Adjustment installation improves quality of compost
Adjustment installation improves quality of compost
HVC tries to give waste a new life. The waste that can not be processed further, is converted into electricity, heat or green gas. The installation in Purmerend makes compost of organic waste and food leftovers from the green container for fertilizing gardens. Jansen&Heuning has modified the existing installation at HVC Purmerend, whereby an extra screening installation has been built in. This will improve the quality of the compost. The adjustment to the installation consists of screw conveyors JHS500, conveyor belts and platforms. Since the existing installation had to be adjusted, our engineering measured the entire process and worked it out in 3D in order to achieve an optimal connection with the existing installation. “The reason for this investment was to improve the quality of the compost. The cooperation with Jansen&Heuning went well; there was proper consultation and we were able to help each other well. The installation is also doing well; the quality of

Loading bellow dust free JHBB300 loading bellow for Alpuro Breeding
Loading bellow dust free
JHBB300 loading bellow for Alpuro Breeding Jansen&Heuning has deliverd a loading bellow to Alpuro in Uddel, the Netherlands. Alpuro Breeding provides the livestock former everything he/she needs for a successful calf breeding. Alpuro was looking for a loading bellow for both the discharge in open trucks and bulk trucks. Reason for the replacement of the existing bellows was the dust that the installation produced. The biggest challenge was the installation dimensions; the loading bellow should not be more than 850 mm high in retracted position, while the stroke of the loading bellow should be at least 2.100 mm. Furthermore, the loading bellow is equipped with a capacitive sensor that automatically follow the product level. The customer is very satisfied with our product and the technically very compact solution.

Pneumatic Conveying Systems
Pneumatic Conveying Systems
Pneumatic conveying is a process by which bulk materials of almost any type are transferred or injected by using a gas flow as the conveying medium from one or more sources to one or more destinations (silo, hopper, ground, truck, bag, big bag, etc.) Well designed pneumatic conveying systems designed are practical and cost-efficient methods of transporting materials. In these systems, materials do not pass through fast-moving parts unlike some other mechanical systems (belt conveyors, screw conveyors, vibrating conveyors, drag conveyors, bucket elevators, etc.). By this way, any damage to transported products is prevented. That is the reason it is preferred by many industries to ensure the safe transfer of their resources and products. Simple installation, low maintenance need, long years of problem-free service, endurance for harsh environments are key features of these systems. Polimak provides pneumatic conveying solutions to a variety of industries including steel,

Dealing with Bulk Materials Efficiently An Interview with a Bulk Solids Expert
Dealing with Bulk Materials Efficiently
An Interview with a Bulk Solids Expert Emptying bulk goods efficiently and without residues can easily prove to be a challenge, as not every bulk material can be dealt with the same. Engelsmann Product Developer Viktor Quindt addresses common problems to be considered and provides an outlook for the future trends of the coming years. Mr. Quindt, why does the processing of bulk materials often present difficulties? The various properties of the bulk material often prove to be the greatest challenge. Many bulk materials tend to form dust, while others are high in fat or particularly breakable. And as if different bulk materials presenting peculiarities was not enough, some identical products even tend to react differently in specific environments. A typically unproblematic product can clump when transported over long distances or react differently than in a tempered space when it is exposed to high humidity and temperatures. Naturally this influences the equipment used and must be considered at all times. What

Vortex Roller Gates Offer Long Life Handling Grain
Vortex Roller Gates Offer Long Life Handling Grain
In 1996, Vortex worked with Alltech, an animal health company, to assist with the handling of grain at their facility. Application: The client’s specifications include: •Quantity: 2 Vortex Roller Gates •Gate Size: 660 mm opening •Blade & seal retainers constructed from 304 stainless steel •Contact areas constructed from 304 stainless steel & polymer Results: Since their installation in 1996, these Vortex Roller Gates have required very limited maintenance other than the replacement of a set of bonnet seals on one of the gates. “After 24 years of service, we needed to pull one of the gates as it began leaking around the seal,” said Robert Stuart, Maintenance & Facilities Manager at Alltech. “After dismantling the valve, we were awestruck on how well it looked and held up over the past 24 years as our products are abrasive and have severely worn down many other pieces of equipment over the years.” The Vortex Roller Gate is designed with several replaceable parts, including

Brabender Technologie FlexWall® feeders in hygiënic blue Precise hygienic dosing
Brabender Technologie FlexWall® feeders in hygiënic blue
Precise hygienic dosing Brabender Technologie provides its famous FlexWall® feeders with a blue polyurethane trough as standard. With this trough Brabender Technologie responds to the demands of the food industry. Other plastic productcontactparts of the FlexWall® are also available in blue, such as seals and vertical outlet. Blue color plastics are synonymous with Hygienic Design and are therefore often used in the food industry. Operators can now better assess the cleanliness of components such as spores, mold and food. If fragments accidentally end up in food when used incorrectly, they can be quickly identified. Cleaning agent residues can also be identified more quickly than on other colored plastic hoppers.

Lödige`s Ringlayer mixer CoriMix® for continuous operation especially developed for creating very fine granules
Lödige`s Ringlayer mixer CoriMix® for continuous operation
especially developed for creating very fine granules The Lödige CoriMix® is a high-speed, continuous mixer that creates very fine granules through the homogeneous mixing of liquids into powdery substances. The machine is relatively small but once the process is well defined, the CoriMix® can handle high throughputs. The powder is dosed from above and the liquid can be added through nozzles on the bottom of the CoriMix® or through the mixing shaft. By mixing the powder with a liquid and eventually a binding agent, you will create a bridging effect which automatically creates small granules. In general the resulting grain size is between 100 µm and 1.5 mm. If you target bigger granules, then a continuous Lödige Ploughshare® mixer KM or a Lödige Ploughshare® mixer FKM or FM for batch processes is the better solution.

TBMA introduces new plug type diverters
TBMA introduces new plug type diverters
Diverter valves or product flow distributors are an essential part in pneumatic and freefall conveying systems. TBMA can now offer its own plug diverter valves for the diverting and/or converging of powders and granules for pneumatic conveying systems. The DTD double channel plug diverter and the SDTD single channel plug diverter are suitable for applications in dilute or dense phase or vacuum pneumatic conveying systems in the food, feed, chemical, plastics, pharmaceutical and biomass industries. The smart, value engineered design ensures a smooth product flow and minimal switching time with as little product degradation as possible. The diverter valves are easy to inspect and clean by removing the cover on the non-drive side. There are no moving parts on the outside for maximum operator safety. The DTD is available in 7 sizes (50-200), while the SDTD is currently available in 4 sizes (150-300). Both types are optionally available with inflatable seals, suitable for
