Reports on “Parts and Services”

Baghouse Services Utilize 40 Years of Experience

With over 40 years of dust collection experience, our Baghouse Service Program helps customers lower emissions and meet EPA standards. Experienced technicians and trained crews handle inspections, bag changes, repairs, installations both new & used, flow studies, conversions and more for any size dust collector or brand.
Benefits of Baghouse Service Program:
Extended life of bags

  • Lower emissions
  • Reduced downtime
  • Reduced in-house maintenance costs
  • Improved plant sanitation and employee satisfaction
  • Minimized plant liability
  • Reduced operational costs
  • Reduced spare parts inventory

Tech Tips:
Monitoring the Differential Pressure of Your Baghouse
Tips from Schenck Process Service Technicians to ensure your equipment continues to run accurately and efficiently.

  • The differential pressure reading is a simple way to get a quick assessment of how your baghouse is running. It is important to monitor the pressure differential of your baghouse on a regular basis (at least once a day), and make sure the pressure differential gauge is working correctly.
  • If there are any sudden changes in the pressure differential, whether up or down, first make sure the two lines connecting the gauge are not plugged, crimped or damaged.
  • If the gauge is reading “normal” range, and there are no emissions visible, the filter is running properly. If, however, you begin to notice an upward creep in the pressure differential, it can be an indication that the filter bags are beginning to plug and may need to be replaced.
  • If there is sudden upward spike in pressure differential, it is usually symptomatic of an upset condition in the baghouse (for example, a sudden influx of moisture-laden air that decreases bag permeability) or possible problems with the bag-cleaning system.
  • If there is a sudden decrease in pressure differential, often accompanied by visible emissions, may indicate actual failure of one or more filter bags.
  • If you have any questions please contact our Baghouse Service group at 800-821-2476.

Complete this puzzle and send it to mktg@schenckprocess.com for your chance to win a $100 VISA gift card. Winner will be determined by the most correct answers. In case of a tie a drawing will be held to determine a winner.


Tech Tips:MECHATRON Feeders
Tips from Schenck Process Service Technicians to ensure your equipment continues to run accurately and efficiently.

  • Make sure your flex hopper clamp is above the guide pin on the front of the hopper. This ensures material will never leak from the flex hopper connection.
  • Do not use any chlorine based cleaners on the flexible hopper. If you have questions check with the Schenck Process Service department to make sure you’re cleaner is approved.
  • Make sure your inlet and discharge connections always have a little bit of slack. A feeder on load cells should be “floating.”
  • If in gravimetric mode make sure the feeder remains untouched. Bumping or resting on the feeder while its running can greatly influence the load cells and flow rate.
  • If changing to a new material, contact the Schenck Process Service department to help verify your helix is capable of your required rates.
  • If you have any questions please contact our Technical Service group at 888-742-1249 x3.

Bulk Solids PumpTM for precise feeding of free flowing bulk materials

First in the Industry: Positive Displacement Feeding Technology

 

The new Coperion K-Tron Bulk Solids Pump (BSP) feeders have been specifically designed and engineered to provide gentle, precise feeding of free-flowing materials

The Features

Coperion K-Tron Bulk Solids Pump (BSP) feeders have been specifically designed and engineered to provide gentle, precise feeding of free-flowing pellets, granules, and friable products.

Preview animations and video

The BSP feeders do not use the usual screws/augers, belts or vibratory trays to convey the material. The feeder utilizes positive displacement action to feed free flowing materials with astounding accuracy, offering uniform discharge, consistent volume and gentle handling.

The BSP feeders have vertical rotating discs that create a product lock-up zone, conveying the material smoothly from storage hopper to discharge outlet, achieving true linear mass flow.

Utilizing a simple design and the principle known as “lock up” (see demonstration), the material in the feeder is moved together in true positive displacement, producing excellent linearity and breakthrough accuracy levels.

With no pockets or screws and only one moving part, the compact feeder is cleaned in seconds, making it ideal for applications with frequent material changes.

BSP-100

The BSP-100 features a single feeding duct formed by two rotating discs. It includes a conical inlet transition piece which can be combined with a variety of standard extension hoppers.

A slide gate on the inlet allows for material shut-off and removal of feeder for cleaning and hopper emptying. A low power stepper motor drive mechanism and controller provide excellent turndown and flexibility ensuring a very wide operating range.

 

The BSP-100 is designed for feed rates of 2 to 400 dm³/hr (0.07 to 14 ft³/hr). It is available as a volumetric unit or as a gravimetric unit with a choice of 2 platform scales, single point suspension scale or three-point suspension scale.

 


BSP-135

The BSP-135 is a slightly larger version of the BSP-100, with all the same features except that it has three feeding ducts instead of one.

The BSP-135 is designed for feed rates of 22 to 4,400 dm³/hr (0.8 to 155  ft³/hr).

Unit is available as volumetric or as gravimetric, with a choice of platform scale, single-point suspension scale, or three-point suspension scale.

 


BSP-150-S

BSP-150-S is designed with four feeding ducts, and is based on the same technology as the BSP-100, but manufactured of stainless steel.

The unit is designed with an inlet transisiotn piece, as well as a stepper motor and removable material discharge chute.

Gravimetric Batch Blenders

Coperion K-Tron Gravimetric Batch Blenders are available in various sizes from 0.5 kg to 25 kg total batch size and include up to 8 main feed elements depending on the unit.

Application

Each one of the materials is dispensed sequentially into a common weighing hopper in the desired proportions. The weighed materials are then released into a separate mixing chamber, which provides a consistent homogeneous blend. It includes an advanced metering and weighing system that accurately controls every ingredient of every batch to the desired amounts and is not averaged over multiple batches.

Gravimetric Batch Blenders Design Features

The Coperion K-Tron range of blenders are compact with a robust design. They are designed and constructed of heavy gauge steel (11 gauge steel) to withstand the most rigorous of operating conditions. The load cell is overload protected and guarded from physical damage. Each blender is constructed with high load bearing continuous welding and is protected against vibration and shocks. All blenders include self-optimizing software to give you the most efficient output on every recipe. Continuous mixing of the bulk materials means the mixing times do not need to be adjusted and the consistency of every mix is guaranteed.

Playing with Fire? A Guide to Fire Retardant Conveyor Belts

September 2014

If a belt does not perform according to the manufacturer’s claims by wearing prematurely, ripping too easily, disintegrating due to excessive heat or because of oil penetration, the risk to life and limb is relatively small. But if a conveyor belt that is specified as being fire resistant catches fire but does not resist the fire the way that it should do then it will literally ‘convey’ the fire throughout the site. The consequences can be catastrophic.

 

Is cost being put before safety? 

Due to the financial pressures, more and more organisations are being forced to examine their day-to-day running costs and, almost inevitably, seek cost savings. The pressure to cut costs seems to be influencing buying decisions concerning fire resistant conveyor belts but is price being put before safety? The discovery that a belt is not sufficiently fire retardant is only likely to be made when it is too late.

Anecdotal as well as factual evidence gained from extensive laboratory testing certainly indicates that even some of the biggest users of conveyor belts are using belts that are not as resistant to fire as they are claimed to be. In a growing number of instances, many bulk material handling sites that should be using fire resistant belting are operating with non-fire resistant belts simply in the pursuit of ‘economy’.

At the same time, insurance companies are becoming increasingly concerned. According to at least one major insurer, claims for fires directly involving conveyor belts are costing an average of nearly $8 million per claim. To find out more about this highly important and complex subject we sought the guidance of the chairman of the international standards (ISO and CEN) committee and one of the world’s leading authorities in conveyor belting, Sytze Brouwers.

No conveyor belt is fire proof

Fire resistant standards for test methods and specifications applied to conveyor belts are becoming increasingly stringent and can be very confusing. The first and most important thing to bear in mind is that conveyor belts cannot be totally fire proof. Using special additives and chemicals, the rubber used in the top and bottom covers that protect the carcass of the belt and the rubber skim between the fabric plies of the carcass can be engineered to resist fire but the complete structure of the belt cannot be made fire proof. The fabrics used in the carcass of the belt most commonly contain polyester and nylon, which have virtually no resistance to fire. In other words, every belt will begin to burn (and continue to burn) when exposed to a naked flame that has sufficient energy to ignite the belt.

 

What is meant by ‘fire resistance’?

Once a belt is ignited by flame then it will continue to burn until it is no longer exposed to the source of ignition. Although commonly referred to as ‘fire resistance’ within the conveyor belt industry, in real terms it is the ability of specifically designed rubber to self-extinguish once the source of ignition is no longer present.

 

Environments with inflammable dust and gas

EN 12882 is the standard for safety requirements for conveyor belts for general-purpose use (not underground). The most basic electrical and flammability safety requirement is EN 12882 Category 1. For environments where dust or other potentially combustible materials are involved, it is essential that the conveyor belt cannot create static electricity that could ignite the atmosphere. Belts need to be able to allow static electricity to pass through the metal frame of the conveyor structure down to earth rather than allow static to build up. At Dunlop we decided some time ago that the safest approach was for all of our belts to be anti-static and conform to EN/ISO 284 international standards. This means that they can all be used in ATEX 95 (94/9/EC Directive) classified zones. Some people mistakenly believe that all belts used in ATEX classified zones must be flame retardant but actually this is not the case.

ATEX regulations apply to industrial environments where there is a risk of explosion because dust or gas is present in the atmosphere. For those organizations that are buying conveyor belts for use in ATEX regulated areas it is very important to ask potential suppliers for a copy of a certificate provided by an appropriate independent testing authority such as the German Institute Dekra Exam GmBH.

Above-ground and general service applications

Because fire safety is such an important issue there are numerous safety classifications and international standards for which there are many different tests used to measure the self-extinguishing properties of conveyor belts. Rubber belts reinforced by layers of textile fabrics (multi-ply) or steelcord reinforcement are the most commonly used type above ground and in general service applications. The basis of most tests for belting used in normal industrial applications is EN/ISO 340. This standard makes the distinction between fire resistance with covers (K) and fire resistance with and without covers (S).

The relevance of “with and without covers” is that as belt covers wear during their operational life the amount of fire resistant rubber protecting the flammable carcass reduces. The best way to decide between ‘K’ and ‘S‘ grades is to consider the material being carried. For moderately abrasive materials then ‘K’ grade is usually perfectly adequate. This also applies to elevator belts. However, if the material is abrasive and tends to wear the top cover quite rapidly then the safest option is be to choose the ‘S‘ grade.

In both ‘K’ (EN 12882 Class 2A) and ‘S’ (EN 12882 Class 2B) grades, the rubber skim that bonds the fabric layers of the carcass together should also be fire resistant. In the case of ‘S’ grade (fire resistant without covers), the rubber skim should be thicker than the skim used for ‘K’ grade. The easiest way to tell if a ‘K’ grade belt has the required thicker rubber skims is to obtain technical datasheets from the manufacturer for both ‘S’ grade and ‘K’ grades and compare the carcass thickness figures.

Another reason why buyers should always request technical datasheets before placing an order is that they include information on the level of abrasion (wear) resistance. The ingredients used to create a fire resistant rubber compound generally have an adverse effect on its wear resistant properties. Consequently, fire resistant belts tend to wear faster and as the thickness of the rubber reduces so does the level of protection given to the inflammable carcass. To avoid premature belt replacement, in the case of purely fire resistance belting, buyers should always demand an average abrasion resistance level of no more than 150mm³.

ISO 340 testing
ISO 340 testing

At Dunlop our rubber compound technicians have proved that it is possible to have the best of both worlds by developing a fire resistant rubber that also has good resistance to abrasion. In fact our technicians have created a compound that has 50% better wear resistance than the DIN Y standard for abrasion resistant rubber. This means that the belt retains its resistance to fire for much longer and at the same time extends the operational lifetime by the same proportion. However, laboratory tests have revealed that this is very much an exception to the rule within the conveyor belt industry.

Poor quality fire resistant belt can be expensive!
Poor quality fire resistant belt can be expensive!EN/ISO 340 testing

EN/ISO 340 tests involve exposing 6 individual samples of belt to a naked flame causing them to burn. The source of the flame is then removed and the combustion time (duration of flame) of the test piece is recorded. A current of air is then applied to the test piece for a specified time after the removal of the flame. The flame should not re-ignite.

The time it takes for the belt sample to self-extinguish is then measured. The duration of continued burning (visible flame) should be less than 15 seconds for each sample with a maximum cumulative duration of 45 seconds for each group of six tests. This factor is of paramount importance because it determines how fire can be effectively carried along a moving belt. The effects of fire being literally ‘conveyed’ to adjoining buildings can be seen in some of the photographs.

Even if a manufacturer states that their fire resistant belt has passed the ISO 340 test, the buyer should still exercise caution. A typical conveyor belt can easily travel more than 40 meters within the 15 seconds sufficient for a belt sample to pass the test but which would still allow the belt to carry flames over a potentially dangerous distance. For this reason our required time limit standard in Dunlop is no more than one second, ideally 0 seconds. Buyers of fire resistant belt are therefore recommended to ask to see copies of the test results and to check that the laboratory that has carried out the tests has EN ISO 17025 certification.

What standard of fire resistance do I need?

 When choosing a fire resistant conveyor belt, establishing the correct level or standard of fire resistance needed for a specific application or environment is of crucial importance. This can present one of the most difficult challenges for users of conveyor belts. For the vast majority of belts being used in the open air, Class 2A or 2B would be perfectly adequate. Class 2A demands that the belt is able to pass the ISO 340 test described earlier with the covers intact on the belt samples (K grade). Class 2B requires that the belt that can also pass the ISO 340 test with the top and bottom cover rubber removed (S grade). As mentioned earlier, the electrical conductivity of the belt also needs to fulfill the requirements of ISO 284.

If you are still unsure of the fire resistant grade of belting needed then it is best to carry out an internal risk assessment. If the expertise for this does not exist within your company then there are a number of external organizations (and almost certainly your insurers) that can perform this function for you.

For conveyors carrying materials that contain oil such as wood chips and biomass (some types can spontaneously combust), rubber compounds that are resistant to fire, abrasion and oil are available. There are, of course, two types of oil resistance – mineral and vegetable. This is yet another important consideration when deciding on the correct type of fire resistant belt so buyers are recommended to be very specific when making requests for quotations from manufacturers and suppliers.

CEN fire test standards

One of the most problematic aspects of fire testing rubber conveyor beltsfor industrial use above ground is that most of the test methods were established many years ago specifically for underground mining belts. Enormously complex and very costly testing has to be made by independent testing institutions. Because of environmental regulations, large-scale gallery fire tests now involve using a 12-meter long container filled with carbon to filter the smoke emissions before being released into the atmosphere. In order to be awarded a safety standard certificate every belt type has to be independently tested. For some tests a minimum of 20 meters of belt is needed

Such tests can easily cost up to 20,000 euros or more. For the manufacturers of solid woven underground mining belts and steelcord belting this is not a particularly big problem because there are a relatively small number of different belt types that have to be supplied for testing in large quantities. Although the test certificates are valid for several years, these large-scale tests present a huge and costly problem to manufacturers of rubber belting for above ground use because there is a much wider range of belt types. Such complex test methods have made it extremely difficult to develop improved levels of fire safety because if a belt sample fails the tests then the technicians have to go back to the drawing board to make further changes to the rubber compound and then embark on another round of expensive tests.

Apart from hindering development of fire resistant belting, it also means that it is very difficult to adequately test those belts that manufacturers claim reach specific levels of fire resistance. This is one of the reasons why there are so many end-users operating conveyors fitted with belts that provide totally inadequate levels of fire safety.

 

New CEN fire test standards to be introduced

The problem has long been recognised by the CEN standards committee and over recent years they have been trying to find a solution. Following recent meetings attended by technical experts from all over Europe, the Committee European de Normalization will be introducing several positive changes in 2014.

Agreement has been reached on using and adapting tests already in existence for quality standards such as DIN and BS that will involve much smaller scale tests using much smaller equipment. This will mean that major manufacturers will be able to experiment and carry out testing in their own laboratories. Ironically, these new test methods will actually be even more demanding than the old, large-scale tests. Major insurance companies are already showing interest and are becoming involved in discussions. For them, and for all genuinely safety conscious organisations, this can only be very good news.

 

Don’t play with fire

Although manufacturers and suppliers may be able to provide test certificates, in some cases the certificate may only relate to the belting that the manufacturer produced for test certification purposes. In reality, the actual belt delivered to site may well not be up to the required standard. For greater peace of mind we would suggest ordering an extra meter of belt and then have that piece of belt tested by an accredited testing authority or laboratory.

The price of not exercising caution simply cannot be calculated.
