low micrometer and even submicron range. Benefits: * operation in positive pressure condition * improved

Perfect machine mounting by means of spring-cushion systems. Vibrations induced by applications are disturbing, annoying and from a certain point on lead to disruptions in production - this should be avoided
Perfect machine mounting by means of spring-cushion systems.
Vibrations induced by applications are disturbing, annoying and from a certain point on lead to disruptions in production - this should be avoided Wherever something moves, vibrations occur. These are generally disturbing for the environment and in the worst case can lead to machine failures and thus to restrictions in production. Active machine mounts from RG+ Schwingungstechnik GmbH offer the possibility of isolating vibrations and thus preventing expensive production downtimes and disruptions to the environment. In addition to our dampers made of a stainless steel wire mesh, the product portfolio of RG+ Schwingungstechnik GmbH also includes spring isolators consisting of a combination of springs and damping pads. This solution offers the customer, in addition to the pure vibration isolation by springs, a damping integrated into the bearing. Unintentional rocking of the machines in the resonance range can be effectively reduced. However, this damping is not the only advantage of the FR series. When additional dynamic loads are considered, the cushion has a positive effect on the action of the spring isolators,

PVC dust monitoring for early warning of hazardous dust concentrations
With AirSafe 2 sensors ENVEA has realised continuous dust monitoring to give early warning of potentially hazardous dust concentrations in packaging areas. At a PVC powder manufacturing site, robots are used in the packaging plant to fill 25 kg bags. The company’s ATEX guidelines state that there is an ATEX Zone 22 in the area of 5 metres around the plant. The ignitable mixture of PVC powder is 50 g/m3, which can happen if a bag does not withstand the pressure and breaks when being filled by a robot. However, by the time the system recognises this and internally switches off the filling, several kilos of material have often escaped into the ambient air, resulting in a potentially explosive atmosphere [> 50 g/m3]. Process data * Customer: Manufacturer of PVC powder * Material: PVC powder * Installation: In the packaging plant * Function: Dust monitoring to give early warning of potentially hazardous dust concentrations Solution In the application described, two AirSafe 2 sensors were used for continuous monitoring of the ambient air. In this case, a unit suitable for use in ATEX Zone 22 was used. The two

Sustainability in the cement industry thanks to AirScrape Once the dust settles: Cement plants develop sustainable concepts with Scrapetec innovations for conveyor transfer points.
Sustainability in the cement industry thanks to AirScrape
Once the dust settles: Cement plants develop sustainable concepts with Scrapetec innovations for conveyor transfer points. Downtime, cleaning costs, maintenance, wear and tear of materials or health risks for employees - the cost factors relating to the transfer points of conveyor systems are not unknown, but usually go unnoticed. Whether in mining, in the production of gypsum or cement. As a result of the cooperation with ScrapeTec, cement plants in Germany have now increasingly discovered the special sustainable effect of the new conveyor skirting for chutes. Manufacturer ScrapeTec does a kind of persuasion with this innovation. In the first step, usually 1-2 transfer points on the customer’s system are equipped with the new non-contact sidesealing. Then comes the work on the fly. The AirScrape conveyor skirting is convincing at first glance, because of the clean working method without dust, spill and maintenance compared to conventionally equipped transfer points. And after 3 months at the latest, the investment has already paid for itself because of the eliminated cleaning and maintenance

Elevator handling recycled asphalt planings
Elevator design for recycled asphalt planings (RAP). Recommending speed, power, shaft & casing sizes, and component specs (SPS steel buckets & NBR belting) Challenge Asphalt is made from a mixture of aggregates, binder and filler, and is commonly used in constructing and maintaining roads surfaces. When the surface layer of tarmacked areas is removed, the resulting waste material known as planings, can be recycled and reused. BG Europa Ltd approached 4B Braime requesting technical advice on the manufacture of a new bucket & belt elevator to be installed at an Asphalt plant in South Wales. Although familiar with bucket & chain elevators, the customer had no technical experience with buckets & belts so requested the expertise of 4B Engineers. The bucket elevator would elevate RAP (Recycled Asphalt Planings), and use a belt instead of chain, and standard 4B pressed buckets instead of fabricated buckets commonly used in the construction industry. 4B Braime were asked to provide a design proposal detailing suitable speed, power requirements, shaft & casing sizes, and component specifications to achieve the desired

Outsourcing the production – Trust in competent partners How the Glatt Group implements contract manufacturing with expertise and innovative solutions
Outsourcing the production – Trust in competent partners
How the Glatt Group implements contract manufacturing with expertise and innovative solutions There are many reasons for outsourcing production - minimizing one’s own risks or a lack of expertise in alternative technologies are just two of them. But what to look for when looking for a contract manufacturing partner? Experience and special expertise in various industries form the basis, while a spirit of innovation and a wealth of ideas are factors for sustainable success. This is precisely the combination that customers find at Glatt Group. Contract manufacturing must meet very different requirements. There are companies that permanently outsource their production and permanently call off large quantities. Others need flexible production slots to compensate for highly fluctuating volume requirements. And often a mature product idea exists, but the innovators do not have the appropriate technology. A wide variety of tasks are the order of the day for manufacturing and refining solid product formulations, from nano disperse powders for high-tech applications

High precision, high throughput at screening of sugar Sugar is among the most demanding screening materials. The RHEsono vibration screening machine by RHEWUM precisely separates sugar at high throughputs
High precision, high throughput at screening of sugar
Sugar is among the most demanding screening materials. The RHEsono vibration screening machine by RHEWUM precisely separates sugar at high throughputs Sugar is among the most demanding screening materials. It draws moisture, tends to agglomerate and has abrasive properties. To achieve maximum precision in separation under these conditions, vibration screening machines with direct excitation of the screening mesh are a good choice. The RHEsono vibration screening machine utilizes magnetic vibrating heads to transfer motion impulses directly to the screening mesh. The impulse can be precisely adjusted to the properties of sugar. The screening mesh begins to vibrate, the sugar is deimpacted at a high frequency, agglomeration is reduced. To counter any clogging that might nevertheless occur, the RHEsono has an additional cleaning pulse which clears the screening mesh at regular intervals. This neither interrupts the screening process, nor does the pulse negatively affect separation precision. This technology allows the RHEsono to achieve highest precision in separation at high throughputs, in this case more than

Tracking System new and different PrimeTracker
Scrapetec presents successful a new tracking system against belt misalignment. New to Scrapetec’s range of conveyor components is the PrimeTracker belt tracker, which eliminates problems associated with conveyor belt systems, including misalignment, abrasion, and belt damage. “For optimum performance of a conveyor system, it is critical that the belt always runs straight on the conveyor, without sideways movement. Our new PrimeTracker belt tracker has been designed to automatically guide a conveyor belt back into the correct straight-line position, to prevent costly downtime and component replacement,” explained Thorsten Koth, sales and distribution for Scrapetec. “An advantage of the Scrapetec PrimeTracker is that it is operates in the idling position at all times, unless there is sideways movement of the belt. This system corrects misalignment immediately by guiding the belt back into the correct position, with no damage or abrasion to the belt or tracker. Perfect for reversible operation. “This is unlike conventional belt trackers

VdS-certified fire protection concept for belt dryers
For the first time, T&B is preparing a certified protection concept in cooperation with VdS The drying of materials is often the prerequisite for their further processing. The drying process, i.e. the thermal removal of water and other liquids, makes the dried goods durable, mixable, grindable or otherwise usable for further process steps. Drying processes have been industrial standard for many decades already. The first belt dryer in Europe, for example, went into operation as long ago as 1907. These days, belt dryers are used in a wide range of different branches. Examples include belt dryers for timber, pharmaceuticals, food, plastics, wastewater sludge and many other organic substances. All these substances have one thing in common: they are combustible and, in combination with a belt dryer, result in a high fire load. The importance of belt dryers in industrial applications has increased significantly over the past few years. Generally, standard series belt dryers have a modular design. They are made up of a product feeding module, a drying module

New pressure-resistant GKM screening machine KTS-VP2 600
New pressure-resistant GKM screening machine KTS-VP2 600 for control screening in pneumatic conveying streams The majority of raw materials from various industries exist in the form of powder or granules, these are generally stored in transport or storage silos. As it is possible for the raw materials to contain impurities, agglomerates, or tramp material the unfortunate consequences of this are them finding their way into the process flow which in turn results in a loss of production due to machine & system emptying and clean down. The implication of this being – product rejection/recalls at the point when the impurities reach the end product. The use of check sifters/sieves is an effective way to police the powders & ultimately prevent these issues from occurring. As the typical transfer of such raw materials between silos or the loading and unloading of trucks is carried out by pneumatic conveying this can create an overpressure in the conveying system, this is why a gravity screening machine cannot be used for this purpose.

Capacitive RFnivo® probe with full coating protection Point level dtection with RFnivo® coated with Protection Plus with innovative corrosion
Capacitive RFnivo® probe with full coating protection
Point level dtection with RFnivo® coated with Protection Plus with innovative corrosion In power plants, the demands made on the fill level sensors can be very high due to the fact that the sensors come into contact with aggressive media such as sulphur oxides, heavy metals or even acids. Where limit switches are used for dust detection in flue gas cleaning, they need to be robust enough in order to deliver reliable and consistent performance. Often maintenance costs or replacement of these sensors can be very high due to their quality not being adequate to meet the demands and so they achieve only a short operating life. This is particularly evident in measurement tasks in flue gas cleaning within waste incineration plants. Longer service life due to increased corrosion resistance UWT has further developed the RFnivo® 3100 capacitive level limit switch for this type of measurement task in the dust extraction of flue gases so that it meets and withstands the demanding conditions. All process-contacting parts of the sensor have been designed to be completely

AirScrape conveyor belt skirting, the first installation Case-Study.
Worldwide practical application experience and here the first installation of the first contact free conveyor belt skirting. Since installation nor friction, no wear, no maintenance, no dust, no spillage. Already in 2012, in response to a specific operator requirement, Wilfried Dünnwald, inventor of this technology, developed the prototype of the AirScrape. The conveyor belt skirting system worked perfectly from the first minute, is still reliably in use today and was ultimately a major factor in the founding of ScrapeTec Trading GmbH. The AirScrape systems installed on plants in various industries now protect about 1,000 belt transfers worldwide. Parallel to the interest in these units, the number of contractual partnerships is also growing. Trained specialists are on the road everywhere to ensure installation and service. Here is one selected example: Germany: The solution was perfectly convincing for the operators of a dolomite processing plant, who regularly had to deal with dust and material losses at the transfer from the rotor crusher to the belt. Material spills in the ton range and enormous dust generation were an annoying standard. In addition, there were

AirScrape solves the problem of harmful dust
The problem of harmful dust at the conveyor transfer points could be solved convincingly by using the AirScrape. More than 60 conveyor transfer points in that plant were equipped with the AirScrape Spain: A well-known manufacturer of demanding surfaces made of stony material has also chosen the AirScrape in search of a sustainable solution to minimize emissions at belt transfers. First, a transfer point in one of the plants was equipped for test purposes. The measurements during the first test run and in the later process showed a minimization of dust generation of more than 80 % compared to before. The overall advantages in terms of efficiency, occupational safety and protection were so convincing that more than 60 transfer points in the company’s plants were equipped with AirScrape conveyor skirt sealing system. In correlation to the dust reduction, the health-related downtimes of the workforce, previously exposed to massive dust development, were also reduced.

New generation of belt alignment, the PrimeTracker
The conveyor belt is one of the most expensive components of belt conveyors. Poor belt alignment leads to excessive wear and inevitably to early replacement, resulting in high replacement costs and short service lives. Minimum wear – long service life The new PrimeTracker works unlike conventional belt alignment systems. Due to its unique design, it acts like a standard conveyor belt roller when the belt runs smoothly and only intervenes when the belt leaves its optimum position. The PrimeTracker responds before the guide roller tilts horizontally. As soon as the conveyor belt runs off-centre, the PrimeTracker corrects the movement with small forces and very low friction, thus preventing unnecessary wear. Effect of the PrimeTracker in case of belt misalignement The specially developed maintenance-free mounting of the PrimeTracker allows a change of the rotating roller‘s axis position in all directions. The rubberized cylinder body can tilt and swing. With soft pressure, it provides continuous guidance over the complete contact surface. The PrimeTracker is physically designed to detect even the slightest deviation in the belt run from the optimum line and to react with the

Wye Line Diverters Handling Plastic Pellets for Automotive
Wye Line Diverters Handling Plastic Pellets for Automotive
An automotive industry plastics manufacturer contacted Vortex Global because they needed to replace a cumbersome hose manifold system with an automated process. The system was used to convey different grades and colors of plastic pellets from individual storage bins into an extruder, where the pellets were heated and molded into automotive parts. For this plastics manufacturer, the process of conveying plastic pellets was a production and safety ordeal. The hoses took space on the production floor, employees had to be aware of the constant relocation of the hoses, and production slowed as hoses were relocated to different source bins. On occasion, hoses were connected to the wrong source bin, causing the extruded parts to be made with the improper materials – therefore creating waste. The company had installed Vortex Wye Line Diverters in other parts of their facility earlier with great success. They were pleased with the valves’ performance and the lifecycle

Peru first AirScrape test
The new conveyor belt skirting, the AirScrape runs on high performance 12 months now. The mine confirmed and appreciate, the high cost savings and the clean dust free working places at the conveyor belts. A new user, operator of the processing plant of a large mine, had to readjust the conventional conveyor skirting at belt transfer points every 2 weeks and replace them completely every 4 months, causing enormous downtimes and costs of the equivalent of € 240 000 each. The plant managers hoped to stretch these cycles. They discovered the AirScrape at the Perumin 2019 trade fair and decided to test the conveyor skirting at one of the most critical transfers at the highest point of the plant. From there, dust not only trickled into the entire plant, but was also carried by the wind in the direction of the lower situated nearby village. After the test installation of the AirScrape of 10 m per side of the conveyor, the effectiveness was immediately apparent. Only 2 weeks later, the main manager approved a large AirScrape order. In the meantime, elements for 150 m (both sides) have been purchased to convert a total of 5 belt transfers to AirScrape. Furthermore, there are

Elevator Re-Design from Grain to
Elevator Re-Design from Grain to "Green Malt"
Brewing & Malting: Elevator Design Improvements Challenge To utilise an existing Grain Elevator to transport “green malt”. After installation it was apparent the elevator was problematic and not functioning as expected. The installed buckets were CCS127 buckets, which replaced the obsolete J127 HDP buckets which were originally installed. After some discussion with 4B, the prognosis was the pulley may be too small for the projection of the CCS12x7 bucket. This was expected to be cured by installing CCS 12x6 but the problem still persisted although not as bad. SOLUTION After a site visit to inspect what they actually had, it was apparent the elevator was set up to transport free flowing grain. This setup was incorrect for the handling of green malt, which by nature is wet and sticky and does not flow well. The conclusion was the product was not fully discharging into the outlet but was in fact falling down the return leg back into the boot. 4B recommended two minor alterations to solve this problem.

Vortex Roller Gate Provides Solution For UK Animal Bedding Production Facility
Vortex Roller Gate Provides Solution
For UK Animal Bedding Production Facility Arden Wood Shavings located in Solihull, England, is one of the leading suppliers of wood shavings and sawdust bedding to the poultry, equestrian, dairy and animal bedding sectors. Application: The Client’s particular process was using the valves to isolate conveyors in their fully automated production facility. Challenges: The Client had experienced problems with the existing valve located on the outlet of their inclined conveyor. The existing valve leaked material and was difficult to maintain. The new Roller Gate valve had to be specifically designed to match the opening, bolt hole pattern and overall height of the existing valve to minimize plant downtime during installation. It included an oversized pneumatic cylinder to assist in closing through material flow. As the valve was installed at an angle and would see more material flow on one side, the blade guide rollers were upgraded to be a more durable stainless-steel construction.

MOLOScode patent for 30 years
Patent for the development of intelligent hose couplings Whether a hose is connected to the coupling station or not, is an important information for the PLC. But it would be even better to know, which hose is connected where. In order to get this information, it is necessary to equip the hose couplings with “intelligence”. For this Wolfgang Hageleit, founder and managing director of MOLLET-Füllstandtechnik GmbH had an idea and developed a solution, that was patented already 30 years ago on August 9, 1990. He pushed forward although this innovation and developed it with his team to the marketability. He solved existing problems of the customers and built up a new product line, that contributes an essential part to the success of MOLLET. This is the intelligent coupling-system MOLOScode that makes an incorrect connection of flexible and rigid pipelines impossible. Each hose gets a transponder and any pipe connection is equipped with a reading device that informs the PLC about the hose that has been connected directly

Application-specific Ploughshare® mixer for battery masses
Sophisticated in every detail In the production of lithium batteries extremely high quality demands are placed on the preparation of the required raw materials – even to the limits of technical feasibility. For example, the contamination of cathode masses by foreign ions – in particular iron – must be avoided at all costs. Lödige has addressed this challenging process-technical task with a special version of the proven Ploughshare® mixer. The mixing drum has a ceramic lining, but due to their more complex geometry a different covering was required for the mixing elements. Together with the mixer shaft and choppers, they were provided with a thin, but extremely tough ceramic coating. The coatings can be adjusted to the respective application. Standard coating materials are based on aluminium oxide or tungsten carbide. In any event, these wear-resistant, hard coatings are designed for long-term operation. Because the battery masses contain toxic and carcinogenic components such as cobalt,

Shaken or stirred?
The optimization of mixing processes with the simulation software Rocky dem Traditionally, the quality assessment of mixing processes in many companies is still based on time-consuming test series, which, especially in batch processes, provide insufficient data on the time course and the overall spatial distribution of the mixing quality. Liebherr Mischtechnik reports in our Cadfem journal article (see link on the right) how the use of particle simulation with ROCKY-DEM helps to optimise process parameters - to improve energy efficiency and compound quality as well as to save costs. With ROCKY-DEM, input parameters such as particle sizes and size ratios as well as the speed and residence time of the product could be varied quickly. An evaluation of the mixing quality was now possible over the entire mixing trough and at any time. Statements about required torques and optimum speeds can also be made in this way. In addition, statements on new developments or design changes can be made by means of simulation without the need for cost-intensive

MOLOS-vibro for all bulk solids Single rod level indicator for potentially explosive atmospheres in ex zones 0 and 1
MOLOS-vibro for all bulk solids
Single rod level indicator for potentially explosive atmospheres in ex zones 0 and 1 The vibration rod level indicators of the MOLOSvibro series VF1 and VF6 monitor the filling level of bulk solids even under extreme process conditions. These devices get now the approval for areas with the ATEX classification zone 0/1. This is the most dangerous potentially explosive atmosphere as a mixture of air and flammable gases. The maintenance free level indicators of the MOLOSvibro series are suitable for level control applications with dusty, powdery, or fine granulated bulk material although with low densities. These measuring devices are the preferred choice to indicate full and empty level and guarantee high reliability as well as a long durability even in hard and extreme applications. Due to the Rhombus shape of the vibration rod and a reinforced membrane the MOLOSvibro measuring devices are much more robust than conventional single rod level switches.

Protection Plus with innovative corrosion protection Capacitive RF probe with full coating protection
Protection Plus with innovative corrosion protection
Capacitive RF probe with full coating protection In power plants, the demands made on the fill level sensors can be very high due to the fact that the sensors come into contact with aggressive media such as sulphur oxides, heavy metals or even acids. Where limit switches are used for dust detection in flue gas cleaning, they need to be robust enough in order to deliver reliable and consistent performance. Often maintenance costs or replacement of these sensors can be very high due to their quality not being adequate to meet the demands and so they achieve only a short operating life. This is particularly evident in measurement tasks in flue gas cleaning within waste incineration plants. Longer service life due to increased corrosion resistance UWT has further developed the RFnivo® 3100 capacitive level limit switch for this type of measurement task in the dust extraction of flue gases so that it meets and withstands the demanding conditions. All process-contacting parts of the sensor have been designed to be
