Rheinberg, Germany – AUMUND Brazil and AUMUND China joined forces and worked closely with Sinoma Tianjin TDI to claim two orders in succession for the AUMUND Group of Companies from South America. AUMUND will supply three chain bucket elevators, eight belt bucket elevators, five pan conveyors and a drag chain conveyor for the construction of L’Amali Line 2 at Loma Negra Companía Industrial, the leading cement producer in Argentina.
Lincoln (NE), United States – Wiring complexity and costs can be an obstacle when installing level sensors. BinMaster’s SPL-100 battery-powered single point laser allows use of level sensors on silos or in remote locations where inventory monitoring has not been feasible. Continue reading BinMaster: Battery-Powered Laser Level Sensor makes Wiring obsolete
Lincoln (NE), United States – The simple-to-install 1-1/2” NPT BinMaster NCR-80 non-contact radar now offers optional Class II certifications for hazardous locations. This 80 GHz sensor focuses its powerful signal in a narrow 4° beam to penetrate dust and accurately measure solids in silos up to 80 feet tall.
Los Alamitos (CA), United States – The EchoPro® Pulse Radar Solids Level Sensors from Flowline offer reliable and cost-effective non-contact level measurement for difficult applications. These 26 GHz pulse radar sensors work with powders, grains, pellets and aggregates in dusty environments with limited space and varying angles of material repose.
Darmstadt, Germany – Schenck Process released the latest generation of its SENSiQ® WB weighbeam technology, a high-capacity load cell with a nominal capacity of 600 metric tons for installation by simple bolting into the given steel structure. This makes it ideal for hopper scales with a total weight of up to 2500 tons, as well as for hoppers in train loading systems.
Winnipeg (MB), Canada – G3 Canada Limited (G3) announced plans to build two new facilities including its first primary elevator in Alberta, and further expand its grain origination network in Saskatchewan. G3 intends to build a new primary elevator south of Wetaskiwin in Central Alberta. The facility will be the first G3 location in the Province of Alberta. At the same time G3 will continue its rapid growth in Saskatchewan with the construction of a new primary elevator near Maidstone.
Bolton, United Kingdom – Solids handling equipment maker, Ajax Equipment, announced a new type of silo cascade mixer enabling batch powder processing in squat, square mixing containers in place of tall conventional conical hoppers, for plants where space is limited. The mixer combines mass flow and intake recycling screw technology that minimises power consumption whilst providing efficient mixing. Continue reading Ajax: Compact Silo Cascade Mixer Space-Saving Alternative to conventional Conical Hoppers
Adlington, UK — Having been awarded the contract earlier in 2017 Fairport Engineering has now delivered some twelve drag link conveyors and five bucket elevators to a new client in Nigeria. These pieces of equipment and various ancillaries such as actuated valves, chute-work and spares will form the key mechanical units in a challenging project to increase wheat mill production capacity from 65 to some 200 t/h.
Lincoln (NE), USA — Operations burdened with managing inventory in pie-shaped segments of silos now have a solution that provides very accurate volume data—thanks to new firmware for the BinMaster 3DLevelScanner acoustic sensor. The 3DLevelScanner measures and models the topography of material contained in these unusually-shaped wedges. The newest firmware then applies the measured distances to a 3D model of vessel dimensions and converts it to a highly accurate volume measurement.
Shakopee (MJN), USA — Emerson has launched a dedicated version of its Rosemount™ 5408 Non-Contacting Radar Level Transmitter to meet the specific demands of bulk solids level measurement. Through advanced technology and Human Centered Design principles, the SIL 3-capable device delivers enhanced accuracy, reliability and ease-of-use, supporting improved process optimization and plant safety across a wide range of industries.
