Superfast big-bag filling installation 180 big-bags/hour filling speed
Superfast big-bag filling installation
180 big-bags/hour filling speed Concetti has launched an automatic bulk bag (FIBC) weighing, filling and closing system designed to be operated by only one person. The new net weighing and filling station for single loop bulk bags can fill up to 180/BB per hour, ensuring a high productivity combined with increased flexibility. This system is designed to provide enhanced automation of a traditionally manual process that normally needs three workers, reducing costs and ensuring greater safety at work. With this innovative new design manufactured by Concetti, the machine operator should only place bags onto the filling spout, while all subsequent steps such as bag inflation, alignment of the filling neck after filling, transfer to the sealing station, heat sealing of the filling neck, lifting of the single bulk bag hook and automatic insertion of the sealed neck of the internal liner inside the bulk bag are all carried out automatically within the system. The full bags will then be removed by the fork

New anti-wear elbows 125mm Extrabend® and Extracurve® from WAM Innovative and durable
New anti-wear elbows 125mm Extrabend® and Extracurve® from WAM
Innovative and durable WAM is active in the bulkhandling sector for nearly 50 years. In this period different products graduately added to their program which directly gained an advantage in terms of innovation. Two of those products are the short radius elbow Extrabend® and the long radius elbow Extracurve® which were already available in diameters of 50, 80 and 100mm but recently also in a new diameter 125mm. The Extrabend® and the Extracurve® are manufactured from SINT engineering polymer. While the composition of the material is from our own development, both the elbows are also manufactured in our own production facility. This SINT polymer material is extremely fit for processing powder and granules with abrasive properties. One first big advantage over metal elbows is the flexibility and the adaptability and it will make positioning of the elbow much easier while the durability improve.The technic in combination with the material will extend the life of the elbows significantly in

Activated Carbon Injection System
Activated Carbon Injection System
General Features In the process of combustion at high temperatures, various gases spread out to the atmosphere. They are toxic and harmful to human health. Powdered activated carbon (PAC) is high performance adsorbent engineered to eliminate such toxic gases like dioxins, furans and other chemicals like mercury. In addition to flue gas treatment, another area of application is the removal of micropollutants in wastewater cleaning and drinking water treatment. Environmental problems affecting air and water are solved through the use of activated carbon. PAC is commonly used in chemical plants, steel mills, waste disposal facilities, coal-fired power plants and casting plants. Under normal conditions, baghouse filters are not eligible to prevent the spreading of the flue gases produced by the incineration process. Injecting PAC to the pipeline at the baghouse filter inlet adsorbs these gases. PAC within captured flue gases like dioxins, furans are captured by the filter

Poeth air supported  conveyor belt for Vitelia 276 mtr, 200 ton / hour 15 kW and 2 fans of 1.1. kW
Poeth air supported conveyor belt for Vitelia
276 mtr, 200 ton / hour 15 kW and 2 fans of 1.1. kW The floating conveyor belt, also known as AirConveyor or air supported conveyor belt or Airbelt, consists of a gutter with a few small holes and small specially designed fans. By constantly supplying the right amount of air, Poeth creates a powerful air film just below the conveyor belt within its new conveyor system. This powerful air film makes it possible to keep the conveyor belt, including bulk goods, floating. Only a single conveyor roller at the drive, tensioning and turning station is required to move the conveyor. Poeth`s new AirConveyor eliminates 95% of all rotating elements compared to traditional belt transport systems. As a result, Poeth`s AirConveyor has much less friction. This makes the airborne transport system 40% more energy efficient and, moreover, quiet

Gravity vee diverter handling trona ore
Gravity vee diverter handling trona ore
In this application, Trona Ore is routed through various processes where it becomes soda ash and baking soda. Titan Gravity Vee Diverter features a dual cylinder design where pneumatic cylinders are located on either side of the outlet instead of one cylinder at the end of the gate. This design shortens the gate’s overall length, allowing for easier installation in tight quarters. Each gate is independently actuated, providing added flexibility to the operation. Both gates can be closed. One gate can be open while the other is closed. Both gates can be open to allow flow to both destinations simultaneously. Wetted parts are constructed of abrasion resistant steel (400 BHN) to address material wear.

High speed doors for areas with risk of explosion (Atex) Antistatic certified speed doors for ATEX environments
High speed doors for areas with risk of explosion (Atex)
Antistatic certified speed doors for ATEX environments In areas with an increased risk of explosions it is very important to use the right materials when designing a specific area. Electric motors and static materials can cause a certain voltage that can lead to an explosion. The all new Dynaco ATEX series is especially designed for area’s with an increased risk of explosions. These doors are suitable for areas with an ATEX classification in zone 1 and 2 for gasses and zone 21 and 22 for dust. In technical terms these doors are suitable for zone: Ex II 2GD IIC T4, IIIB 135°C and Ex II 3GD IIC T4, IIIB 135°C. Design When designing the new Dynaco ATEX series everything was taken into account. All metal parts are made of high quality stainless steel. All non-metallic parts are made of antistatic or electrical conductive materials. The combination of these materials makes that the Dynaco ATEX series will never create any static voltage when in use. Certification Before installation, every door will be checked and certified

The value of modified atmosphere packaging in times of covid-19
The value of modified atmosphere packaging in times of covid-19
The coronavirus has affected everyone and every aspect of life. This pandemic comes with challenges we’ve never seen before, in many fields and markets. The earlier run on supermarkets and food products highlighted one of those challenges: ensuring that supply chains stay intact, preventing any delays, spoilage, and waste. The role of the packaging industry The packaging industry was recognized as a critical part of maintaining an uninterrupted flow of essential products early on in the crisis. Moreover, now more than ever, the importance of sustainable packaging practices is highlighted. It’s not just a pandemic, but also environmental challenges that ask for different ways of consuming and producing. Battling shortages by increasing shelf life Modified Atmosphere Packaging has proven to be a strong tool in preventing shortages. Border restrictions, workforce limitations: the measures different countries have taken, undeniably affect the speed in which products are

Cosmetics producer opts for safe and quick mixing
Cosmetics producer opts for safe and quick mixing
For our recent client, manufacturer of special cosmetics, Lindor`s unique gentle-touch technology proves to be a perfect solution for mixing sensitive substances. “Gentle-touch technology is a huge improvement for a safer production process,” says the operations manager, talking about the purchase of the Lindor L1500 mixer. The mixing machine is at the heart of production. It ensures that different ingredients, such as fine powders, granulates and natural products, are well mixed and processed into the required end product. Very sensitive, fragile products require a different way of processing. To meet this demand, Lindor developed gentle-touch technology, an efficient way of mixing. This uses natural gravity without the risk of breakage, heat or smearing by friction. Explosive substances Thorough and quick mixing can be dangerous when working with sensitive or even explosive substances, as in this case. As there were doubts about the quality and safety of the installed
