The service friendly Basic line air motor Thanks to the time saving QuickVChange vane exchange system
The service friendly Basic line air motor
Thanks to the time saving QuickVChange vane exchange system Long system downtimes due to increasing maintenance works are still an issue in production. However, there are sometimes simple solutions which can significantly reduce maintenance time. For this reason, the engineers at Deprag schulz gmbh u. CO. developed the Basic line air vane motor, with a particularly attractive price-performance ratio. The one of a kind QuickVChange vane exchange system (the V stands for vane) is globally unique and is an enormous time saver. With just a few quick movements vanes are exchanged problem free. A lengthy system standstill is eliminated because vane exchange on the service friendly Basic line air motor takes place in situ on the machine without disassembly. Using an Allen key and tweezer, worn out vanes can be exchanged in next to no time – even by untrained personnel. After loosening the cylinder screws on the rear bearing cover and removing the end, vanes can be replaced quickly and simply. The whole job is competed within a couple

Rotating Drum Magnet & Housing Continuous Self-Cleaning magnet
Rotating Drum Magnet & Housing
Continuous Self-Cleaning magnet Rotating Drum Magnets provide good separation in applications where there is a high concentration of metal contamination or terminating the product flow for cleaning of the magnet is not feasible. Rotating Drum Magnets are designed for continuous self-cleaning of metal contaminants from product flow streams. As product enters the housing inlet, an adjustable feed gate meters the flow of product to the drum face. The drum has a stationary, 180 degree arc, internal magnet, with an outer drum shell that rotates. When product passes over the powerful magnetic field, metal contaminants are attracted to the drum surface where they are safely held on to until the ferrous material passes through the magnetic field where it is discharged to the rear of the drum housing. Cleaned filtered product is discharged to the front of the drum housing. These are commonly used with wood, sand, glass, rubber, powders, and many other applications.

Shaken or stirred? The optimization of mixing processes with the simulation software Rocky dem
Shaken or stirred?
The optimization of mixing processes with the simulation software Rocky dem Traditionally, the quality assessment of mixing processes in many companies is still based on time-consuming test series, which, especially in batch processes, provide insufficient data on the time course and the overall spatial distribution of the mixing quality. Liebherr Mischtechnik reports in our Cadfem journal article (see link on the right) how the use of particle simulation with ROCKY-DEM helps to optimise process parameters - to improve energy efficiency and compound quality as well as to save costs. With ROCKY-DEM, input parameters such as particle sizes and size ratios as well as the speed and residence time of the product could be varied quickly. An evaluation of the mixing quality was now possible over the entire mixing trough and at any time. Statements about required torques and optimum speeds can also be made in this way. In addition, statements on new developments or design changes can be made by means of simulation without the need for cost-intensive

CenTrax belt tracker puts conveyor belts with garland roller
CenTrax belt tracker puts conveyor belts with garland roller
A cement factory in the United Kingdom was experiencing a lot of problems due to a 1200 mm wide conveyor belt, fitted with 5-part garland roller pairs, mistracking. The installation was fitted with tracking systems that were not performing correctly. CentTrax engineers were able to design a custom-made solution. The design, with a CenTrax S-1200 belt tracker as the framework, is based on the existing CenTrax load carrying and return strand tracking systems. For many years, these systems have proven to be effective under the most arduous conditions. Unlike the standard CenTrax three-roller tracking systems, the S-1200-5V-P has five rollers (two tapered and three flat rollers). These five rollers have the same trough shape as the garland roller pairs. Swivel bearing Contrary to the mounted tracking systems, CenTrax has only one pivot point, also known as a swivel bearing. The swivel bearing is fully sealed and unaffected by moisture, dust and dirt. The robust bearings

Polimak mobile bulk truck loader
Polimak mobile bulk truck loader
Big bag discharging and bulk truck loading processes are always problematic. The dust spread to the atmosphere during big bag discharging and truck loading. Lifting big bags by overhead cranes or forklifts above the truck and discharging by manpower causes safety risks. Inefficient methods increase operation time, labor and energy costs. A fixed big bag discharging and truck loading terminal could also be possible but the storage location of big bags and truck loading stations may not be close to each other. Though, lots of big bag transportation operations might be needed. And the investment cost of such a terminal may not lead to a feasible solution. Huge bulk trucks may not approach to big bag discharge station or they may not make moves easily in the plant. Though, these trucks and forklifts cause a traffic jam. This means operational problems, lost of time and energy, occupational safety risks. No more worries. Polimak Mobile Big Bag Discharge and Bulk Truck

Telescoping Loading Spouts Handling Feed Ingredients
Telescoping Loading Spouts Handling Feed Ingredients
A Feed Mill contacted Vortex to help them control material dust in their facility. They were using a method where material would free-fall into the individual retaining areas, creating a massive dust storm and potential employee health issues. A wheel loader transports the feed ingredients from the stockpile to a mixer. From there, the material is pelleted, bagged, and stored on pallets ready for shipments. Vortex supplied six telescoping loading spouts for the Feed Mill. Each spout is 508 mm across and equipped with double layer, trapezoidal shaped dust skirts that encompasses the peak of the material pile – containing the dust as material is stockpiled. An external tilt probe signals the Auto-Raise System and manages the spout’s retraction process (keeping the dust skirt on the material and preventing material build-up in the spout) as the pile grows.

Safe loading of bulk goods in explosive atmosphere MOLOSroto rotary paddle level indicators approved for zone 20 offer new opportunities
Safe loading of bulk goods in explosive atmosphere
MOLOSroto rotary paddle level indicators approved for zone 20 offer new opportunities There are principally two kinds of loading bellows. Beside the loading bellows for closed loading of dusty bulk solids into trucks or wagons with filling holes there are systems for the open loading of bulk solids onto trucks, wagons, ships or heaps. During the open loading of potentially explosive bulk solids it could happen, that the complete MOLOSroto sensor is located in zone 20. One example are large loading systems for ships with a loading capacity of 2.000 m3/h and a height difference up to 50 m. In this loading bellows three MOLOSroto level indicators are required for the control of the discharge header and they are mounted completely in zone 20. The rotary paddle level indicator MOLOSroto DF21 approved for zone 20 offers the designers of loading systems new opportunities. With this approval the complete sensor including control unit can be mounted in potentially explosive atmospheres of zone 20.

ACHEMA 2021 with a new look and new focus themes
More modern, more interactive and always at the pulse of the process industry A year and a half before the 33rd ACHEMA opens its doors, preparations are already in full swing. This also includes the identification of three focus topics that will shape the industry as a whole affecting all exhibition groups. For the 2021 edition these are - Product and process safety The increasing use of Internet of Things (IoT) devices in plant operation and production puts IT and cyber security at the top of the agenda. Cyber attacks are becoming more frequent. The interplay between the physical and virtual worlds must therefore be secured. Weak spots along the entire value chain have to be evaluated and eliminated, from the procurement of raw materials to the recycling of products at the end of their useful life. - The digital lab It’s in many cases still a long way to go before intelligent digital workflows will be implemented in a fully networked laboratory. The minimum basis is the construction of a powerful IT environment and fully integrated devices;

Automatic conductivity meter doesn’t give sparks a chance Conductivity Measurement with MLA1000
Automatic conductivity meter doesn’t give sparks a chance
Conductivity Measurement with MLA1000 On the way to and at their destination, light mineral oils such as kerosene, petroleum or rolling and hydraulic oils are refined, cleaned and transshipped, among others. As they have a low conductivity, there is a very high risk of electrostatic charges during the many different processes. Regular checks and documentation are required to safely manage and control these work steps and thus avoid charging. MBA Instruments, the specialist for conductivity measurement, has taken up this challenge and developed the MLA1000 meter which quickly and continuously delivers exact measurement results so that effective measures can be taken to prevent electrostatic charges. Strictly designed in accordance with the German TRGS 727 Technical Rule, the meter ensures the safe transport of light mineral oils to their destination. Jet A-1 type kerosene often has to cover a distance of several hundred kilometers in pipelines from the tank farm to its destination at the airport. Safety is

CenTrax goes Down Under Belt trackers for Promet Mining & Metals Australia.
CenTrax goes Down Under
Belt trackers for Promet Mining & Metals Australia. Promet Mining & Metals has been our dealer for Australia since 2018. Employees of the company located in Malaga, a suburb of Perth in Western Australia, have many years of experience in optimising conveyor belt systems. Western Australia, with over 1,000 active mines, is an important mining area in the southern hemisphere. Every day, mined raw materials such as iron ore, gold and nickel find their way onto various conveyor belts that are affected by mistracking problems. So, it’s hardly surprising that CenTrax got off to a flying start in the southern hemisphere. For example, in the first year alone, no fewer than 110 belt trackers were delivered, 52 of which were installed in a nickel mine. CenTrax wishes James Stamelos, Managing Director of Promet, and Raymond Gianoli, General Manager of Promet, and their team every success with their operations.
