New quickly cleanable rotary valve “Easy Clean”
New quickly cleanable rotary valve “Easy Clean”
Many of you know this problem. Again and again your rotary valve has to be fully dismounted and cleaned, because a new medium has to be processed and you want to prevent contamination of your product flow. Easy clean rotary valve To avoid this annoying and often costly task, VDL has developed a new, quick-disassembly version of its well-known HT-S rotary valve. This HT-S Easy Clean valve combines the qualities of the HT-S with a high level of efficiency in cleaning because the rotor can be removed and repositioned in an easy manner, without tools. Safe cleaning The HT-S Easy Clean is equipped with a slide rail system with extremely accurate bearings. After releasing a couple of hand-operated knobs, the rotor slides out along this rail-system. A safety switch ensures disconnection of the drive, which stays in place. Quick-(dis)assembly You have finished cleaning? A simple pushing back of the rotor and retightening of the knobs finishes the job and makes your HT-S

Gentle screening meets clever handling
Gentle screening meets clever handling
Regardless of whether you are mixing, conveying or dosing – when it comes to handling fragile bulk solids, sensitivity is required. This particularly applies to screening machines, as the back and forth movement on the screen surface places a relatively high mechanical stress on the screening product. If this aspect is not taken into consideration when choosing and designing your screening machine, it can lead to an unwanted breakdown of grains which then results in an increased number of over- and undersized particles in the product, causing it to be no longer fit for purpose. A screening process that is gentle to the product is therefore a decisive criteria for many facility operators when it comes to choosing the right screening machine. An additional issue that screening machine suppliers have to face – aside from ensuring the quality of the screening product – is the demand for a machine handling that is a simple as possible. This requirement is commonly put in

How to Make High-Quality Plastic Compounds Out of Packaging Waste APK Relies on Coperion ZSK Extruder Technology for Newcycling®
How to Make High-Quality Plastic Compounds Out of Packaging Waste
APK Relies on Coperion ZSK Extruder Technology for Newcycling® Stuttgart, October 2020 – For its innovative, solvent-based plastic recycling process Newcycling®, APK AG in Merseburg, is relying on the high-performance ZSK extruder technology and technical process expertise from Coperion. Using the Newcycling® process, multi-polymer and multi-layer plastic packaging, that previously could not be recycled, can now be separated and processed into homogeneous regrind using ZSK twin screw extruders. In contrast to chemical recycling, the polymer in this process remains unchanged and does not require energy- and cost-intensive re-polymerization. Newcycling®, therefore, is highly efficient from a cost and from an environmental perspective. Thanks to the innovative, solvent-based Newcycling® treatment, as well as the excellent devolatilization performance and gentle material handling in the ZSK extruder, the quality of the recyclates is close to that of virgin product. Plastic Waste as Challenge and Opportunity The amount of plastic waste

Full view on dosing
Faster visual check Brabender Technologie continues to adapt their wide portfolio of bulk dosing solutions to the wishes of the market. In addition to visual control via the control panel, visual control at the dosing unit itself will soon be possible even faster. Brabender Technology brings a transparent vertical spout on the market for this purpose. The new transparent vertical spout of PETG is a non-flexible plastic that remains dimensionally stable up to 90°C. The material is food grade, FDA compliant and therefore ideally suited for the food industry.

Process Technologies to Optimize Detergent Manufacturing
How can cleaning agents components be produced in a more environmentally friendly and effective way? How can cleaning agents components be produced in a more environmentally friendly and effective way? With fluid bed and spouted bed technologies, plant manufacturer and process expert, Glatt Ingenieurtechnik, offers modern, established solutions. As a manufacturer of consumer goods, the detergent industry must respond to megatrends like no other. One of these drivers is sustainability; eco-friendly biosurfactants have been available since 2009 and, now, alternative complexing agents such as α-ADA or MGDA-Na3 can be produced from renewable raw materials and used to replace phosphates. According to the German Zukunftsinstitut (Future Institute), the neo-ecology megatrend is causing a reorientation of the values of global society, culture and politics and will have a defining impact on the 2020s. Consumers and business partners alike are asking about transparent value creation and whether social aspects are being considered. As an example, seamless traceability has

Screening animal meal with a Rhewum WA static sreening machine Very fine screening of products for the growing petfood market
Screening animal meal with a Rhewum WA static sreening machine
Very fine screening of products for the growing petfood market A French manufacturer of dog and cat food decided to use a RHEWUM screening machine type WA for the screening of animal meal. Animal meal is often added to animal feed as a source of protein and used as food for pets as well as zoo animals. Under strict conditions, it is also suitable as a fertilizer in agriculture. For the feed capacity of 20 tons of animal feed per hour the customer now bought a screening machine type WA with suitable feeder type SV from RHEWUM which replaces an outdated screening machine of another machine manufacturer. The separation is at 1 mm for removing lumps and impurities. The type WA is excellently suited for sieving powder and meal in the finest to medium grain range and can be easily integrated into existing plants. The direct transmission of the vibrations to the screen mesh via powerful electromagnets is not only energy-efficient, but also enables extremely high accelerations of more than 15 g and thus guarantees a sharp separation even
