Fluid bed systems: continuous, batch, or a hybrid? Glatt series with plant solutions that enable both types of process control
Fluid bed systems: continuous, batch, or a hybrid?
Glatt series with plant solutions that enable both types of process control The discussion pro and contra continuous versus batch production is conducted as if there were only these two alternatives. However, with the Glatt series, plant solutions have long been available that enable both types of process control. A look at the requirements of two customers shows which issues are really decisive. The advantages of a continuous system are undisputed: A continuous production plant delivers very good, reproducible product quality with extremely high efficiency during continuous operation, since process interruptions due to batch changes and cleaning intervals are eliminated. Small quantities, frequent product and formulation changes, limited batch sizes, traceability or longer coating processes speak in favor of batch production. However, as soon as customer-side manufacturing conditions or specific product properties come into focus - usually the USP of every ingredient manufacturer - the really important arguments come into play: On the

Screw feeders: not only for dosing
Screw feeders can not only dose, but also store additional capacity, save headroom and improve flow performance. Screw feeders are widely used to control the rate of discharge from bulk storage hoppers, but they also enable extra capacity to be stored, headroom saved and flow performance improved. When designed as an integral part of the storage system they rectify segregation occurred during the filling of the hopper and provide optimum conditions to counter any tendency for the contents to ‘flush’ during discharge. However, to secure maximum operating benefits the extraction pattern per unit length of the feeder should match the cross sectional area of the hopper that it serves. As the feeder is usually shorter than the hopper dimension, the extraction rate demand at the start and end of the feeder opening can vary to many times that of the intermediate sections. A common technique employed to generate progressive extraction along the length of the outlet slot is to increase the screw pitch. Apart from the fact that the initial section of screw exposed to the hopper

Level detection to protect container overfilling The contactless level detection allows limit levels in the containers to be identified and mixing processes can be optimized.
Level detection to protect container overfilling
The contactless level detection allows limit levels in the containers to be identified and mixing processes can be optimized. In a concentrated animal feed plant, there are four scales in which various components are filled via screw conveyors. Due to the various products, there are different bulk heights in the respective containers. If the height of the material in the containers is too high, the mechanical slider, that is located in the centre of the container, is no longer able to transport the material downstream to the process lines. Thus, the objective is to prevent possible overfilling in order to optimize the mixing process. Process data: Customer: Raiffeisen Kraftfuttermittelwerk Dörpen GmbH (Germany) Material: Animal feed Installation: Secondary container behind scale Function: Level detection, overfill protection Solution: The ProGap 2.0-BS is a universal and flexible sensor consisting of a transmitter and a receiver based on the latest microwave technology. This technology is used when limit levels of bulk materials are to be detected or objects are to be positioned. In

Sample preparation of cannabis plants for efficient extraction
A video on how you can fast and easily prepare cannabis plants for an efficient extraction of cannabis oil and receive a homogeneous sample. Cannabis has been used as a medicine in various cultures for thousands of years, for example as marijuana or as hashish. Today Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD) are particularly isolated and researched from the multitude of active substances contained in the plant (in addition to other cannabinoids and terpenes) as pharmacologically effective components. The cannabis active ingredients are used therapeutically in particular * as pain reliever * for appetite stimulation * anti-inflammatory * antispasmodic Supercritical CO2 Extraction The most common method to extract the active ingredients from the cannabis plant is supercritical CO2 extraction. At above 31°C and with high pressure the CO2 gets into the "supercritical" state. It now acts as a solvent. It is passed through a chamber containing the plant material. The CO2 has still the density of a liquid, but can fill the entire chamber like a gas. This is ideal for extraction as it does

Salt dissolver and brine tanks for the city of Vienna
Through our dealer Blumer & Lehmann, Polem supplied 3 composite brine storage tanks and a salt dissolver for ice control in the city of Vienna. Dealing with slipperiness on the road is a matter of acting quickly at the right time. To be able to do this, 3 composite brine storage tanks and a salt dissolver for ice control were installed in Vienna. The smaller tank is the salt dissolver that ensures the correct concentration of brine water. The brine water is stored in the three tanks of 2400 mm diamter each and with a capacity of 45 m3 per tank. This way they can start immediately when the roads need it. The beautiful color orange is at costumers request. We think it is a good choice. This Austrian winter service works with large wooden silos for the storage of road salt. Wooden silos are mainly used when really large silos are needed (600 m3) In recent years, Polem has also supplied many silos for salt storage for winter services.

Rijk Zwaan homogenises fragile vegetable seed using Lindor technology
Machine homogenisation of sensitive, high-quality vegetable seeds on a large scale, without damaging the seeds. It seemed an ambitious project: homogenising large quantities of fragile, high-quality vegetable seeds by machine without causing any damage to the seeds. Nevertheless, in collaboration with Rijk Zwaan, a global player in vegetable breeding, Lindor successfully developed a mixer which homogenises and blends seeds and fruit crops while maintaining a consistent quality. “Cucumber seed is very fragile which, once damaged, you can’t sell. Lindor’s gentle touch technology is a perfect match for our products”, says René Hendriks, team leader of Operations Support at Rijk Zwaan. Continuous innovation is essential if, as an international player, you want to deliver top quality and participate in the development of new varieties, a company philosophy that Rijk Zwaan embraces. However, it becomes a lot more challenging when you’re dealing with a delicate product that also has to be packed precisely to the gram. “We pack spinach seeds by the million, about 12 grams

More ergonomical, better and faster stacking of bags of animal feed
With the Winner 250 stacker of Europack - Ausloos. A fully automatic stacking machine can significantly optimise packaging processes. A fully automatic stacking machine can significantly optimise packaging processes. Not only for large, but also for small productions. The Damme company, specialised in pet food, made the switch from manual to automatic stacking thanks to Ausloos Verpakkingstechniek and has experienced the benefits in terms of ergonomics, quality and speed. Ausloos presented the company with the fully automatic Europack Winner 250 stacking machine. This machine is very compact and guarantees a high stacking quality. The filled bags are supplied on a conveyor belt from another room, through an opening in the wall. The Winner 250 picks up the bags from the roller conveyor and stacks them accurately and securely on the pallets. A forklift truck can then easily move the filled pallets into the warehouse. This Europack stacker is the ideal solution for those looking for a simple and cost-effective stacking solution. The Damme company can easily further automate the packaging line

Trough chain conveyors – how to prevent wear?
A thermal power plant wished to prevent wear in their trough chain conveyor. These units are used to collect and transport away ash and slag from the combustion of e.g. coal under the boiler. A municipal thermal power plant wished to prevent progressive wear in their trough chain conveyor. These units are used to collect and transport away ash and slag from the combustion of e.g. coal under the boiler. The hard material often causes rapid abrasion of the floor and side walls. The operator of the thermal power plant was looking for a wear protection solution to avoid the costly repairs and shutdowns of the plant. Kalenborn received the order to line the trough chain conveyor with ABRESIST cast basalt plates. The product is characterised by a very hard but smooth surface that reliably protects against abrasive wear and the build-up of material being conveyed. ABRESIST is resistant to corrosion, insensitive to chemical substances and at the same time temperature resistant up to 350°C. Kalenborn lined the component in only three days. The simple and quick installation, plus the cost-effective wear-resistant material ABRESIST. An economical solution

World’s first flameless high-temperature powder synthesis plant The German Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS relies on technology from Glatt for high-purity, high-performance oxide materials
World’s first flameless high-temperature powder synthesis plant
The German Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS relies on technology from Glatt for high-purity, high-performance oxide materials At its Hermsdorf site, the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS creates high-performance oxide ceramics for medical technology and optical components. The world’s first Glatt synthesis reactor for temperatures up to 1300°C was recently put into operation there, with the powder synthesis process based, for the first time, on a flameless concept with pulsating gas flow. Ceramic high-performance materials play a fundamental role in almost all forward-looking industries: mechanical engineering, automotive engineering, electronics, energy, biotechnology and medical technology are just some of the sectors in which IKTS conducts research. For the production of application-specific oxide nanopowders, the researchers now use the powder synthesis technology of plant manufacturer Glatt to produce powders on a kilogram scale (funded by the Thüringer Aufbaubank (TAB), FKZ: 2017 FGI 0038 and co-financed with ERDF). The technology combines spray
