CenTrax keeps ArcelorMittal conveyor belt on the right track
CenTrax keeps ArcelorMittal conveyor belt on the right track
At its location in Ghent, ArcelorMittal Belgium was experiencing severe misalignment problems with their 225 conveyor belts, which have a total length of 58 kilometres. The damage caused to the conveyor, its structure and unplanned downtime resulted in high costs, loss of production and consequential losses. Tim Vertriest, reliability engineer at ArcelorMittal Ghent, decided to find a solution: “The CenTrax tracking system came out best in our comparison search, and has proved to be a lasting solution.“ A trouble-free conveyor belt is crucial for a company such as ArcelorMittal. The Raw Materials, Port, Transport and Recycling divisions of the world’s largest steel producer processes almost 10 million tonnes of raw materials annually. This particular logistics branch deals with unloading seagoing vessels and the careful separation and storage of delivered raw materials to so-called raw material storage areas. Harbour cranes and stacker- and reclaimer installations are

AVA supplies dryers for high-purity plant proteins Winprocess is the agent for AVA in the Benelux
AVA supplies dryers for high-purity plant proteins
Winprocess is the agent for AVA in the Benelux Plant proteins often form an essential part of a vegetarian or vegan diet, which is why this product is in high demand. However, several process steps are required to obtain high-purity plant proteins suitable for human consumption from almonds, sunflowers or, for example. One of the challenges is the final drying process. A producer of plant proteins required a machine for the final process step – the drying of the protein meal. The machine needed to meet the high requirements of food production while at the same time enabling optimum drying even in the low temperature range. In addition, the system had to be able to recover the solvents. AVA, part of BHS Sonthofen, reports: “We decided on a vacuum dryer with a dynamic drying process to implement the evaporation of the solvents at the end of the process. This means that the product is kept in constant motion. As a result, no nests with higher residual moisture or temperature form, so the proteins dry thoroughly and

Vibration screening machines: round vs. rectangular When a round vibro screen would be a better bet
Vibration screening machines: round vs. rectangular
When a round vibro screen would be a better bet Vibration screening machines are among the most popular screening machines on the market. No wonder, as this type of screening can be used for almost any product, with the exception of easily breakable bulk solids. It is particularly effective as the screening movement for vibration screening machines is, unlike with linear screening machines, vertical as well as horizontal, meaning even small vibration screening machines can achieve large levels of output. Vibration screening machines are available in a variety of different sizes and designs, meaning that the shape of the screen – which influences many different aspects of the screening process – probably plays the biggest role when it comes to selecting an appropriate machine. In addition to rectangular models, the screening technology specialist J. Engelsmann AG now supplies round vibration screening machines which have specific benefits, and are even the better choice for some applications. Round or rectangular? Small

Uniform discharge with the new Coperion k-TRON vibratory feeders While maintaining the integrity of fragile, friable, abrasive or fibrous materials
Uniform discharge with the new Coperion k-TRON vibratory feeders
While maintaining the integrity of fragile, friable, abrasive or fibrous materials Free-flowing bulk-solids handling can be tricky. You need to ensure a uniform discharge while maintaining the integrity of fragile, friable, abrasive or fibrous materials. Coperion K-Tron has thoughtfully engineered a line of vibratory feeders that achieve high accuracy via patent pending technology. Chemical Processing spoke with Urs Helfenstein, R&D mechanical engineer, Coperion K-Tron, regarding what makes the K3 vibratory feeders different from other feeding technologies. Q. What factors affect the selection? A. With vibratory devices, there are very different technologies available. For example, there are electric drives, which create a lot of noise. There are pneumatic devices, but pressurized air is an expensive power source. There are rotating masses to create vibration or oscillation. In this case you have moving parts, which means maintenance issues. We went down a new road and examined how masses are balanced. Shock absorbers are essential when it comes to

Poeth Big-Bag Filler with improved ergonomics automatically tilting filling head
Poeth Big-Bag Filler with improved ergonomics
automatically tilting filling head Poeth has developed a new generation of big bag fillers with greatly improved ergonomics: - tiltable filling head - movable hooks - automatic release of big bag loops - automatic buttoning of filling trunk - automatic stacking of big bags Tiltable filling head By making the filling head tiltable, it is much more accessible for the operator. Certainly with high capacities (> 20 big bags per hour) this can prevent back complaints. Movable hooks The loops of the big bag must be hung on hooks. The rear hooks are often difficult to reach. By making the hooks mobile, they slide forward so that the loops can be easily attached. This also prevents unnecessary back pain. Automatic release of big bag loops After filling, the loops are automatically disconnected. The system is also suitable for a very wide range of big-bag dimensions, without manually moving the suspension hooks. The system can be further equipped with options such as: - vibration system (to obtain a stable

Netzsch Discus Intensive bead Mill A quantum leap in the development for Agitator Bead Mills with Disk Agitators
Netzsch Discus Intensive bead Mill
A quantum leap in the development for Agitator Bead Mills with Disk Agitators Based on a grinding disk geometry with additional activation elements and the use of wear-resistant ceramic materials with the highest thermal conductivity, a significant increase in production output, averaging approx. 30%, had already been achieved for these agitator bead mills in 2012. Now the grinding system has been modified again. For this new development, the main focus was on the grinding media separation and optimization of the residence time distribution. While in the original centrifugal separation system the entire process area was divided into a separation zone and a grinding zone, with the new grinding media separation system the entire grinding area can now be filled with grinding media. This quite logically results in an increase in the grinding capacity which corresponds to the grinding media fill volume. In addition, tests with various products have shown that the newly developed grinding disk spacers, in combination with the new grinding media
