Shaftless screw conveyors for bulk solids transport
Sinfimasa specializes in bulk solids conveying. Below you find technical advantages and application examples of shaftless screw conveyors In the transport of bulk materials, the design and configuration of the mechanical conveyor is crucial for the efficiency and economy of the process. One of the most interesting pieces of equipment in this area is the shaftless screw conveyors, also known as Archimedes’ screws without a shaft. Although commonly used in sludge transport, their application goes beyond this. In this article, we will explore when and why a shaftless screw conveyor should be used to transport bulk solids. What is a Shaftless Screw Conveyor? A shaftless screw conveyor is a type of conveyor that, unlike traditional screw conveyors, does not have a central shaft. It consists of a helix that rotates within a tube or trough, moving material along the conveyor. Technical Advantages * Lower Risk of Clogging; With no central shaft, there is less risk of material getting stuck or accumulating around the shaft, which is especially useful for sticky or wet materials. * Better Handling of

Storage and loading of protein-containing meals
Jansen&Heuning designed a logistic system for the processing of blood meal, meat meal and feather meal. Contamination was an important issue. For abattoir waste processor Noblesse, our engineers studied the processing of blood meal, meat meal and feather meal. In this process, contamination, among other things, had to be taken into account. How did they do this? At Noblesse proteins the existing production site had to be improved in terms of storage and loading. The available height is 11,000 mm at the ridge and 9,500 mm at the wall, the width of tents is 45,000 mm. The main challenge for our engineers was that it had to be possible to mix from all of the silos. In addition, we had to ensure two completely separate lines to prevent contamination. Finally, all silos had to be placed on load cells for the correct dosage.

Testing the adhesive strength of cathode & anode coatings Application of the LUMiFrac® for testing the adhesive strength of cathode & anode coatings in lithium-ion batteries
Testing the adhesive strength of cathode & anode coatings
Application of the LUMiFrac® for testing the adhesive strength of cathode & anode coatings in lithium-ion batteries In a lithium-ion battery, the smallest unit of each cell consists of two electrodes (anode and cathode), and the separator. The ion-conducting electrolyte is located in between. Typically, the main component of the anode is graphite, which is excellent for storing lithium ions during charging. However, graphite’s limited electrical conductivity can cause inefficiencies in charge and discharge cycles. To boost the anode’s performance, the coating system is applied to a thin copper foil. The copper foil enhances electrical conductivity which facilitates the electron flow between the anode and the rest of the battery, including the cathode. As a result, the battery’s internal resistance decreases, leading to more efficient charging and discharging processes. This translates to higher power output and better overall performance. The coating system prevents corrosion of the copper foil, ensures stability, and maintains electrolyte compatibility. The active material

No wear in the suction channel Sinter dust
Optimum extraction of sinter dust in the suction duct; abrasion protection and lowest possible volumes of false air. In pig iron production, steel mills and foundries, emissions are generated at many points, including sinter dust, which must be reliably collected and filtered. In addition to intensive filtration, the focus is on efficiency: the emissions must be extracted optimally with the lowest possible volumes of false air. Sinter dust, for example, causes abrasion and damages the suction duct in sinter plants. Kalenborn has lined the duct with the aluminum oxide ceramic KALOCER, which protects against extreme abrasion. The lining ensures a uniform volume flow in the duct and provides a longer service life for the plant component.

Dissolving agglomerates efficiently
When processing bulk solids, agglomerates can occur that impair the production process. How can they be separated or dissolved as efficiently as possible? Among other alternatives, agglomerates can either be separated with sieving technology or dissolved with the help of passing sieves. This depends mainly on how solid the agglomerates are or how difficult it is to separate the adhering product particles from each other. Passing screens are used when the product to be processed tends to compact. This interferes with further processing in downstream production stages and has a quality-reducing effect. These screening machine, such as the JEL PS passing screen, use a rotor with passing bars to pick up the lumpy product and pass it through the screen mesh. The product falls out below the screen in the desired degree of fragmentation and can be conveyed to the following processing stage. Features of the JEL PS passing sieve machine: Individual fine adjustment In order to be even more flexible when screening and crushing agglomerated bulk solids, the rotating passing bars are adjustable.

Screening machines for separating glass fiber-reinforced polyamide
Learn how RHEWUM’s screening technology optimizes the separation of glass fiber reinforced polyamide beads to increase quality and efficiency in material processing. Introduction The industry is continuously faced with the challenge of processing materials not only efficiently and economically, but also meeting the quality requirements of end products. A special focus is on the processing and separation of plastics, especially glass fiber-reinforced polyamide spheres (PA GF). These specialty plastics, enriched with glass fiber, offer improved mechanical properties and are therefore in high demand in many technical applications. Efficient sieving of these materials is crucial for the purity of the end product and thus for the quality. In this context, RHEWUM sieving machines play a central role. Technological progress in sieving technology RHEWUM’s sieving technology is based on long experience and continuous development to meet the specific requirements of different materials. Particularly in the separation of glass fiber-reinforced polyamide spheres, it is essential to achieve precise separation to secure the desired material

New multiple differential pressure transducer saves costs
Up to three measuring channels with freely selectable measuring ranges in a single housing: this is what the new multiple differential pressure transducer from HESCH offers. All settings on the HE 5413 are conveniently made using the ”EasyTool Controls 4.0” software from AXXERON HESCH electronics. Typical areas of application for the multiple differential pressure transducer are filter and dust extraction technology, ventilation and building technology, valve and flap controls, clean room and laboratory technology as well as extraction systems and supply air monitoring systems of all kinds. In these applications, the pressure upstream and downstream of filter elements or the extraction pressure against the environment is recorded. In this way, a statement can be made about the degree of contamination of the filter or the performance of the extraction fan can be controlled. The multiple measuring transducer is also ideal for monitoring filter systems with three filter stages, such as fabric filters, police filters and carbon filters. The device can be designed for supply networks with 19...30 V DC or for networks with 100...240 V AC. The

Gluing instead of welding The use of adhesive brackets when retrofitting vibrators and knockers on bulk goods containers reduces downtimes and protects containers.
Gluing instead of welding
The use of adhesive brackets when retrofitting vibrators and knockers on bulk goods containers reduces downtimes and protects containers. Vibrators and impactors are mounted on U-profiles, mounting brackets or metal plates (weld-on plates) for loosening, separating, compacting and sieving powders, granulates or pellets. In this way, containers and pipes are emptied and their walls cleaned, product blockages are dissolved and bulk material bridges are destroyed or, at best, avoided from the outset. To guarantee these effects, suitable fastening elements must already be taken into account during system planning and subsequent construction. However, problems always arise in the not infrequent cases where a need for vibration technology subsequently arises (new bulk materials, changed recipes, etc.) and no suitable fastening options have been provided on high-quality systems (e.g. made of stainless steel). Welding, on the other hand, is not an optimal solution in retrospect, because on the one hand the surface quality can deteriorate, especially with thin-walled containers, hoppers or pipes, and there is
