Developing a new formulation at the R&D stage can require multiple iterations to arrive at the optimal quality, functionality, cost or a combination of these and other factors.
Fine-tuned flow promotion devices, suitable filters and filter placement, as well as vacuum receiver design ensure peak performance in a system.
Application Note: Determination Of The Concentration Of Formaldehyde/Methanol/Water With Anton Paar Density/Sound Velocity Analyzer DSA 5000
This white paper presents some strategies for improving commonly encountered batch mixing problems. Because mixing processes vary from one application to another — with different objectives, design configurations, rheologies, operating limitations, etc. — there are no fix-all solutions that will apply to every situation.
A polymer services company installs several load-cell-based loss-in-weight feeders to automate its ingredient-feeding process and eliminate problems caused by manually handling and feeding the ingredients. By Schenck AccuRate
SunSweet Growers, a north California bottler, was thrilled as its number one client hit soft drink pay dirt with line after line of specialty beverages.
Sticky powders present manufacturers and processors with unique material conveying challenges involving volumetric auger fillers that dispense powders, granulars, and flakes for packaging. This article demonstrates how a proprietary vacuum conveying design prevents a sticky material handling problem.
Mifa AG is Switzerland’s largest detergent and cooking oil manufacturer, and in addition to several types of butter, cooking oil and margarine, also produces detergents and household cleaning products in liquid and powder form. A suitable solution has now been found for the company’s outdated washing powder filling system that has done more than just positively affect productivity.
With today's economic pressures, more plant managers and others charged with conveying powders, granular items, and flakes for packaging are adopting the automatic operation of vacuum conveying and packaging equipment as standards to hit critical price points for market success.
The Schenck AccuRate PureFeed® AP-300 feeder was designed specifically for sanitary processes that include the following customer driven features: quick and easy disassembly, a dual arm agitation system for maximizing material handling versatility, and an FDA compliant EPDM feed hopper that is disposable and recyclable. That means simpler, shorter cleaning cycles and virtually, no chance of cross contamination when moving from one material to another. The PureFeed® AP-300 is available in volumetric and gravimetric configurations with feed rates from 0.5 to approximately 150 Kg / hour.
Specially designed for applications requiring the maximum possible material handling and changeover flexibility along with the convenience of fast cleaning capability, K-Tron’s T35/S60 Quick Change Feeder is available in economical volumetric or high-performance loss-in-weight configurations.
The Ross MegaShear Ultra-High Shear Mixer is designed for homogenizing dispersions and disintegrating large solid particles or droplets suspended in liquid. A unique inline rotor/stator design, the MegaShear’s mixing head (US Patent No. 6,241,472) turns at tip speeds well over 11,000 ft/min and generates extremely complex flow patterns without sacrificing throughput
In this age of technological marvels and Internet madness, it's refreshing to see an innovation that isn't the product of an exotic new technology.
Ross Technical Director Ken Langhorn announces the addition of a new 10-gallon PowerMix Planetary Disperser to the Ross Test & Development Center.
Ross offers complete mixer packages for fast and efficient dispersion of bulk solids in large batches. Pictured is a 1000-gallon Dual-Shaft Mixer with Inline Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM) and Recirculation Skid. At the heart of the process is the SLIM Technology which utilizes a specially engineered rotor/stator that generates a powerful vacuum for drawing solids into the mix chamber.
