  • The true value of magnetic separators and metal detectors in bulk handling

    Introduction The purpose of a bulk material handling may be to transport material from one of several locations to an ultimate destination or to process material such as ore in concentrating and smelting or handling materials for manufacturing. The handling of dry materials in loose bulk form involved the extensive use of static machinery such as belt conveyors, screw conveyors, and various ...

  • Moving difficult-to-handle bulk materials with flexible screw conveyors

    Flexible screw conveyor systems can be engineered to transport bulk materials that tend to pack, cake, smear, break apart or fluidize, and can prevent the separation of blended products. Flexible screw conveyors (Fig. 1) are suitable for most bulk materials, from sub-micron powders to large pellets, both free-flowing and non-free flowing. They are capable of conveying bulk materials at any angle ...

  • Weigh batching: the benefits of an automated system

    In many plants that batch-blend bulk products, weigh batching is a manual, time-consuming operation in which ingredients are weighed individually before being charged to a blender or other process vessel. A significant number of such plants could benefit from the installation of an automated weigh batching system. For small as well as large operations, an automated weigh batching system can pay ...

  • In Situ Solidification/Stabilization

    Introduction Solidification/stabilization (S/S) reduces the mobility of hazardous substances and contaminants in the environment through both physical and chemical means. Unlike other remedial technologies, S/S seeks to trap or immobilize contaminants within their 'host' medium (i.e., the soil, sand, and/or building materials that contain them), instead of removing them through chemical or ...

  • A cut above - a sanitary rotary cutter-crusher solves a pharmaceutical product company`s size reduction problem

    A sanitary rotary cutter-crusher solves a pharmaceutical product company's size reduction problem. "We make this pharmaceutical product that ends up being big bricks of tough, brittle material", says the blending team leader of a growing pharmaceutical products company, "and we couldn't reduce it to the size it needed to be. I can't even begin ...

  • A cut above - A sanitary rotary cutter-crusher solves a pharmaceutical product company`s size reduction problem

    "We make this pharmaceutical product that ends up being big bricks of tough, brittle material", says the blending team leader of a growing pharmaceutical products company, "and we couldn't reduce it to the size it needed to be. I can't even begin to tell you how frustrating it was." The team leader is discussing the problem his company had with one of its key products, a bulk sweetener ...

  • Blending of would-be landfill turns out greener cement-based products

    The vision of a greener future for the construction industry motivates Andrew Dennis, an architect here who founded a company dedicated to producing environmentally friendly cement-based products. Instead of the heavy aggregates found in standard concrete, the materials made by GigaCrete Inc. include non silica based sands and byproducts of coal combustion, fly-ash and bottom-ash and recycled ...

  • Standardizing grinder line helps Richmond firm reduce costs

    Wood waste processors, like most professionals, are experts at adapting to changing times, conditions or economics. That change will, of course, vary according to the situation at hand: if the issue is transportation-related, they will work to shorten routes or find more fuel-efficient vehicles; if the issue is cost, they will find a way to do things more efficiently; and so on. For Grind-All ...

  • Vibrating feeders for stockpiling and reclaim

    The expanding applications of vibratory feeders for controlling the flow of bulk materials, and their adaptation for processing requirements, have developed considerable interest in stockpiling and reclaim systems. The general design of these units consists of a material transporting trough, or platform, driven by a vibratory force system. The flexibility and variety of designs is limited only by ...

  • Data Requirements for Soil, Sediment, and Sludge

    Site soil conditions frequently limit the selection of a treatment process. Process-limiting characteristics such as pH or moisture content may sometimes be adjusted. In other cases, a treatment technology may be eliminated based upon the soil classification (e.g., particle-size distribution) or other soil characteristics. Soils are inherently variable in their physical and chemical ...
