Seitenabdichtungssysteme von Flexco stoppen Materialüberlauf am Übergabepunkt

Um im Kohlebergbau, in Stahlwerken oder in der Holzverarbeitung Materialverluste im Übergabebereich von Förderanlagen zu vermeiden, bietet Flexco verschiedene Seitenabdichtungssysteme an. Befestigungselemente kombiniert mit einer Seitenabdichtung isolieren das Schüttgut effektiv, ohne dabei die Banddecke des Gurts zu beschädigen. Damit können Betreiber auf einfache Weise die Staubentwicklung reduzieren und gleichzeitig den Materialdurchsatz erhöhen. Flexco liefert die Seitenabdichtungsklemmen für unterschiedlich starke Beanspruchungen. Sie lassen sich sehr leicht montieren.

Flexicon: Drum Tipper mates with low-height Receiving Vessels

Whitstable, Kent, U.K. ⎯ A new TIP-TITE® Drum Tipper for 115 to 200 liter drums manufactured by Flexicon features an elongated discharge cone that mates with the gasketed inlet of low-height receiving vessels, allowing dust-free transfer of free-flowing bulk solid materials.

Housed within a three-sided safety enclosure with safety interlocked doors, the drum platform is raised by a single hydraulic cylinder, creating a dust-tight seal between the rim of a drum and the underside of the discharge cone.

SWR Engineering: Exhaust Gas Cleaning in Waste Incineration – Mass Flow Measurement with SolidFlow 2.0

A waste incineration plant produces exhaust air during the incineration process. These exhaust gases have to be cleaned. Therefore hearth furnace coke (HFC) is transported by a screw conveyor from a silo to an injector, where it is injected pneumatically into a catalyst. Between the screw conveyor and the injector the amount of the supplied HFC is measured in freefall using the  SolidFlow 2.0 mass flow measurement solution by SWR Engineering.

BinMaster: Choosing the Point Level Sensor for Your Application

Inventory management is all about inventory and controlling its related costs. Your job is to figure out just how much material you have on hand and the right time to bring in more. But your inventory is most likely stored in a large, dark, and often dusty vessel. Short of x-ray vision, you have no way to safely “see” what is actually in them.

Fortunately, there are many devices available to help you accurately measure your inventory. One category of inventory monitoring technology is called point level. Point level indicators are an affordable stand-alone tool to alert when inventory has reached a high or low level or as a level alarm when used as part of an inventory management system. Easy to set up and configurable to fit your application’s needs, point level indicators are a must have for a safe, efficient operation.

Martin Engineering: High-Efficiency Vibrators for Spreaders, Pumpers & Volumetric Mixer Trucks

Neponset, IL, USA  – A global leader in bulk handling technology has introduced a 12 VDC electric vibrator that combines superior performance with long-lasting reliability to improve material flow in specialized hauling and distribution vehicles. Cougar ® MDC12-400/700 vibrators from Martin Engineering offer powerful bulk material movement for concrete pump trucks, salt/sand/gravel/fertilizer spreader trucks and volumetric mixer trucks. Able to be retrofitted to most standard brackets, the high-efficiency design uses less current and runs at a lower temperature, while retaining the same power as comparable models. The result is longer equipment life with lower operating expense and maintenance costs by reducing material buildup, slow unloading, clogging and bridging.

Key Technology Introduces VERYX® Digital Sorters for Green Beans

November 7, 2017Key Technology introduces the VERYX® family of digital sorters for green beans. These chute- and belt-fed sorters identify and remove extraneous vegetable matter (EVM), including stalks, calyx, stems and several other types of unwanted vegetable materials often found with harvested green beans, as well as beans with blemishes and foreign material (FM) such as sticks, wood, glass and more. With optional three-way sorting, VERYX separates beans for rework while rejecting waste product and FM and passing good beans. Through improved sort accuracy, VERYX increases the removal of EVM, FM and defects to enhance product quality while virtually eliminating false rejects to maximize yield.

Doppelmayr: Second RopeCon® for the Booysendal expansion project

Booysendal Platinum (Pty) Limited (Booysendal), a subsidiary of Northam Platinum Limited (Northam), a South African based platinum and chrome producer, is currently expanding mining capacity at its Booysendal mining concession.

Key to the success of this expansion is the cost effective, reliable, safe and environmentally low impact transport of ore over topographically challenging terrain, from mining modules in the south of the concession to the concentrator plant.

To this end, Doppelmayr Transport Technology GmbH (Doppelmayr), headquartered in Austria and a subsidiary of the Doppelmayr group, the world’s leading manufacturer of ropeways, is currently constructing a RopeCon® system which will transport up to 900 tph over 4.9km, with an overall vertical climb of 530 m.
