HDPV2 Gate handling calcium carbide Ball valve replaced by heavy duty gate
HDPV2 Gate handling calcium carbide
Ball valve replaced by heavy duty gate An acetylene gas manufacturer contacted Vortex for advice to handle calcium carbide in their facility. Calcium carbide and acetylene gas react with one another to create oxyacetylene gas. This gas is used to fuel a very high temperature flame, which allows welding fabricators to weld and cut metal. The manufacturer was discharging batches of dry calcium carbide from one pressurized holding vessel into another. The batch was then fed into a reactor, where it was mixed with water to produce acetylene gas. Previously, the client used a ball valve in this process. Unfortunately, calcium carbide would build up inside the ball valve making the valve difficult to actuate. Two operators and a breaker bar were required to manually open and close the ball valve. This process was time-consuming and a safety hazard. The replacement valve would require: •The ability to close on dry solid materials. •Sealing gas in a pressurized system (12 psi | 0.8 bar) In most valve designs,

How to Determine Proper Configuration of Telescopic Loading Bellows ? Things to ponder for problem free operation
How to Determine Proper Configuration of Telescopic Loading Bellows ?
Things to ponder for problem free operation Being an essential component in bulk solid handling processes, loading bellows also known as telescopic chutes, provide dust-free and safe outloading of powdered and granular materials to bulk tankers, trucks, ships and stockpiles. They are generally mounted underneath hoppers, silos or installed at the end of conveyors like elevators, screw feeders or pneumatic conveying systems. Bulk solids on the upper side are transferred to the downstream vehicle, ship or stockpile efficiently without any dust emission and product loss. There exist wide range of bellow configurations for different applications. Proper selection of configuration is essential for efficient and dust-free loading. Some of the most used configurations are explained below: Single Outer Bellow Single outer bellows provide economical solution for low dust content, granular material loading operations. There exists one bellow that maintains the confined region in the system. Product flows downward through

Efficiently track and manage assets With FlexTrak from Brady
Efficiently track and manage assets
With FlexTrak from Brady With FlexTrak from Brady, you can efficiently track, check and manage assets or inventory from any wifi-enabled place. FlexTrak Once set up, users can easily add or remove assets from stock or inventory by scanning an asset barcode or entering its serial number. FlexTrak will access the specific asset`s information. Asset data can be changed in the same way by specific users that are allowed to update asset features or characteristics in the software to manage assets. Reports on stored or updated assets can be auto-generated. Easy to use Brady offers assistance with the initial setup of FlexTrak and has technical professionals standby to help solve any future challenge. From then on, users can scan assets in or out, or scan additional volume in on delivery, out on use or easily update scanned asset information. Exports can be made to Brady Workstation apps via a spreadsheet to easily design barcoded labels that can be printed with a range of BradyPrinters. Access

Poeth Big-Bag Compactor Dust-free disposal of empty big bags
Poeth Big-Bag Compactor
Dust-free disposal of empty big bags Big-bags are increasingly being used in the processing of raw materials. After big-bags are emptied, they are often folded. Unnecessary dust is created during folding. This substance emission is avoided by means of a big-bag compactor with an integrated compressed air-cleaned filter. Moreover, the space in the compactor is so large that the big-bag fits neatly in without folding. The extraction system naturally keeps everything neatly under reduced pressure. The amount of waste is reduced to a minimum amount. The empty Big-Bags are packed dust-tight at the end in an endless foil. The integrated filter is suitable for very different powders (from very fine to very sticky). A secondary HEPA filter can be placed behind the filter. The unit is equipped, whether or not mobile, with its own control / control box. A traditional bag compactor is often used to compact empty big bags, but these often get stuck. Big bags are much stiffer than empty bags. The Poeth Big-Bag compactor,

New energy storage media – There are many new solutions Power to Heat (or Power to X)
New energy storage media – There are many new solutions
Power to Heat (or Power to X) Power to Heat – who does not know this topic, which is about storing excess energy from renewable energy sources in heat. But what are the current developments? Are there any changes in the market? Yes, they exist. Besides Power to Heat, we also talk about Power to X. Here, the X stands for all other options, where you can temporarily store energy. The possibilities of storing energy in gas, in batteries and in pumped storage plants are already known. Another option is to convert electricity into steam using Power to Steam. But there are also initial ideas to store excess energy in a special concrete or to store the energy in molten salt. Especially these seem to be on the rise, because salt does not evaporate like water and can be brought to temperatures of over 600°C. In connection with the energy density of salt and the high temperatures, extremely much energy can be stored. Energy recovery occurs through turbines. The salt evaporates water and drives a turbine,

Retractable head section on port terminal for transporting
Retractable head section on port terminal for transporting
NM Heilig BV has been working since September 2015 on the replacement of a conveyor belt system in one of Europe`s largest transfer facilities in Rotterdam. The operation takes place while the terminal remains fully operational. The new conveyor belts can be used flexibly and are built in a sustainable manner. For example, there are conveyor belts with Retractable heads. These make it possible to move the discharge point of the conveyor forwards or backwards. In this way, it is possible to determine flexibly at which point the bulk goods will be deposited. All conveyors are coated with a heavy-duty duplex preservation system to guarantee a long service life.

COMSOL Launches Version 5.5 of Comsol multiphysics®
Version 5.5 introduces powerful geometry modeling tools, faster solvers, and two new products. A few of the major news are: # Geometry sketching: Version 5.5 include new sketching tools for easier modeling of planar drawings in 2D models and 3D work planes. The Design Module provides additional drawing tools for assigning dimensions and constraints to geometry sketches. # Introducing two modules: the Porous Media Flow Module and the Metal Processing Module further expand the product suite`s multiphysics modeling power. # Efficient Distribution of Standalone Applications: It is much more efficient to distribute simulation applications, thanks to a new option in Comsol compiler™, which creates minimal file size standalone applications. Application file sizes can be as small as just a few MB. # News in add-on modules: Notable news include improved shape and topology optimization, nonlinear shells, random vibration, fast linear elastic wave simulations, and combined full wave and ray optics analysis. Highlights in Version 5.5 - New sketching tool with dimensions

Concetti launches the IGF1200 Two systems in one without product contamination
Concetti launches the IGF1200
Two systems in one without product contamination Concetti SpA, manufacturer of automatic systems for bagging and palletising bulk products, has designed a new packaging solution for animal feed supplements or similar applications to manage both medicated and non-medicated feeds, within a single machine but still minimising the risk of cross-contamination between product batches. This is a highly regulated area requiring careful design to meet all the client and regulatory requirements. Two filling systems in one and a small footprint The filler is equipped with two separate weighing and filling systems, which work alternately, thus reducing the risk of transmitting active substances between different products. In addition to physical separation of products during weighing and filling, the machine is equipped with a highly efficient cleaning system. The preformed bag, once full, can then be sewn or heat-sealed, based on the needs of the manufacturer. The bags are then conveyed to the palletiser. The installation requires
