    Dry bulk material processing for the plastic industry

    Over the years, plastics have become the most dominant engineering material for most products.  All plastics are polymers; these polymers are further divided into two basic types: thermoplastics and thermosets. Extrusion can be used for thermoplastics. The raw material is in the form of pellets, granules, or powder. Meyer rotary valves are designed and engineered for dependable and reliable performance. The precision-engineered housing and rotor prevent material from getting jammed or sheared.

  • Moisture Monitoring for Injection Moulding

    Excess humidity in the air used to dry plastic pellets has several adverse effects on the quality of the products produced. The strength of the product is decreased. The surface of the product can be blemished. The product can have a ‘cloudy’ appearance.

    Gas Sensing for Gasification

    Syngas (short for synthetic gas) can be burnt and used as a fuel source, the main constituents of syngas are Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Hydrogen (H), which amount for around 85% of Syngas, and it is produced by a process called Gasification. Gasification starts with a base material which can originate from a wide variety of materials for example wood chips and pellets, plastics, municipal solid waste, sewage, waste crops, and fossil fuels such as coal. During Gasification the base material is reacted at high temperature without combustion with controlled amounts of oxygen (O) or steam. The composition of the base material combined with the amount of oxygen and heat used in the process affects the composition of the resultant SynGas, in which the CO can vary between around 20 and 60%. In addition, large amounts of H and CO are also formed. The measurement of CO is therefore an important feature in the production of SynGas.
