Modern Process Equipment: Chain-Vey for Flour outperforms Screw Conveyors and Pneumatic Conveyors

Chicago (IL), United States A large flour producer in the US manufactures and distributes corn flour as an ingredient in various food products. Roughly one year ago plant engineers installed three 6-inch Chain-Vey tubular drag conveyors for the transport of yellow and white corn flour. The Chain-Veys supplied by Modern Process Equipment (MPE) replaced screw conveyors and pneumatic conveyors that resulted in poor customer feedback with product being out of spec.

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.
