X-Ray Technology for inspection of coffee in metalized packs
Sesotec’s RAYCON garantees reliable detection The business of Sesotec´s reference customer Khao Shong Group Co.,Ltd. is the coffee blending. Over the years, developed Khao Shong the perfect manufacture process to ensure the optimal flavour of the coffee. Committed to nature and to the efficient use of resources this customer also strives to achieve highest quality. He thus was able to establish himself on the market and to win the confidence of various OEM customers for whom he produces today. In the production of coffee mix 3in1 (instant coffee, milk powder and sugar) broken metal particles from processing machines might contaminate the product. And if this coffee mix – as is the case with this customer – is packed in metallized packs it is difficult to detect such metal particles with conventional methods. Therefore, this company was looking for alternative methods for contaminant detection. The RAYCON X-Ray inspection system from Sesotec is able to detect even smallest metal particles in metallized

Successfully master the winding process
Energy efficient drive designs for almost every application Materials in winding applications place varied demands on drives: Sometimes the issue is high speeds, sometimes precision and in other applications, the challenge of a large mass. The wide spectrum of materials covers raw paper with a width of up to ten meters over a thin film, to carbon fibre threads with low elasticity and high tensile resistance. Paper webs, for example, are rolled with a diameter of around two metres at high speeds of up to 2,000 m/min. Films are sensitive materials which must be wound or unwound extremely precisely, and the winding of metals adds the issue of heavy masses which influence the winding process. One range of drives which embody the required versatility is found in the air motors from DEPRAG SCHULZ GMBH u. CO. The vane motor works according to a simple principle. The rotor turning in an eccentric cylinder is set into motion. Centrifugal force presses the vanes against the rotor wall and working chambers are built. In these working

BK Giulini again relies on RHEWUM technology
RHEWUM screening machines in operation to screen potassium polyphosphate. The company BK Giulini based in Ludwigshafen had two RHEWUM screening machines type WAN in operation to classify potassium polyphosphate, a food additive. These screening machines required more maintenance in the last years of operation (35 years in operation so far). With the procurement of new screening machines, BK Giulini again relied on the current screening technology, the good quality and reliability of RHEWUM GmbH. The new high-performance screening machines type WAU significantly optimize both the classification (separation at 1.0 mm) and the maintenance. Due to the high radiation heat caused by the high product temperature, insulation of the machine walls and additional cooling of the external drives were installed. In addition, there was the challenge of retaining the infeed and outfeed components, which meant that the new machines had to be manufactured to a precise fit. These conditions and the fact that only a few standard components could be

Fertilizer producer optimizes screening process with RHEWUM
One of the world’s leading suppliers of nitrogen-based fertilizers relies on RHEWUM One of the world’s leading suppliers of nitrogen-based fertilizers optimizes its screening processes with RHEWUM machines. One of the end products, CAN (Calcium Ammonium Nitrate), known for its versatility in use, e.g. as preferred application for acid soils, is a widely used fertilizer. However, because of its hygroscopic property it depicts a problem for conventional screens, as they clog quickly. RHEWUM was entrusted with the task of classifying this fertilizer efficiently and precisely into two fractions. Therefore the producer has been using vibration screening machines of the type RHEWUM WA since 2015, which prevent the agglomeration of the particles through their high frequency and the direct excitation of the screen meshes. The anticipated quantity of bulk material of 400 tons per hour, is classified in the fractions of 2.5 millimeters and 4.5 millimeters. Essential for an efficient handling of such amounts, is an optimal distribution over the entire

Free tool for calculating purity and yield!
How does the choice of separation cuts of your screening machine affect the results? Test how the selection of the screen cuts of your screening machine affects the results of your screening process. The new RHEWUM Screen Efficiency Calculator determines the respective purity and yield quickly and easily – without irritating formulas. Every producer aims to extract the greatest possible quantity of his product from the feed quantity without sacrificing the high level of quality. So in the ideal case yield and purity should both be 100 percent. But in practice, this is not technically possible and therefore testing is required to choose the right screen cut for your screening machine in order to extract a product with high yield and at the same maintaining the required purity. The RHEWUM Screen Efficiency Calculator uses the grain size distribution of your feed material, the chosen screen cuts and also the efficiency of the used screening machine to calculate not only the yield and purity, but also the massflow of the different fractions and to

Good luck! - Closure of the last colliery in Germany
On Friday, 21 December 2018, the last German colliery was closed in Bottrop. On Friday, 21 December 2018, the last German colliery wa closed in Bottrop. We wish the miners ”Good Luck!” for the future. All of Germany looked to Bottrop at the end of 2018. After a long tradition the last colliery in Prosper Haniel in Germany has been closed on Friday, 21 December 2018. Thus a long tradition-rich occupation and era came to an end. On the occasion of the closure, an ecumenical service has been held in the Essen Dome, to which the patron saint, the holy Barbara statue, has been brought from a depth of 1,200 metres and to thank the miners for their many years of work. The patron saint was often depicted on miner’s lamps. Such a petroleum lamp, like the one here from RHEWUM, was a duty for the miners to find their way outside in case of a electrical breakdown.

Dinnissen thermidor process
Dinnissen thermidor process
Things are changing rapidly in meat production and the animal feed industry. Consumers have an increasing influence on animal welfare and the feed that the animals are consuming. Several feed additives that were used to control undesired pathogens have already been banned in order to avoid negative effects and to produce a natural and healthy piece of meat. Feed producers are challenged to deliver a healthy feed that is free from undesired pathogens. The natural way to sterilise a product is by means of heat treatment. When making pelletized feed, the heat treatment step takes place during the pelleting process. Mash feed however is usually produced in a cold process, so the absence of undesired pathogens in conventionally produced mash feed cannot be guaranteed. Thermidor® the Dinnissen system for sanitation of mash feed is the answer to those challenges. The first step in the process takes place in a special Pegasus® mixer. By means of direct steam injection the

Clear Action Gate Handling Rice, Wheat and Corn
Clear Action Gate Handling Rice, Wheat and Corn
A global pharmaceutical company was looking for a gate to shut off and control the flow of different ingredients into a dry blender. But the gate needed to adhere to the company’s specifications. • The slide gate must provide a positive seal of materials across the gate and to atmosphere. • All metal and polymer materials of construction must be health compliant. • The slide gate must be able to limit initial material flow as the gate is opened, so that downstream equipment is not “flooded.” • The gate’s inlets and outlets must match with existing equipment. The solution was to install a Vortex Clear Action Gate with a Variable Position Open (VPO) assembly. In addition to a superior material seal across the gate and to atmosphere, the Clear Action Gate “self cleans” its seals on the closing stroke. Traditional slide gates jam and pack material into an end seal upon closure. Alternatively, the Clear Action Gate does not seat into an end seal. This reduces potential
