We have made some significant improvements to our range of Bulk Bag Fillers – all designed to increase filling accuracy and cycle time.
The all new C Series Bulk Bag Filler is the model for users wanting to remove bags on a pallet by forklift truck. It retains the robust, 2 leg frame offering unimpeded access to the front of the filler for the easy hanging of empty bags. Dependent upon the application, filling can either controlled by volume or by weight. For customers wanting ‘Weights and Measures’ (OIML) approval, there is the option of an automatic ‘gain-in-weight’ weighing system with programmable one-touch controls. The operator can control Bulk Bag Filler operations, accurate to +/- 1%, as well as the upstream material feed devices. (more…)

Alternative energy projects are getting large investments by the US government and venture capitalists as our country struggles with how to deal with global warming and dependence on foreign oil. Using biomass waste to generate power reduces the need for environmentally unfriendly energy sources such as coal.
One US alternative energy company has developed a pressurized combustion process that takes wood product waste and uses it to generate electrical and thermal energy. The high pressure/high temperature combustion gas is used to drive a gas turbine that generates electricity. Their standard systems are designed to produce from 1 to 10 MW of power that can be used at the site or even sold to the local grid. In additon, the high temperature turbine exhaust gas can be used for drying product, generating steam, or producing more power with the use of a steam turbine. They recently installed their first system and used a FKI cyclone to help make it work. (more…)

A large company who supplies high quality titanium metal products was searching for a reliable way to detect any plugged chute conditions that may arise in their process. Titanium is used in hundered of diverse aerospace, industrial and emerging applications where no other metal is as reliable or economical, especially on a lifecycle costing basis.
The customer was looking for a level control to be successfully used as a plugged chute detector; the customer had experienced problems with RF probes from another manufacturer. Plugged chute detection is critical to make sure the material is flowing properly through a process. A plugged chute condition can cause problems with transfer rates, mix ratios, and production “down stream”. Monitor offers several options for plugged chute detection. For this situation, the high temperature SafePoint® rotary paddle bin indicator was the best choice. (more…)
