No Big-Bang in Wood Processing: Innovative Explosion Protection for Wood-processing Plants

By R. Post Since the re-discovery of regenerative energy sources wood processing has seen a considerable growth due to the demand of easy to handle fuel. In view of the ignitability and explosibility of the developing wood dust provisions must be taken to minimize/prevent the impacts of dust explosions. Continue reading No Big-Bang in Wood Processing: Innovative Explosion Protection for Wood-processing Plants

Specifying a Bulk Bag Filler: The six most important Parameters to consider

By D. Boger – As the number of options for bulk bag filling equipment options increases, so should the ability of the specifier to evaluate stand-alone equipment and integrated systems against current and anticipated needs. Continue reading Specifying a Bulk Bag Filler: The six most important Parameters to consider

Limestone in a Silo: OK – but out? Resolving Material Accumulation in Cement Plant Limestone Silo

By C. Schmelzer – Cement production involves a good deal of bulk material handling. As the base materials, and especially their handling behaviour, are prone to humidity, special action must be taken to keep these materials moving in the course of the production process. Continue reading Limestone in a Silo: OK – but out? Resolving Material Accumulation in Cement Plant Limestone Silo

High Angle Conveying: The Vital (missing) Link to IPCC Systems – 2017

By J.A. Dos Santos  Installations and recent studies have demonstrated the technical and economical advantages of high angle conveying for optimization of any IPCC system, yet that industry continues to struggle with the use of conventional solutions to achieve the high angle function. Continue reading High Angle Conveying: The Vital (missing) Link to IPCC Systems – 2017

Belt Replacement at a Long Distance Pipe Conveyor: Belt Design, Installation and Power Measurement

By A. Minkin, A. Jungk and T. Hontscha When the Arch Western Coal Skyline Mine decided to replace the old belt of its long distance BC-8 pipe conveyor, a new belt had to be designed to be suitable to the existing routing. In addition, a special installation procedure had to be developed to minimise downtime during the belt installation and commissioning. Continue reading Belt Replacement at a Long Distance Pipe Conveyor: Belt Design, Installation and Power Measurement

BHS Mixers used in a major Project to build a Hydro Dam in Portugal

Sonthofen, Germany – Talleres Alquezar has been successfully using two BHS mixers in a modular plant to produce a total volume of 400,000 m3 of hydro dam concrete in Portugal since 2017. The twin-shaft batch mixer has debunked the industry myth that the technology is unsuitable for these types of concrete mixes and has shown that it is the technology of choice during this demanding major project. The Spanish plant builder was even able to surpass the high concrete requirements with regard to the suitability of the mixer for the project. Continue reading BHS Mixers used in a major Project to build a Hydro Dam in Portugal
